Excellent service!

Helpful, friendly, warm, and exceeded expectations.

Ann Currid


I contacted Bagraft a couple of months ago in connection with a suitcase we had purchased a few years ago. The wheels now had a mind of their own. After contacting Gary at Bagcraft and emails going backwards and forwards he eventually tracked down wheels in Ireland. The problem had been Brexit and getting the wheels through customs from France. Thanks to his perseverance they arrived today and worked a treat. Now that’s what I call “Customer Service” I will have no hesitation in recommending the company and Gary for the way they look after customers. Excellent and thank you.

Robbie Graham



A very pleasant relaxed purchase experience. The delightful Lady who served us was extremely helpful, personable and well-versed in the advantages of the products we purchased.

Richard Pratt



Friendly, professional service, much better experience than just buying a bag on Amazon. I will definitely shop there again

Nigel Nisbett



Exceptional service. Very professional and the kind of personal service one cannot find anywhere else.
I cannot recommend Bagcraft strongly enough.
Thank you so much.

A lovely and traditional store complete with a personal, knowledgeable and courteous service offering a wide range of superior quality leather goods including handbags, purses, wallets, credit card holders, man bags, travel bags etc. In the centre of thriving Leigh-on-Sea Bagcraft is celebrating its 44th Birthday. Bagcraft success and longevity speak volumes. Thank you for my purchase today, nicely packaged, and it makes the perfect present. Thank you also for a lovely shopping experience. I really enjoyed it.

Fantastic first-class professional and excellent service from Gary. Gary went out of his way to help and assist and the item received was excellent. Thank you Gary and all the team, I look forward to buying from you in the very near future.

G B  . April,

Lindsey Illingworth.  April

Super friendly and accommodating, stocked the Samsonite accessory I just couldn’t find anywhere else, good price and reasonable shipping cost, great communication though-out the sale, would definitely buy from again.

Eddie Callan, March

I was looking for this small watermelon-shaped purse and I found it only at Bagcraft; the great difficulty was postage through Brexit and Covid-19 storm from the UK to Greece, Gary excelled in helping me to receive it because it was not that easy; Gary thank again for the excellent service


Quality of Bagcraft of Leigh-On-sea

I have been a customer at Bagcraft of Leigh-On-Sea for many years. I have always found them very helpful and polite. Gary is a gem nothing is too much trouble for him. The bags have always been top quality design and fair price. I can never fault my purchases.

J Smith, 5th March 


Absolutely amazing – thank you so much. Fantastic trolley ( I hope my Mum likes it for Mother’s Day) friendly quick to deliver. I would definitely recommend

Jacky Oliver,  


Great experience

Great experience shopping with Bagcraft. I ordered my new purse online and although I live locally I did not expect it to be delivered by hand the same day! The great service and quality of the item I bought were superb.

Janet Halladay  

Amazing shop,

Amazing Shop, with absolutely fantastic service – above and beyond



Great company

I‘ve just bought my second Spirit handbag from Bagcraft. Gary was really helpful and informative over the phone and I’m delighted with my new larger bag, it’s perfect for my needs and is a fab colour. Ten years ago Bagcraft was the only shop I could find that stocked Spirit bags, the customer service was great then and is still excellent. I thoroughly recommend them.

Excellent Service and Product.

I purchased two Spirit Bags from Bagcraft. The process was excellent from start to finish. I ordered by telephone and the person I spoke to was very helpful and well-informed. The bags arrived within a couple of days and were very well packed and perfect. I will use this firm again.

We use Bagcraft regularly

We use Bagcraft regularly and have always found just what we wanted or needed at a good price.

Donald Soper

The second time was just as good.

This is the second time that I have used Bagcraft. Brilliant price and even better customer service. Cannot be beaten.

Simon Noakes 

I would certainly recommend this shop

I bought a beautiful Rowallan leather satchel from Bagcraft for my daughter as a graduation present. I was really impressed with the service, they contacted me with photographs to check I was happy with the colour etc., and the package arrived quickly and very well wrapped. I would certainly recommend this shop.

Ruth Powell 

Great service!

Great service! I ordered a bag to replace one I had worn out and it was the wrong one. Gary sourced the one I wanted and it was delivered the next day.

Excellent shopping experience and I’m very happy.

Ron Hobson 


I would recommend them 100%.

Despite the circumstances due to the virus outbreak, they managed the situation outstandingly well and answered every question I had about the shipping and my order very quickly. I am very happy with my item as it is exactly what I ordered. And amazing customer service as well. I would recommend them 100%.

