Cuero handbags reflect fifteen years of development and hold to its principles of uniqueness, durability and practicality. The maker Caroline Marr is responsible for all stages of each bag’s creation from design, through cutting and sewing, to finishing and this personal commitment to quality is evident in the final product. The bags are sold through selected craft fairs, the internet and from Cuero’s workshop at the Craft Courtyard, Harestanes Visitor Centre, Ancrum (off the A68 3mls. north of Jedburgh). Caroline’s background includes art school, fashion design college and buying for a leading design outlet, this awareness allied to a well judged ability to select fine butter-soft leathers, fittings and decorative tapestries, silks and ornamentation, combine to produce highly desirable and exclusive accessories.
The commitment to customer satisfaction is the key to Cuero’s success and a potential buyer can select from not only the broad range of designs and finishes “off the shelf” but can have an input at every stage of a commission. Cuero’s website and e-mail facilities allow for dialogue and feedback and help to influence the development of new products. In the past Cuero handbags have included salmonskin, original Paisley material and rich Belgian tapestries in their design and construction and new materials are constantly tried and tested.
