(E33) Leather Bucket Bag Carrier Style handmade in UK by me....calf leather
This bucket bag is made from a lovely Grade 1 soft chestnut calf leather which as with high end bags shows much of the grain of the hide in its natural state. It comes from a famous company in Somerset that has a long heritage of supplying top quality leathers, and even supplied gloves to Spitfire pilots! This particular leather will become more beautiful and interesting with age, and acquire a unique character all its own. This bucket bag looks classic and classy and is lovely quality. It has an interior zipped pocket for valuables, and a long strap clip for securing keys, or even for securing this bag to a table leg etc while in a restaurant. Its is unlined and shows the natural beauty of the hide. Some parts of the hide will look smoother than others, as is the case with high quality natural leathers which show the true grain of the animals hide. This bag is understated quality, and the design is simple, but traditional. The bridal leather handles are secured with hand hammered traditional pure copper saddlers rivets. Few people use the traditional copper rivets as they are expensive and take skill to apply, but they look great and are incredibly strong. All the main seams on this bag are tapered and double sewn for strength. Measurements: 11" high, 10" wide at base and depth 6" at base. The loop handle is carrier style...with approximately 16 inches of strap above the rim of the bag. I send my bags out securely packaged and tissue wrapped for UK customers by UK Royal Mail Signed For, and for International customers by insured, and tracked and or signed for services.