Queralt Martín 


Excellent personal service

Excellent personal service, very helpful and responsive. Would definitely use it again and would recommend it to others.


Favourite gloves

I had lost a pair of my favourite gloves and could not find a replacement pair in the U.S. When I found Bagcraft, I was thrilled. Not only did they have what I wanted, but the service was terrific! I could not have been more pleased!

Jamie Williams 


Fantastic customer service

Fantastic customer service, Gary dealt with my order and was very helpful and kept me updated throughout the process, and the bag is great. I’d definitely recommend shopping here

Emma Rigg  

Lovely shop

Lovely shop things are not low cost here but the excellent quality and very helpful staff I would shop here again as it’s ideal for Christmas
Happy shopping from Karen.

Karen Woolford 


Amazing Customer Service

I ordered a Christmas gift from the US To be delivered to the Uk on this site. As I was nervous about not being familiar with this company, I had to call twice with questions. The level of customer service has surpassed any company I have ever had to contact. I have worked in customer service for over 20 years and am so impressed. My contact at Bagcraft has been Gary. Not only did he respond quickly and politely but offered to look into my shipment progress even further just to put my mind at ease with the delivery and email me an update. I would highly recommend this company with complete confidence

My daughter and I usually buy our bags from Bagcraft

My daughter and I usually buy bags from Bagcraft, a good selection of leather handbags and luggage. The staff are friendly and very helpful. I am really pleased with the new soft black leather handbag that I bought 2 weeks ago. Highly recommend this shop.

Janice Meachem 

The only place to buy your handbags etc in Leigh-on-Sea

The only place to buy your handbags, purses, wallets, luggage etc is Leigh on Sea in my opinion.
My family and I have always gone to Bagcraft for several reasons – firstly the range is fantastic and of very high quality, secondly, if there is ever a repair required the goods are taken in and fixed no questions asked even without your receipt they have your details registered on their system so there’s no typical “no receipt can’t help you attitude” you get from big stores, thirdly everyone in there is so lovely even when I go in with my 4-year-old son who runs riot it’s no worries!


I highly recommend this shop

I highly recommend this shop. Great staff, fantastic service, qualities sadly lacking in many shops now

Tracey Bryant

Have used this shop for years

Have used this shop for years. Always an excellent and helpful service. The owners are especially caring and have a deep knowledge of all of their products. First Class.

Alan Halls 


Great service, great product. Received on the date promised to meet my travel plans. Excellent.


Extremely pleased

Extremely pleased with the service I received. My telephone query was dealt with in a very efficient and friendly manner, I then placed my order online and could track my delivery via a courier service. I really feel like they care about their customers.

Cj 9th 

Absolutely outstanding service

Absolutely outstanding service! They went out of their way to help me with fast delivery and I received my order in plenty of time. And the product I purchased is of great quality as well, thoroughly happy with my experience from start to finish.

Martina Iezzi 

It has an excellent selection of travel bags and cases.

 Paul Harvey 

Couldn’t have been more helpful

Couldn’t have been more helpful in repairing my Samsonite suitcase, and they did an excellent job – when I am sure that others might have said to scrap it and buy a new one. Would highly recommend

Graham Villiers


What a really great service!!

What a really great service!!! I ordered suitcase over the weekend and it arrived this morning. Garry was really helpful on the telephone when I enquired about delivery date and it arrived as promised. I would thoroughly recommend Bagcraft and will certainly use again for any luggage needs in the future.

Elizabeth Neame 19 Feb 2019


Excellent customer service and a great range of products in store. This little shop is the only place I go for any bag and luggage needs. They have expert knowledge of all products stocked. They are always welcoming and friendly and it’s always a pleasure to shop there.
I thoroughly recommend BAGCRAFT!

Excellent service

There was a manufacturing problem with the bag I received. The team at bagcraft efficiently dealt with the problem and very quickly I was sent another bag. Excellent service, would definitely use them again.

Over ten years of great customer service

I’ve been buying bags from Bagcraft for over a decade because they are so good that I rarely need to look anywhere else. Their products are excellent and I have always found their customer service to be exemplary – prompt, friendly and very helpful.

Sophie Watson 15 Jan 2019

A personal, prompt and professional service. Thank you!

After a long search for a particular bag, I found it at Bagcraft. I was pleased to be able to use a small, independent firm and even more pleased with the personal, professional and prompt service I received. Martin was very honest in explaining the bag might not be available, then nonetheless obtained one for me and arranged delivery (with a very reliable courier I hasten to add) ahead of both Christmas and the date I’d expected. And the bag is fabulous! Thank you.

