10 things you can say when someone inevitably compliments your new Sbri piece

10 things you can say when someone inevitably compliments your new Sbri piece

Our handcrafted leather accessories are designed to turn heads, with little pops of colour and eye-catching prints to add extra joy to the everyday. We don’t mean to toot our own horn too much, but our pieces are made to stand out from the crowd and we reckon they’re deserving of a compliment…or three.

Now, if you’re the kind of person who freezes up and doesn’t know how to respond when someone pays you a compliment (if you’ve ever awkwardly blurted “you too!” when someone wishes you a happy birthday, you’ll know what we’re talking about) then we are here to help. Here are 10 cool things you can say about Sbri to keep the conversation moving (and maybe convince someone new to join the Sbri club).

Read on for the full list and you can expect all future encounters to go a little like this:

Them: OMG I love your purse/keyring/bag!

You: Thanks, it’s from Sbri…

Charity Giving in 2021

Charity Giving in 2021

At Sbri Studio, leather accessories are our thing (handmade personalised leather accessories in fun colours and prints to be precise). But the reason they’re our thing is because they have the power to add joy to the everyday, to make each day feel brighter, even in the smallest way. Whether it’s the uplifting personalised message from your best friend that you see every time you open your purse or the bright pink leather bag that elevates even the dreariest office attire. We’re all about those little extras that make life that bit better, and for us that extends beyond just our product range, it’s about doing things for the people around us too.

Meet the Sbri Team

Meet the Sbri Team

Shopping at Sbri starts and ends in our studio in Ringwood on the UK’s south coast. From designing to dispatching, marketing to making, prepping to packaging, every single step of the process is completed in-house by our small team. We trial and test our own designs to make sure they’re spot on then make to order when you’re ready to buy, giving you a bespoke service that you won’t get anywhere else. That’s the joy of shopping with a small independent business like ours, it’s all done with a personal touch. Personalising is a big deal to us, after all. 

We’ve been here a while now so we thought it was about time we got to know each other a little better and introduce you to some of the smiley happy people behind your orders. We’ve asked them all the important questions: who they are, what they do at Sbri, their favourite Sbri product and their favourite biscuit. (See, we said they were important). 

So come on in, make yourself at home and say hello to the team behind Sbri.

How sustainable is leather?

How sustainable is leather?

At Sbri we put sustainability first. It’s always been a huge priority for us and it’s not something we’re willing to compromise on. We’re a leather accessories company that do things differently – from the vegetable tanned leather we use, to the way our products are made and packaged, and the energy used to power our studio.

All our leather is sustainably sourced in the UK and our personalised accessories are made to order in our studio to avoid overproduction and minimise our carbon footprint. But is this the case for the whole leather goods industry? Absolutely not.

One Year of Sbri

One Year of Sbri
Last week marked one year since the launch of Sbri and the first ever order placed on our website (a “Piper” Coin Purse, in case you were wondering, an excellent choice). As you may know, our personalised leather accessories started off as part of our sister website, Create Gift Love, but at the start of February 2020 we launched their new home here, Sbri – and what a year it’s been since!
