Sneak Preview: A New Design and More



This week in the studio was spent drafting new bag designs and revising some older styles. Pictured above is a new design made from Harris Tweed wool in a deep mustard and a golden brown combo. It's approximately 13.5" tall by 10" wide. It has an adjustable strap and looks equally great worn as a shoulder bag or a messenger. I'm really liking this modern yet classic look.


I also worked on revising the Semi-Circle Purse. I wanted to make it roomier and thought of adding darts  among other things.  I decided against those ideas as they seemed to change the look of the bag too much. I really like this unique shape so all I did was make it a little taller. And now it's a bit roomier but still has it's character shape. I also added an adjustable strap to make it more versatile. That idea was given to me by a very nice customer. And it looks awesome worn cross body!


Pictured above are Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchels that are still in progress. I should have most of these bags in my shop today or tomorrow. Wishing everyone a wonderful weekend. Enjoy!

I love the new, tall messenger, it is really stylish and the two-tone tweed makes it even more special!

I really love the golden, earthy tweeds in the first bag, but I am still a sucker for plaid. :)