JoH 29 Dec 2018

Great customer service

I contacted this company directly rather than ordering through Amazon as I needed more information about the products. The service was excellent and Martin made sure I received my order in time for Christmas. Will be using them again.

Liz Dowie 19th December 2018

Far exceeded my expectations

Far exceeded my expectations. These guys really care about you and the service you get. I took my case in for repair. They returned it to Samsonite and when it came back they were not happy with the quality of the work so they sent it back to them, twice! I was kept informed all of the time and there was no extra cost. It’s so refreshing to have someone care that much. Would highly recommend Bagcraft!

Chris Boulton 29th November 2018


Always a pleasure to shop at BAGCRAFT – their products are high quality and the staff are thoroughly knowledgeable, helpful and professional. If they don’t have it, they will find it and get it in for you. If YOU have found it and they don’t have it, they will also get it in for you!
If only some other shops were to take customer service so seriously!
I thoroughly recommend them, and I consider myself a customer for life

Harry Palmer 21st November 2018

We have purchased numerous things from Bagcraft over the last 30 years. It is refreshing that in today’s society, a company can still offer good old-fashioned service whilst remaining competitive.

Most recently, my wife had the zip on a handbag repaired, this was undertaken free of charge, despite being about 3 years old.

It’s a shame we can’t buy bags more often!

Kevin Price 11th November 2018

Fantastic service as usual

We have used this company for over 20 years now. Bought two products today again very good service. They definitely put the customer first. A good business who will stop at nothing to ensure a good service. Well done!

Mr Currell 9th November 2018

It’s refreshing to find a company that is helpful +++++

Its refreshing to find a company or shop that has good old fashion customer service. Bagcraft takes the time to find the right product for you whether its a new purse, wallet, bag or suitcase. Bagcraft does this without making you feel under pressure to make a purchase, which in turn allows you to find the right item you’re looking for rather than what they want to sell you. In my experience that have gone the extra mile to make the sale once you have decided what you want. Would recommend as I have bought from here 4 times now.

Sandra 15th October 2018


Excellent service. even with a smile

Took samsonite case in for repair day before a holiday as I’d only just noticed wheel was broken the girl in shop fixed it within an hour ? I had bought the case six years ago from them and still receipts ? excellent service even with a smile ?

Margaret Jackson  September 2018

A family firm selling decent quality products you can trust.
People who know what their business – and they care about their customers.
I’ve gone to Bagcraft since 1990 for all my luggage, briefcase, baggage and even wallet needs – and they even have handy travel accessories in the shop too.
I’ve never had a single problem with any purchase – only once owing to airport damage to a case, which they sorted a cost-effective repair for.
Always a friendly welcome from the owners, always happy to spend time with customers to show you the product range to ensure you get the best for your needs – and you don’t get that from the internet.
I would recommend the business without any reservations at all – lovely people to do business with and always ready with a smile to help you.
10/10 – thank you Bagcraft!

John G. Lidstone August 2018

Fast service very nice to deal with.

have used this company for many years…

I have used this company for many years now and made many recommendations to friends. I recently took in my suitcase to be repaired because a wheel had come off. I did this on a Wednesday morning and this case was ready for collection the following Tuesday with no charge. I can only praise them for a very efficient service and look forward to further transactions with Bagcraft in the future.

Janice Johnson  13th August 2018

Excellent customer service

Excellent customer service and take the time to make sure you get the perfect product suited to your needs (even though I showed up 10 minutes before they close!). They have items to suit all price ranges and are happy to recommend cheaper ones if they are fit for purpose. Highly recommend.

Woz Raja 8th August 2018

I bought a new suitcase at Bagcraft…

I bought a new suitcase at Bagcraft because mine was damaged in transit. I found Gary very knowledgeable and helpful. Good selection of luggage and handbags. Service excellent and because I was an overseas traveller, Gary processed my refund very promptly. I would not hesitate to recommend Bagcraft.

Alicia Anderson 27 June 2018

Excellent service and advice

K Anderson 13 June 2018

HELP – lost keys Samsonite suitcase

I lost my keys from Samsonite suitcase,I did not have a lock number.
Samsonite distributor in Czech Republic has offered a new suitcase for the price 400,-USD.
Bagcraft Team, on the basis photos of my suitcase, sent me new keys, I paid only 7,- GBP.
They saved me a lot of money. Nowadays unbelievable !
They are real experts.
Many Thanks , Dalibor Zyka, Czech Republic

Dalibor Zyka 04 June 2018

Second to none

I have bought all of my luggage from Bagcraft for over 20 years now and their very professional and helpful service is as good now as it was all of these years ago. They are a family run business who take a great pride in the products and service they provide. I have had some service issues with my Samsonite luggage over the years which have mainly been caused by extremely heavy use but Bagcraft have been excellent at having repairs done, often free of charge and always quickly.

