Spencer & Rutherford is mindful of acting responsibly and sustainably in the design and creation of our handbags. This is reflected in our philosophy of high quality handbags, wallets and accessories, to be forever treasured and passed on through generations.
Each exquisite Spencer & Rutherford piece is produced in strictly limited numbers to meet demand, whilst maintaining exclusivity and minimising wastage.
In a world where many artisan skills have been lost, we’re proud to collaborate with small, artisan workshops to create our unique products. Our intricate handbags and wallets are handmade by skilled craftspeople who have worked together for decades. We value our role in helping time-honoured crafts continue to flourish.
Our ‘forever treasured’ philosophy informs the exceptional quality and durability of the fabrics and trims we source from reputable high-end fabric houses, including luxurious natural linens, silks and velvets. Genuine premium leather comes from a small Italian atelier, and where possible vegetable dyes are used to create beautiful hues unique to Spencer & Rutherford.
In line with our ‘forever’ thinking, we offer an expert repair service. Customers are encouraged to contact us if a favourite handbag ever needs a little love to bring her back to her best.
We hope you will love and treasure your Spencer & Rutherford heirloom as much as we have loved creating her for you!
