Hepburn Backpack Blues


Shown here in a stunning blue herringbone, the closure is a foldover top, held securely in place with buckles. There's a handy top handle for carrying, and the straps are heavy cotton 1" wide chocolate brown webbing and fully adjustable. The backpack has a waxed cotton reverse with a large zipped pocket to keep precious belongings like phone, tickets etc., safe but easy to reach. The natural veg tan leather front closures are in brown and the fittings are all brass. Handmade in Scotland

A heady mix of handwoven Harris Tweed and waxed cotton produced in Dundee - the Hepburn range is all about style and practicality. Although Harris Tweed is a naturally oily cloth made to withstand the Scottish climate, we also make our bags with a waterproof interlayer so you can rest assured all your belongings are safe inside whatever the weather!

Approximate Dimensions: 31cm wide, and 31cm high when closed, 4 cm deep.

About Designer Catherine Aitken

Bespoke bag virtuoso Catherine Aitken has a background in producing feature films and TV drama. The seeds of her second career were sown when she designed handbags to promote a film she was financing at the Cannes Film Festival. Sadly the film didn't fly but (happily for bag fans) the new line of business did, and in 2012 she gave up producing to concentrate on her own label.

Since then business has boomed. Catherine’s designs retail in stores throughout the UK, Europe and the US and each season brings new additions to the collection. She has shown her work in London, New York and Los Angeles, and produced a collection for the National Galleries of Scotland to celebrate their Titian exhibition.
