TWEED AND PLAID HANDBAGS
AND SHOPPING BAGS
THE SCOTTISH BORDERS.
Jeanie Bags are handmade in the Scottish Borders from high quality British tweed, tartan and other fabrics including limited edition Harris Tweeds. Trims and fastenings are sourced from the highest quality suppliers. Each handbag is a carefully crafted original that combines beautiful looks with robust workmanship and materials, in an investment piece that will take you anywhere.
Lucy has a special flair for colour, and loves seeking out gorgeous tartans and tweeds direct from the same Scottish and Yorkshire mills that supply Vivienne Westwood, Chanel and many other leading designers. She especially likes working with traditional fabrics with a modern twist that are practical for daytime and elegant enough for evening. These can be combined with faux suede accents in contrast shades for a bright pop of colour, or subtle complementary shades – it’s up to you!
A great handbag isn’t just beautiful – it has a job to do! We use sturdy buckles, zips and fasteners, tough cotton canvas lining, and brass studs on the bottom of bags for extra toughness. Our tweeds and plaids are the same 100% wool that keeps sheep warm and rainproof on the wild Scottish hills, so you can bet they’re hardwearing! If it gets wet or marked, just sponge gently and hang up to dry naturally.
You won’t find Jeanie Bags on the high street – they’re individually made to order, and completely unique to you. We offer six styles and a gorgeous range of fabrics sourced from British mills, with washable faux suede trims. We love discovering exciting new fabrics and keeping up with trends, so our range is always evolving. We also make bespoke commissions on request – great if you need a real statement handbag to match your outfit for a special occasion.
Not just in looks, but also in clever details: hidden zipped key or phone pocket, generous zipped purse pocket, magnetic closures, brass stud feet, beech wood and leather handles, practical sizing for laptop, iPad, shopping, the office or an elegant night out. Our bags may be beautiful, but they also have brains!
