We are so excited at Heart Gallery to be working with Brit-Stitch through the A/W season 2015 and beyond.
Brit-Stitch make beautiful leather bags right here in the UK. From pretty pastels to classic colours and the chance to make your own, you’re sure to find something you love.
It was back in 1967 when master craftsman Peter Jones made a leather cash bag for his local milkman, Toby. In 2012, Toby brought his bag back for a replacement strap. With 45 years of history in their hands, they decided it was time to give the vintage bag a thoroughly modern makeover, using the traditional skills they are so proud of.
The Brit-Stitch love affair with leather goes back a long way, but the whole team at Brit-Stitch are bringing it to a new generation of style lovers and vintage coveters. They use skills passed down to them to make bags that match heritage with high fashion – there’s even a pocket for your iPhone.
Brit-Stitch bags are lovingly made in Britain, using the finest leathers in a rainbow of colours from this season’s mint green to classic tan brown. Thier clever team make sure every single bag is perfect – seamless stitching, beautiful buckles and a clasp that you’ll keep clicking (really, it’s quite addictive). And yes, they smell divine.
As you now know the Brit-Stitch story started with a milkman, and it’s that history they remember every day. Bags come in a range of sizes – one to suit you, whether you’re lugging around a laptop or just a lipstick. Staying true to tradition is what makes Brit-Stitch different, and it helps them create bags customers adore.
The Brit-Stitch story started off with the founder of the company’s heritage but now his children have come along and they run the company; Toby had the idea of the sister brand Brit-Stitch. Bek brings the fashion background as well as running a seamless production team. Bek also helps with design, social media and customer relations and is a joy to work with.
There’s a huge wealth of skill in the Brit-Stitch factory, where their HQ is based, and their very skilled machinists create the most amazing pieces for us all to enjoy.
We are stocking a great selection of Brit-Stitch bags and accessories but have leather swatches too so you can choose your own colour or even a colour combination. We know not everyone’s the same and Brit-Stitch bags are made for individuals so we can offer a customisation service – create your bag, your way.
