Karin Obihara-Duru was originally a management consultant in Nigeria, Karin left home 6 years ago to pursue her dream and passion of designing and making leather accessories. After coming to the UK, Karin founded 'By Karin', which is a very high quality line of luxurious leather handbags. The bags are all designed in London, made in Italy and Spain from environmentally friendly vegetable tanned leather.
