My name is Katie and I am the creator behind Cheeky Leopard, a company that produces high quality clutch bags and purses made from fabrics collected on my travels.
I am a proffessional textile designer and have always had a passion for fabrics, colour and print, inspired by my travels and the everyday art and design around me which I often pin on Pinterest and Instagram or write about on my blog.
Each item in my store has been hand made by me. I carefully choose the fabric for each bag from my extensive collection, machine sew them and then individually assemble them with care and attention. No item has been mass-produced.
I have lived in London, New York and Tokyo and love to travel. I often find fabrics on my travels and love to use them for creating my bags - ikats from the bazaars of Istanbul, kimono fabrics from the shrine sales of Tokyo and saris from the markets of Delhi. I love to take my time choosing the perfect fabric for my creations and this shows in the final product. You will not find it anywhere else!
Each item is gift wrapped in pink tissue paper and sent via free delivery.
You can shop online, or arrange to see the bags in person at my home studio in Twickenham, South West London. Please use the 'contact' option for any questions or to arrange an appointment.
