Tote Traveller

by Catherine Aitken



Strong, practical, stylish – and Scottish weatherproof.

Don’t you just love a multi-functional bag!  Messenger or shopper or shoulder – whatever suits you best.  

Created with Harris Tweed on one side and Dry Waxed Cotton on the other side and the base.  Antique brass zipper across top, two pockets on the front, triple slot pocket inside created from red drill cotton.  Black heavy cotton webbing strap that’s adjustable. 

Harris Tweed is a handwoven naturally oily cloth that was created for the heavenly weather in Scotland.  Halley Stevensons Waxed Cotton has been keeping fishermen dry since the 1850s.  A lot of expertise in one bag.

Dimensions:  37cms wide; 34cms high; 27cms high when folded and 6 cms deep.

Catherine Aitken

Handbag designer

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.

Unsurprisingly, her inspiration springs from the cinema screen. Think of the tailored designs by Edith Head (Hitchcock's legendary costume designer) and the classic wardrobe of Doris Day. Or the tweedy loveliness of Lauren Bacall in films like To Have And Have Not and Margaret Rutherford’s eccentric tailored combinations in Murder at the Gallop!

Whilst she occasionally dips her toe back into the producing world, Catherine’s in her element generating new designs and working closely with clients to create bespoke handbags and manbags that showcase the best of Scottish materials.
