What do you think?

Our bags are, first and foremost, functional pieces. Of course we also like to make them look stylish, charming and finished with the perfect touch of vintage, but ultimately this is something you will be carrying your belongings in and we want to make sure that is done in the most convenient way possible. That’s why feedback from all our lovely customers is so important, we love reading your reviews on our Etsy and NOTHSt stores and we really do pay attention. For instance a lot of you were saying the you’d prefer the buckles to be easier to open, so we changed the design to using magnetic buckles instead. So in this blog thought we’d take a look and explore some more suggestions, compliments
and comments you’ve left us to see what we’re doing right and if there’s anything we could improve on.

The Vintage Child Large Leather Wash Bag comes with a totally separate zipped bottom compartment and a larger top compartment, this was designed as a toiletries bag but Daisy left us an Etsy review saying that she uses it as a make up bag – what a great idea:

“So pleased with it! I use the bottom compartment for my makeup brushes and it’s just perfect!”

The Vintage Child City Camera bag has a fully padded structure and folding corners for ultimate protection of your camera equipment, the leather is think and durable to keep out the elements and Velcro padding means the inside is versatile. Emily on Etsy is making full use of all these features as she told us in her review:

“Beautiful quality. Fits 35 mm, DSLR, mic, cords etc. with adjustable inner padding. Bought this to travel with and foresee many years of good use. Not to mention that it’s so chic.”

It’s great for us to learn what can be carried in our bags, especially with technical equipment that photographers need, it really helps us in future designing work. Our bags are designed in the hope that they will last you for years without the need to replace them, leather is a beautiful natural product that ages to form a beautiful patina so it’s great when we hear a bag is being bought as an investment piece like Katie’s Vintage Child Markham Extra Large Leather Weekend Bag she bought from NOTHSt:

“Excellent quality, beautiful bag which will last for years. A great investment piece. Really happy with my purchase.”

We love it when you tell us about how our bags are being put to good use and hope that they all last for years to come, going on many adventures with you and seeing the world.

If you have any feedback we’d always love to hear from you. If you have a leather colour request (we get black a lot and it is coming!), a design tweak idea, have a comment about the website, shopping experience, shipping or just want to tell us that you’re enjoying your bag then we would always love to hear from you, just get in touch!
