Adding a contemporary slant to a classic saddle bag shape, the simple lines and chunky stitch combine to create an elegant day wear accessory.
Creating the designs and selecting the leathers went hand in hand when this collection was crafted, the stunning vegetable tanned shades are a feature in themselves. We wished to create a bag which respected and showcased these leathers while still being practical and versatile. Resulting in a stunning limited range that blends form & functionality.
The classic dark brown of this piece adds a warm rich presentation to its sleek and balanced design.
Handmade in our small London workshop, everything on our Belle bags has been designed for balance. The raw edge along the back for a flat profile contrasts with the curved front edge, the double hemmed front frames the bold solid brass ring which states without overstating.
Wanting to offset form with functionality, the details are sparse yet considered, the raw edge flap centred by the curved leather tab and 2 & a half inch solid ring. The clean rectangular line of stitching attaching the internal pocket, highlighting the blind embossed logo.
The solid brass ring adds weight to the flap, maintaining the line and shape whilst providing both an ease of access and a security.
The body of the bag measures approximately 21 cm by 25 cm, with a depth of 7 cm, the flap is fastened with a magnetic closure.
The internal zip pocket creates a compartment for smaller valuables, separate from the internal body of the bag, which exposes the soft underside of the leather. Measuring approximately 20 x 14 cm, it is flush with the body of the bag.
The robust and simple leather strap is 20 cm wide and the silver finished buckle allows the strap to be adjusted from 117 to 129 cm. While being securely riveted to the side with solid d-rings and leather tabs for flexibility.

We do our best to ensure the colours look as true as possible, however please remember that monitor colour settings can vary.
The leather we choose is vegetable tanned, which means it is produced in the most natural way possible. This beautifully preserves the organic past life of the material, highlighting the natural grain and texture, as well as the occasional growth marks or surface imperfections.
