What makes Deni-Deni stand out against other UK-based leather goods manufacturers is the kind, informative way Denise guides and supports you through each manufacturing process step. She is always happy to share her wealth of knowledge, the quality of her work is second to none, and I'm thrilled with everything Denise and her team have created for my company. Her work is outstanding, and I recommend Deni-Deni wholeheartedly!
Ella Peters, Founder
Skylos Collective
I started working with Denise and her Team some time ago to develop my first collection of handbags and honestly I couldn't be happier. I really do believe that customer service is just as important as delivering an excellent product and Denise excels in both. Starting a business is daunting and having a manufacturer who is so reliable, personable and knowledgeable is truly a godsend. Denise interacts so closely with me throughout the whole process of making a handbag which makes it all such an easy and enjoyable procedure. Finally she delivers a beautifully crafted product which easily rivals and in most cases outshines the major luxury brands. I genuinely couldn't recommend Deni-Deni highly enough, her company really is a rose amongst the thorns!

Working with Denise and her Team has been a really amazing experience and taught me so much about handbag crafting and the industry as a whole. Denise has helped me to transform my ideas into reality, offering me her expertise and guidance along the way. As I've never done anything like this before the process was quite daunting to begin with, but Denise explained it all to me and was very honest with her feedback if something wasn't quite right. Her communication and attention to detail is incredible! I was passed her details from someone in the industry who quoted "you need to speak to Denise as she is the best bag maker in the country". I can now second that! Thank you for holding my hand and for turning my terrible sketches into the stunning handbag that I always wanted!
Anna Hartley
I have no hesitation in recommending Deni-Deni to everyone who admires my beautiful bespoke handbag. Denise asked all the right questions to ensure the design was right for me. I have numerous luxury designer bags but rarely use any as I struggle for one that is the right size and shape for my height. Denise sourced the perfect colour leather and suggested a gorgeous soft leather interior. My finished handbag is beautiful and I had a wonderful surprise when I found a matching compact mirror, diary and iPad sleeve wrapped inside. Denise and her family are all so clever and I cannot thank them enough. What they have made for me could not have been better and I will treasure them all very much. Their workmanship and customer care is wonderful and I'm sure this company shall go from strength to strength, I will certainly be following their journey.
Mary Brennan
Denise made me a Flight Bag in brown Nubuck, lined in orange leather. We started off with pretty much a blank canvas other than the general size and shape of a flight bag. All the design decisions were thought out and explained and adjusted if I wasn't happy with them. Gradually and with me provided with feedback and photos throughout, the finished product emerged. Beautiful and impeccably crafted.
Stuart Rathmell
We are so pleased with Deni-Deni's work. We ordered a custom leather mirror for over a fireplace. She sourced the exact right leather and helped us pick the right size. When that was done, she crafted placemats, coasters and a vide-poche of the same meticulous quality. As she shared pictures of the manufacturing process it was fun to see the whole thing come together in real-time. No hesitation to recommend.
Oscar van den Berg
We continually work with Deni-Deni and find them to be always professional and helpful, they also advised us in designing our bags. Their work is very high quality with exacting standards. The Team are committed and we trust them implicitly, everything is exactly on time with never a reason to worry. A big thank you to Team Deni-Deni.

TOPSHOP UNIQUE have worked with Deni-Deni on the past 12 collections and it is always an absolute pleasure to work with such a friendly, highly talented and skilled team. Our relationship and working pattern has really developed over the past few seasons, making each season that little bit easier to get the finish line with few complications. They work in a highly organised and professional manner and attention to detail is always on point. We initially spend lots of time working together on the perfect toile's that usually involves a lot of problem solving and they are always offering solutions to obstacles along the way. Communication is also a strong asset of the Team and I find that speaking on a regular basis is important especially as the show date approaches to make sure every detail is perfect. The Team are always up for a challenge no matter what we throw at them, and the final result is always outstanding! The Team are also extremely hard working and go to great lengths to ensure our show samples are always finished in good time for the show. It won't be long before we pick up again with the next collection which I am very excited about!
Claire Uzan, Established Designer
Top Shop Unique
What's amazing about working with someone like Denise is her expertise and knowledge. With her expert craftsmanship and attention to detail, Denise is able to make my seed of an idea come alive, into a beautifully hand crafted show piece which then follows through to production.
It is a real pleasure for me to have a UK based factory that gives me first rate attention and delivers on time every time, despite sometimes against all the odds.
From a design perspective, it is so helpful for me to be continually learning from her breadth of experience on the technical side.
Over the years we have developed a very close working relationship and I am so grateful for all the hard work Denise and her Team have put in.
Tara Grant, Design Manager
Top Shop Unique
The surprise and delight at receiving the Gift of Bespoke as a birthday present (which in itself is beautifully presented) was only the start. What a wonderful journey, guided at each step by Denise who listened patiently to my ramblings and turned an idea into reality. Denise's idea of a wrap-over removable clasp which can be interchanged with a different clasp gives me, or rather my husband, endless possibilities for future presents! It will be unique each time. The care and attention Denise showed in designing and crafting the bag was an absolute pleasure to follow throughout. I am now the proud owner of a beautiful, unique evening bag surpassing the brief and something I will cherish for a very long time. Thank you Denise!
Ethnie Conner
I have been working closely with Deni-Deni for some years now. I contacted them initially, to develop some leather goods to coincide with other articles that I offer for sale and in hope that they could design a product with my interests in mind. The Team is extremely talented, with the finished article surpassing my (quite annoyingly high) expectations. They really did do an amazing job, and always communicated frequently to ensure everything was per my requirements. As a result of the success of the initial product, I have since returned to the Team to develop a further 3 products, again, which are of the highest of quality.

