I am always in search of the perfect bag and finally, I think I might have just found it. The Buckitt bag is a simple, high quality, hardwearing, British-made leather bag that is designed for everyday use. It is big enough to carry groceries and a lap top, yet smart and elegant too. Rae Jones was inspired to design the bag after seeing hordes of otherwise stylish women using grubby canvas totes, and even supermarket plastic bags, to carry their day-to-day belongings in. I am very guilty of this, I admit! The Buckitt bag is manufactured in a century old factory in Manchester, utilising the best of surviving British craft skills. It is made of high quality vegetable dyed leather that will age beautifully and is designed so that all components can be easily replaced should they wear out. You don't have to worry about losing your keys or purse at the bottom of the bag either, as there is a clever eyelet feature that can be used to attach a Buckitt loop, purse or pouch. Rae currently has a campaign on Kickstarter, where you can pledge funds in exchange for discounted bags and accessories. This is a great opportunity to support an exciting emerging brand while also receiving a classic piece that will last you a lifetime! The bags are currently available in a core collection of eight beautiful colours with accessories to match. Please visit and support her campaign here.
