Strathberry Bag


Strathberry Brand

Founded in 2013 by husband and wife Guy and Leeanne Hundleby, Strathberry is an Edinburgh based brand that specialises in leather luxury accessories. The name honours their Scottish roots, with Strath, meaning wide river valley in Scottish and the word berries inspired by traditional Scottish fabric and material dyes.

They started the brand after living in the mountain regions of Spain where they discovered leather craftsmanship that generations had perfected. Amazed by the attention to detail, they formed friendships with several artisans in the area and decided to create a luxury brand, that was refined, functional and accessible.

Where are Strathberry bags made?

All Strathberry bags are handcrafted in Spain, using only the very finest quality Spanish leathers and finishes.

Strathberry Styles

East/West Shoulder Bag 

The East/West Mini shoulder bag features a clean silhouette, with a compact, structured feel. Characterised by the label’s commitment to clean lines, the bag design is pulled together by the iconic bar across the front. The gold chain offers convenient over-the-shoulder wear, posing a striking contrast against the calf leather.

Lana Osette Bucket Bag

The Lana Osette bucket bag is Strathberry’s version of the trending bucket style. Crafted from buttery leather, its compact design is perfect for daily use. The drawstring closure with top handle and shoulder strap offer versatile wear which keeps it super cute and sleek with contrasting materials.

Nano Tote

Sporting the label’s signature, minimalist style the Nano Tote bag features a gold-tone signature bar closure as well as the curb chain strap. Carried by the dainty rolled top handles or removable strap, the bag can be worn across the body, over the shoulder, or held in the hand.

Crescent Shoulder

The Crescent shoulder bag balances a classic and contemporary style with a structured silhouette. With an envelope style fastening and different compartments to keep things organised this is a functional yet stylish option, with a wide strap and gold chain allowing versatile styling options.

How to clean your Strathberry handbags?

The brand prides itself on producing forever handbags, so to maintain and preserve your Strathberry bag here are the things to note. Try and avoid contact with water, oils, perfumes, and cosmetics. Don’t exposure your bags to prolonged sources of light and heat should also be avoided. If your product gets wet, remove any excess moisture by dabbing lightly with a soft dry cloth and dry at room temperature. If the metal hardware on your product becomes discoloured, use a dry jewellery cleaning cloth to remove any tarnishing.

Colour variations and markings can appear in the leather, these are naturally occurring features that add to the uniqueness of your Strathberry product and should not be thought of as imperfections. Due to the manufacturing process, the leathers may cause colour transfer, especially in humid environments. Something to bare in mind when wearing light colours. The brand recommends storing your product in a cool dry place when you are not using it in the Strathberry dust bag provided.
