Celia Birtwell x Handbags for Hospices

Sussex-based charity Handbags for Hospices has teamed up with legendary designer Celia Birtwell and The Leather Satchel Company to create an exclusive handbag.

You’ll be able to buy the Gypsy Rose leather satchel on www.leathersatchel.com from March 5th, with a whopping 50% off the £190 sale price going directly to UK hospices. But be quick – there are only 100 made!

“We’re delighted that both Celia and The Leather Satchel Company wanted to be involved with our first ever handbag collection and we know the money and awareness raised will make a huge difference to UK hospice care,” says Abigail Bowen, founder of Handbags for Hospices.

Celia explains that by working with the Leather Satchel Company – “one of the last bastions of truly great British manufacturing” – they’re supporting two worthy causes: British hospices and British manufacturing.

She adds: “I am delighted to be involved with Handbags for Hospices because of the work and care that UK hospices provide people in their last days and weeks that can make a profound difference to the individual and their families.
