Bags of Joy
Why compromise on style or functionality when you can have both? Sarah Haran handbags are designed to fill you with joy, due to the wonderfully unique style concept that makes our bags different to the rest! Our bags can be styled for your every occasion and you really will wonder how you ever coped before...
The first handbag designer to create an incredibly unique style concept, Sarah Haran is renowned for her creativity, craftsmanship and for bringing joy to her customers through her luxury handbags and accessories.
After 18 years of being immersed in the world of technology, Sarah had her lightbulb moment when she realised there wasn't a high quality handbag available that could take you from day to night with ease, offering both style and functionality. Sarah decided to make her own and what started as hobby, developed into a business opportunity when Sarah took the leap of faith to grow the brand and spread joy!
The Evolution of our Handbags
The Dahlia 2-in-1 Tote was Sarah's first born bag, and to this day it continues to be our bestseller. The magic of the Dahlia, that makes it the crème de la crème of handbags, is that the front Ivy pouch is interchangeable, as is the tassel and handbag strap! This means you can create a multitude of different looks with 2 bags in 1 - use the Ivy as an evening clutch, carry on your shoulder or wear crossbody.
But the fun doesn't stop there! Sarah cleverly took this concept across a whole host of different styles, thoughtfully adding pieces to the range that adds value to our customers lives, creating the Sarah Haran lifestyle. Our range now includes an overnight bag, a satchel, a backpack, a camera bag, several tote bags, mini bags and clutches, all boasting the same brilliant style concept. Our ongoing commitment to bringing our customers joy, one handbag at a time, is the motto that we live by!
Our infamous Bags of Joy Club
Our Bags of Joy Club was born in April 2020 when the world locked down as the pandemic hit. What started as a simple way to add a little joy to our customers lives during more difficult times, transpired into a wonderful community bursting with likeminded, and supportive women, sharing a love of individual style and incredible handbags.
Now with over 2500 members, our club continues to flourish and joy continues to spread. We've created wonderful memories through our legendary Zoom parties (with celebrity guests, might we add!), various customer meet ups across the country, competitions, themes & stories, and getting our customers involved in our product development.
Since starting her own brand in 2018 with two freelancers, Sarah has now grown her team with likeminded staff who are as devoted as she is to bringing joy to our customers, coupled with exceptional customer service.
A passionate advocate of high quality goods, Sarah is currently taking part in the Brands of Tomorrow programme run by Walpole, the official sector body for UK luxury. A supporter of other British entrepreneurs, Sarah has teamed up with several brands to support and collaborate with, such as S'Wheat, Lily Blanche and Manta. Having launched her first Style Guide in 2019, Sarah has also been featured in several major publications such as The Times, Stylist, Good Housekeeping, The Guardian and Marie Claire.
Preferring family-run businesses rather than big, faceless factories, Sarah personally travelled round Europe to find partners that fully appreciated the value she wanted to bring to her designs. We now work with a small Atelier in Istanbul and one in Manchester, with over 100 years combined experience of handbag production.
The high-quality full-grain leather we use for our handbags is strong, soft and durable, from a tannery that has received a Gold LWG Award recognising it’s ethical practices. It is a member of the Leather Working Group, an organisation developing environmental stewardship practices for the leather industry.
