category: Fashion Accessories   

region: North West   

Individually hand cut leather items lovingly sewn by Suzanne from her home studio and studio 9 at Manchester’s Craft and Design Centre. After completing a degree in Embroidery in Manchester, Suzanne continued to explore her love of traditional embroidery techniques such as straight stitching, French knots, appliqué and buttonhole designs which she uses to enhance the simple shapes she creates for her leather bags and accessories. Although each product is designed to be reproduced each product is individual and no two are exactly the same.

Suzanne is influenced by simple shapes and colour combinations which can be found from objects all around us. She strives to make functional, loveable items from leather and other natural materials, examples of her work can be found on her website which is constantly updated with new work. To commission something from Suzanne please contact her through her website.

Dr Bean’s Bags

category: Fashion Accessories   

region: South East   

Dr Bean’s Bags are designed and made on the Isle of Wight. The Island is a creative environment and the seaside location was the inspiration for the initial concept; a simple yet strong bag that reflected a nautical situation. Use of natural fabrics, such as canvas and ticking, jute rope for handles epitomise the Classic Yachting heritage of Cowes. An eyelet and shackle add a pleasing finishing touch and each bag is individually numbered, much like a sail.

Our bags incorporate recognised phrases, poems and text, with stitched detail and appliqué. We like to celebrate the eccentricities of English life, which probably explains that the most popular style of bag features an extract from the daily ‘Shipping Forecast’.

In the world of Dr Bean, the forecast is always sunny – and can be made especially for the area you request.
