Bespoke Leather Goods, Handmade in Edinburgh.

What gives their bags their unique appeal and timeless look is our expertise in traditional saddlery techniques, fuelling the making of classic British cases and bags.

The leather we use is unique and distinctive because, over itme, it gains character from its wear, giving it a beautiful worn charm.

Handmade leather goods 

The company was founded on the Isle of Arran where it quickly grew. By 1990, a shop had been opened on Edinburgh’s picturesque Victoria Street.

In 2004, the Arran and Edinburgh businesses started to trade independently, and by 2011, the Edinburgh-based shop was bought Simon Harvey-Potts.

In 2002, he started working as an apprentice in time-honoured fashion, the end goal being to become a master of the trade and then the owner. He is absolutely passionate about his work and hand-producing bespoke leather goods and bags that are one of a kind and full of character.

Now firmly in the 21st century they feature new types of the very finest Italian and Spanish soft hide leathers. They also offer a range of new styles of bags and products as well as a broad selection of colours and the ability to personalise your bag and sporrans.
