Ive been sewing as long as I can remember. I like to create things I like and use myself.

Unlike some products my items are all handmade, designed and made by me in my own workshop...although I mostly use hand drafted patterns, no two are ever the same colour or trim. I do not outsource my sewing to India/China as some of the "big name" Harris Tweed bag producers do, while trying to sell you their Scottishness. My prices are based on the cost of raw materials so sometimes bags in the same pattern vary slightly in price.

I mix traditional tweeds from the UK & Ireland, mostly Harris Tweed and Donegal Tweed although I also use Tweed sourced in Yorkshire, Scotland, Isle of Man & Wales and recently I've been buying Donegal woven Merino wool fabric too, with bright, modern, contemporary or quirky vintage, fabric linings, which are usually, but not always, 100% cotton.

I keep my margins low, buying direct from weavers where possible. I'm not looking to make millions so I don't scrimp on materials, always using a generous seam allowance double sewn. Most of my fittings are metal and sourced in the UK where possible.

Patterns are hand drafted by me. Most of my down time I spend motorcycling in the Scottish Highlands and visiting my grandchildren in Inverness so patterns are named for some of my favourite places. Bags without names are completely one of a kind designs.

I use 4 of my own bags. One, which is now over 5 years old and used daily, is wearing very well. The colours are still good and there's no issues with stitching, zips or fittings.

Mr B does quality control on all products.... He knows little about sewing but he notices missed stitches or crooked seams, so I am satisfied when it goes in the post to the customer it is the best it can be.

Nothing is wasted. Scraps go into a large container to be donated locally for art projects.
