“I grew up in the Tweed valley in Scotland, you see, which is full of mills making the most beautiful estate tweeds. But I could never find things I liked that used these incredible wools – and especially not for a sensible price.

So I started making bags myself.”

“The picture shows my Kirsty handbag in Kirkton tweed (£89) and a Lou iPad mini sleeve in Lewis tweed (£35). I make plenty more too, including:

  • Handbags
  • Messenger bags
  • iPad sleeves
  • Washbags
  • Makeup bags
  • And plenty more…

I use the very best materials, like Scottish tweed, full-grain hand-dyed leather and British Millerain waxed cotton. I make them all at home on the Cheshire plains, and you can only buy them directly from me. Get in there quickly, though – people are starting to snap things up in my most popular tweeds!

Emma.”
