 WHITE LEATHER - Chic, classic and clean - beautifully smooth but with a substantial finish. Not the lowest maintenance but worth the effort. A firm leather creating a great structured bag.
PALE GREY LEATHER - A perfect cool neutral leather - in some lights it looks almost icy blue. Buttery soft this is make for a more malleable finish and a softer bag.
MID GREY LEATHER - The perfect middle ground leather in both colour and substance. It's grain gives it a lightly textured and resilient finish. Neither very firm or very soft creating the ultimate easy care bag.
CHARCOAL SUEDE - Tactile and matt and wonderful, this charcoal suede is sumptuous. The dark hue makes this a practical suede, though it will require some maintenance such as an appropriate spray. Super soft, this makes for a malleable soft finish bag.
CHARCOAL LEATHER - A wonderful and intriguing alternative to black. A sophisticated super smooth and firm leather for a structured finish bag. 
BLACK LEATHER - The ultimate classic in a super sophisticated smooth and sheeny leather, with a firm substance for a structured bag. 
OFF WHITE HAIR ON HIDE - Somewhere between white and cream this off white hair on hide is a glorious wintery touch of luxury. The leather is thick but malleable which results in a substantial and incredibly stroke-able finished bag.

BLACK HAIR ON HIDE -  Rich, dark, and glossy, this is the ultimate luxury. The leather is thick but also pliable which gives a substantial and sophisticated finished bag.

SPOT HAIR ON HIDE - Like having your very own portable dalmatian! Fun but really sharp, this monochrome spot hair hide is so soft to the touch, but also a great weight resulting in a substantial finished bag.

 Linings

All of our linings suedes are bonded to the body of our bags. This means that your bag is long wearing and substantial, and the lining is an integral part of the design in every sense.
Go for our bespoke service and you can mix, match or contrast. There are no black linings here!

Metal work

Inspired by jewellery, our metal work details are clean and sleek. Whether it's chain, D rings or our signature toggle, we believe it's the small details that make all the difference.

All of our metal work is brass based, but you can choose from the following finishes -

GOLD - plated in real gold for a hard wearing, beautiful, rich shine, which won't fade, discolour or tarnish.

SILVER - plated in nickel for a silver tone finish. We have found nickel to be much harder wearing than silver and maintains a high shine, tarnish free.

ROSE GOLD/COPPER - new for AW16, we now offer a copper plated finish. Each piece is coated with a very strong lacquer, preventing tarnishing and discolouration. This warm and unusual choice.

Straps

All our straps are bridle leather, which means they are hard wearing, and wont stretch. With our bespoke service you can choose from white or black, to either compliment or contrast, and we will match the stitching colour of your bag to your strap.