I recently received the travel pouch that I designed and had made from the Team at Deni Deni, their work is stunning I couldn't be happier. As it was intended as a gift I may have to get another made! The whole Team are an absolute pleasure to work with, no question is too trivial. Exceptional from start to finish.
Stephen Wroe
Deni-Deni were first recommended to me by Adam from Cherchbi, clearly for good reason. I have worked on several projects with Deni-Deni and the bespoke service offered is truly excellent. The craftsmanship, attention to detail and quality products they produce are second to none. Moreover with a friendly, and courteous approach, Deni-Deni is a fine example of British Craftsmanship at its very best, based in the beautiful Rossendale valley.
Sven Morris – Product Designer
After visiting the Deni-Deni studio, I was blown away that such a unique business was on my doorstep. My Deni-Deni bespoke leather diary exceeded all expectations, so much so that I ordered 2 more diaries, 2 pairs of cashmere lined leather gloves and they're currently making me a leather box! It's great to see a small family business excelling in the luxury market and I will of course be recommending their services to anyone looking for beautiful things.
Mike Hampson
I had ordered 2 iPad sleeves from Deni-Deni as Christmas presents. From the beginning the experience was a pleasure. Hannah was incredibly communicative and ensured that the shipping from UK to myself in the USA was handled quickly to ensure Christmas delivery. The cases were superbly made with attention to every detail, safe to say the recipients were thrilled to get such a beautiful custom made gift. It's a pleasure to deal with people who love what they do.
Tim Marks
Just to say we are absolutely delighted with our full length bespoke mirror from Deni-Deni.
Not only is it functional but is a talking point. Deni-Deni fitted it for us in the hall and consequently everybody comments on the quality of the workmanship and design. It is of the highest quality even at the back which isn't really seen.
We would definitely recommend Deni-Deni for any timeless piece of British Made history. An item to pass down the generations.
Gail and Mark McGarry
I can't say enough good things about Denise and her Team. They are consistently efficient, helpful and organised. Denise has such a deep knowledge of what she does she is a fount of information and good advice that can always be relied on.
Grace Berrow
What an absolute pleasure it has been working with the Team at Deni-Deni. From the initial enquiry through to the beautiful end product, the Team were consummate professionals. The design process and craftsmanship were exemplary resulting in my bespoke handbag for a very special occasion. It was great to support local, British artist and 'craftsman' and I look forward to our next collaboration.
Lisa Holt
Denise has made the most exquisite bags for our customers. The finish is perfect and totally beautiful. She is charming to deal with, and absolutely reliable.

I met Denise and Aden at 'Best of Britannia' last summer and, taken by their passion, enthusiasm and obvious skill, immediately commissioned a wallet from them to a pattern for an old, loved and sadly shabby wallet which I have used for over a decade. It gave me the chance to make changes to the old wallet to make it even better and nothing was a problem for Denise or Aden to do. I had leather samples sent to the house, suggestions, discussions - both by email and telephone - and finally the wallet arrived, exquisitely- and robustly-made, exactly to the price we discussed.
The finished product is perfect and will now replace the old one completely. I cannot praise these fine British craftspeople highly enough.
Dauvit Alexander
On meeting Denise, you quickly realise she speaks the "language of bags". She understands how we feel about them, what we want from them and how we want to use them. Occasion, size and proportion, colour, fabric, fastening and embellishment are all important to her. No detail too small, nothing too much trouble. My first bag made by Denise was simply delightful!
When I realised I needed another special bag to complement my "Mother of the Bride" outfit, Denise was my "go to" person. She was tireless in sourcing the perfect match of fabric, the perfect match of embellishment. The design was stunning, and the artistry to the highest standard. The clutch bag was lined using one of my late mother's scarves.
Denise and Team, thank you so much for your dedication and skill, for your tireless search for perfection. Your bag surpassed my every expectation and is a true heirloom.
Susan Beilby
I have rarely met such fine 'couture standards' in design, products, management and communication skills… top end market workmanship and devoted reliability…
Tatiana Henderson-Stewart
Couture Milliner, London
Denise's service at Deni-Deni was exceptional; she kept me fully up to date with the making of my handbag. She invited me to choose from various designs; I knew of the different stages during the process of transforming my Grandmother's python skin into a beautiful bag. I was overly happy with the finished product, and I think that Denise is a brilliant craftsperson; therefore I would recommend her service to my friends and relatives.
Thank you so much
Winifred Spink
I worked with Deni-Deni over 2 years developing a product, and I found Denise and her Team's expert input and suggestions invaluable and the quality of the workmanship was of the highest standard. I would highly recommend working with Deni-Deni for anyone wanting high quality leather goods.
Hilary Blackburn
I'm in love with my Deni-Deni wash bag; it feels so good to have a unique one of a kind item. The craftsmanship is second to none, the quality, detailing and finishing is excellent and I'm totally into the fact that my wash bag was made in the UK. I can't wait for my next bag… I'm thinking; a travel bag for my wash bag…
Wade Taylor
I really wanted some bespoke (quite large) high-grade leather seating cushions made and was attracted to the look and feel of the Deni-Deni website information in comparison to their competitors. Even though it was probably not something that they would commonly be asked to do, Denise led me through the process of unique design / production / delivery before doing exactly what we had agreed at every stage on time and in budget. Deni-Deni were an absolute pleasure to deal with throughout, the end product is superb and I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Vik Hill
Exceptional workmanship takes patience and devotion but it's Deni-Deni's diverse ability and knowledge that really is unrivalled.
Beyond Bespoke
I have really enjoyed working with Denise & the rest of the Team at Deni-Deni for my project. Great communication, a friendly and professional service and always so welcoming and warm when I have visited. Thoroughly recommend.
