The Samantha Range – a stylish collection of handbags designed by actress, presenter and disability campaigner Samantha Renke.
Created and designed by Samantha, these beautiful bags perfectly balance both style and functionality, with each bag boasting a whole plethora of useful design features that, although created with disabled people in mind, will benefit everyone in terms of daily practicality and promoting your personal panache!
Being a self-proclaimed fashionista, Samantha knows how important combining practicality with style is – and her range of handbags are anything but utilitarian in aesthetic.
Available in a wide-ranging palette of colours and finishes, there is a bag to suit every taste, season and event – from a contemporary Rose Gold finish for nights-out to traditional black for work, and even a striking Mustard colour for the weekend.
Much like Samantha herself, this fab bag isn’t just good looks – and what is inside definitely counts! Created with everyone in mind, the accessible and inclusive features built-in to each bag are designed to make everyday life easier and more organised.
Each Samantha bag includes a matching Clutch bag, which can slip neatly into one of the internal pockets making it easy to access at all times. The interior lining of the Samantha Renke range of bags is a high-contrast turquoise or cream in colour, ensuring it is much easier to find items that might otherwise get lost in the dark, depths of your handbag.
The zip-pulls have been made from fabric and are large enough to be grasped easily by those with dexterity issues, and included with each bag is a long shoulder strap with mobility clips, which can also be doubled as a wheelchair storage strap. The Sam Renke bag features D-clips on either end of the bag, which allows you to quickly and easily convert your bag from shoulder/handbag style to a cross-chest messenger bag or can be hung upon the handles of your wheelchair or mobility scooter.
Internally the Samantha bag boasts a number of organisational features that help you manage and access your items with speed and ease – each bag has a built-in insulated bottle holder which not only keeps your water or coffee upright, but also perfectly accessible at all times. An elasticated keychain attached to the bag means you will always know where your keys are, and totally removes the possibility of accidentally dropping them or them ever being out-of-reach.
Other internal features include a designated pen holder and mobile phone pocket, and also a discreet zip-pocket to one side, which is large enough to store any intimate or sensitive items that are essential but you don’t want on display inside your bag.
To top-off all these exceptional, creative features built-in to the Samantha Range, each bag is made from a super soft, faux-leather fabric that is of the highest quality, whilst also being totally Vegan-friendly!
