Sarah Jane Williams creates custom crafted luggage, trunks and cases in incredibly unusual shapes and designs under the name Williams British Handmade. Made with elegant bridle leather and hand-forged metal work by Joe Macneil of Macneil Metalcraft, these bespoke pieces from Sarah Williams are both unusual and beautiful.
