Hello lovely people!
Thank you so much for all your comments on the new look website! So far, so good. Give or take a few little tweaks I really couldn't be happier. Now I want to talk about something that is available on the new website that I am so pleased to finally be able to offer online ( just in case I haven't raved about it enough already !)
Create Your Own Handbag ...and other goodies!
Since very early doors I have had customers ask to switch up a product lining, change to a different leather in the range or simply swap from silver to gold hard ware in a product. We have always happily customised any of our products which has been largely thanks to our made to order business setup and the important fact that we manufacture totally in the UK. However it is not something I had easily setup on the website and was an area I was keen to change within RedMeg. I work on so many custom and bespoke commissions yet there was no where for customers to easily sit and select these options online. So that's where our new feature comes in...
So what is it all about?
We have identified the key areas that you guys ask time and time again if we can switch up for a product : Leather, Lining and hardware. Our new 'create your own' feature allows you to really easily select what RedMeg product you want to customise, what leather you want it made in, what lining you want us to use and what colour hard ware you want. So you can order our products to your specifications making it unique to you! Select your choices on the relevant design and order ... simple!
Can you send me some samples?
Another important question we get asked is about samples. We send out samples of leather and lining to help you to visualise the final idea as well as get a real feel for the materials. After all they are so tactile and hugely important to each design. It's also really handy if you are trying to colour match to an outfit, or shoes etc! To order samples for a 'create your own' product add the sample option and leathers directly into your basket. There are step by step instructions in the sample pack option if you get stuck. You can also easily order samples for a product we already have online. Each handbag has in the product description the specific leathers and linings that it is made in so you can easily order the correct samples. For a sample pack and for the postage you will be charged a total of £3. Unfortunately as a small business it is becoming increasingly difficult to send out the amount of samples we currently do for free. However the samples will arrive with a redeemable code that can be used against your purchase if you order within a month so you don't actually pay any extra!
We hope you find our new feature easy to navigate but of course if you have any trouble then do drop us an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will happily be of help. Initially we have had to launch a selective range but we will be adding more products very soon! We will also add new leathers and linings throughout the seasons so there will always be lots to choose from and more designs will be added as i develop our ranges.