B Wallace 24 May 2018

After sales service at its best.

We have bought all of our suitcases from Bagcraft and after our latest dealing with them will continue to do for the seeable future. A Samsonite case had a broken extendable handle, it was about 6 years old but they were still happy to return it to Samsonite for us. After no more than a week we received a text from them informing us that the suitcase was back with a new handle and at no cost. After sales service is just important and we have absolutely no complaints about theirs. Here’s hoping that they continue for many years to come.

Jane Johnson  07 May 2018

We have used Bagcraft

We have used Bagcraft, in Leigh Broadway, several times and their level of personal service and product quality and knowledge is first rate.
We recently brought in my wife’s 10-year-old handbag for a small repair, which was carried out immediately at no cost and included the bag being polished.
I also required a combination lock to be reset which was also completed at no cost.
We would not hesitate to recommend Bagcraft for any of your Bag/ luggage requirements.

Roy Chopping 26 April 2018

Simply the best !

We recently visited Bagcraft in Leigh-on-sea and bought an “American Tourister” suitcase made by Samsonite. I really was blown away by the professionalism of the staff here and actually enjoyed the experience. The shop is in the centre of Leigh and is a small family run business. Often I walk past shops like this and muse over how on earth they can stay in business in the face of online giants with incomparable economies of scale and consumers’ ability to filter the identical products by price.

Now I know.!

I can read reviews and go to huge stores in the capital to get what I want but – embarrassingly – I had overlooked the possibility that staff in a small personal family run business might have detailed and superior knowledge of products and (importantly) the differences between them. I had also overlooked the possibility that they can indeed compete on price too. All this with the convenience of touching and taking the chosen product away in ‘real time’; I had almost forgotten how shopping used to be. You can guess I shop predominantly online; I now question my habit.
The staff could not have been more helpful, informative and price conscious. No pressure sales, we walked out had a think, considered options and on return having made our decision based on product, ease of transaction, and service we then received a discount. I have rarely found such salesmanship outside of the US and certainly never in the UK: Perfect in every detail. I will never buy a bag from anyone else. 🙂

Ricky 26 January 2018

US Samsonite Key Found!

I lost the keys to a locked US Samsonite suitcase and Bagcraft found the exact key for me. Friendly and helpful, plus a very competitive price. Thanks!

AlanC 05 January 2018

Fantastic quality

Fantastic quality trifold travel/ID card wallet.
I’ve looked all over for one of these wallets as a gift and I was not disappointed.
I was so thrilled that I even had to email the store to say thank you.

Jane Kennedy  04 December 2017

I picked up the replacement Mickey Mouse case yesterday and my son is over the moon with it! It’s his birthday today so it’s even better to get his lovely new case then.

Thank you so much for organising it. You provide a fantastic service and it’s very much appreciated.

Heartfelt thanks once again,

Julie Gentle, Hockley, November, 2017.


My Troop bag has arrived and its perfect, thank you.

Marjorie McCreadie, Hawick. August 2017.

Extremely helpful and practical advice, obviously a business with a wealth of experience in their trade. Delighted with the quality of the Trolley Case and Holdall purchased and at a fair price

Jeremy Steeden, Kent, July 2017.

I meant to contact you sooner to say how impressed I was with the delivery. A ring at the bell at 8.30pm Sunday night and there on the doorstep was a very wet man with my parcel. He said he had tried earlier when we were out, so had come back later to make sure we got it. Fantastic service as I was not expecting delivery until some time this week.

Thank you

Shirley Knowles, London. February 17.

I just wanted to thank you very much for your brilliant attention and service. I received my purse – I love it – exactly as you described it and a really good price.
Many thanks and I will highly recommend you .

Thank you, once again.

Thank you so much for the flawless service that you provided me. Everything was absolutely perfect! I will for sure talk about Bagcraft to any friend of mine who is looking for a new bag.

Have a good day!


Oriane Georgeac , London , July 16.

Just a quick email to say thank you for the great all-round service you provided last week and it was a pleasure dealing with you.

The case is great and I was even surprisingly under my weight limit when at the airport, helped by how light this case is! I am annoying my wife by saying how much I love it!

Thanks again.
Martin Joseph , London , June 16.

