Finally, please do not hesitate to call us or email us with any questions you may have.


Make an enquiry

A vast range of STOW's luxury accessories can be transformed into a unique work of art. The first step in your bespoke journey is to send us an email informing us of: the product you would like to purchase and any initial design ideas you may have (nothing concrete is needed at the initial enquiry stage).

A member of our helpful customer service team will respond within 48 working hours to let you know if your idea is something that we can accommodate on your desired product. The only thing that we ask of you is that you let your imagination run free!


The journey begins

Once our team has confirmed that your design is possible on your chosen STOW piece, payment will be arranged before your bespoke journey begins. When payment has been made, our in-house artist will make your design come-to-life as an initial sketch. It is at this stage you can share your preferences on colour and positioning. Our artist will discuss and advise on your design via our friendly customer service team and only begin painting once you have confirmed that you are happy with the final sketch.



Patsy begins to paint. Her work is so meticulous that each piece can take up to 10 hours to create by slowly painting layer-upon-layer of colour onto our soft, luxurious leather. The leather is prepped to ensure an excellent base for the specialist leather paints that are used, and once completed, is sealed to ensure longevity and water resistance.



Once completed, your new bespoke commission will be shipped out to you with STOW's unrivalled care and attention in our beautiful bespoke tissue paper or a STOW-branded dust bag, recyclable packaging and via a carbon-neutral worldwide delivery service.

Your piece will arrive with you shortly after dispatch, ready for a lifetime of adventures.
