The early part of last century was a time of great change, with both adversity and prosperity defining a generation. It was a time where the world seemed like an enormous place. Travel was slow, and those that set off, often did so into the unknown. It was a time for romantics and adventurers.
This bag bears the name of the matriarch of our family, Betty Tickell. It is an ode to the fortitude, extraordinary longevity and legacy of that generation.
Our Betty Bag is our adaption of a vintage travel bag made out of 15oz natural canvas contrasted with beautiful vegetable-tanned leather. Betty is fully leather-lined and comes with antique brass hardware.
This is an heirloom piece that is made-to-order by Jess. Due to the number of hours involved in its production, our lead times typically sit at 3-6 months.
Please note that we use vegetable-tanned leather for the top, handles and corners of this bag, which differs to the consistent smooth finish that you find in most commercial bags. The bag may naturally have character and slight imperfections on the leather, which we embrace.
Shipping allows for full insurance and tracking.