I wish to thank your company for the exceptional service I received ordering my blue Secrid.

Thank you.
Victoria Wells, London, May 16

Your delivery man just dropped off the bag and I’m thrilled with it. Thank you once more going so far out of your way on a Sunday to make this happen – hands down excellent service that is hard to outdo.

Have a great Sunday

Jordan Ryda, London . March 16

The bag arrived today and I’m relieved to say that my wife was delighted with it.
I thought I’d got it wrong but it turned out to be exactly what she wanted.
As someone passionate about customer service I will have no hesitation in recommending you.
Thank you for the effort you put into the order; so glad it worked out ok.

Graham Martin, Sutton Coldfield. Feb16

The wallet arrived safely today and it’s lovely – very pleased, as ever! The recipient will be delighted when he gets it next week.
Thanks for your help,
Best wishes
Karen Gibbs (Penarth , January, 2016)

I tried all over the UK to purchase a special handbag and purse for my wife but found none available.

On speaking to the store on Friday, Gary told me he would see what he could do to help.

Gary called me Tuesday to say the goods were in stock and would be dispatched that day.

Handbag and purse were delivered Wednesday. That is fantastic customer service.

Special thanks to Gary for going the extra mile.

Kind regards
Martin Brightmore, Derbyshire . December 2015.

just wanted to let you know I received my lovely bag at the weekend. It was carefully packed with an enclosed note apologizing for the delay. Some things are worth waiting for!
You have been an excellent firm to deal with – many thanks.
Val Roberts , Boston, November, 2015

Just to say thank you very much for the lovely bags – a very efficient delivery!
Karen Gibbs , Penarth, October, 2015

Happy to accept your proposed replacement, a nice gesture.
Thanks & regards
Sally , London September 2015

This wasn’t the easiest of purchases, Bagcraft didn’t have the bag I purchased in the colour I wanted, but Gary telephoned me, yes telephoned me ! to apologise and suggested a couple of options, I actually purchased the same bag in the colour I wanted but without the extra pockets and zips on the outside of the bag, which made the purchase cheaper, and to be honest, was exactly what I was looking for (I don’t need those extra pockets).
Then there was a delivery problem, the courier company sent me two delivery reference numbers, cancelled one, and the other reference number was never collected, one call to Gary at Bagcraft and the bag was delivered the very next morning.
Bagcraft UK Ltd, your customer service is fantastic. All UK companies should learn from your example, then perhaps we could put the Great back into Britain.

Lindsey Smith
, ST. LEONARDS-ON-SEA, August, 2015

Thank you so much for all the effort you have put into sort my mistake it is greatly appreciated.

Very best wishes,

Thank you so much for your kind attention. My handbag arrived this morning
at 10.44 (I had been informed that it would arrive between 10.44 and
11.44!). I am delighted with it. I have dealt with several firms over the
internet but have never before had the personal attention I received from
you. Although it is unlikely that I will be buying another handbag in the
near future I will certainly be recommending you to my friends. It was a
pleasure to do business with you.

Ann S , Devon , November 12

Delighted with that bag, Gary…….thanks.

I know it wasn’t exactly the order of the century, but I wanted to thank you for the thoroughly professional and courteous way you acted. Good service is an increasing rarity these days, in my experience anyway and it was very pleasant to deal with someone bucking that trend.

Good luck with your business going forward.

Thanks again and regards

Chris S (Billericay, Oct 12)

Hi folks, I received the key to the case that I requested. It works fine and I want to “Thank you very much” for your help. It is refreshing to deal with a company that can actually do something correctly the first time. “with God, all things are possible”; with men, not so much!

Allen T (Iowa) Feb 2012

I will definitely recommend your site to my friends

Wendy S (Kent) JAN 2012

Like the fact that you seem like a company run by human beings and not just a web shop. {And that you are cheaper than Amazon on this occasion!

Will shop with you again!

Caroline (London) NOV 11

I wanted to write & say thanks for the key you sent me, it arrived next day and works perfectly. The serviced I received was great and i’d definitely use you again.

I was worried as my Samsonite bag is nearly 20 years old and I didnt think id be able to get one so cheaply or quickly.

Thanks again!

The bag arrived this morning-exactly as you told me it would, and its gorgeous! I can’t tell you how pleased I am. I’ve given up on this bag a while ago and now I have it ! Great!

And your service was just fabulous. In the first place to recieve a reply to my oh-so-random question showed how much you care about customers. And then you made the effort to find this little gem even when the manufactuer said it doesn’t exist. Good job !

Thanks again !
Kristina (Harrow)
