It is not often that one comes across exceptional craftsmanship together with contemporary yet classic design – but earlier this year the American-Scottish Foundation was introduced to Strathberry of Scotland. The brand is taking the fashion industry by a storm, and with such beautiful craftsmanship and high-quality design, it is no wonder why.
Strathberry of Scotland is a leading, modern Scottish brand which prides itself on making luxurious, high-end bags that match other designer bags in quality, but with more reasonable price tags.
Besides their collection of handmade bags, Strathberry also designs accessories with iconic Scottish textiles like tweed, lace, and cashmere from the Hawick Cashmere mill in the Scottish Borders. Non-endangered salmon skin is also used in the production of some bags and accessories, adding even more Scottish flair to the sustainable fashion brand.
Strathberry boasts the highest standards of quality and design. Not only does the brand support local producers, but every item in the collection is handmade in Europe. Taking inspiration from traditional means of artistry, Strathberry craftsmen take anywhere from 15 to 20 hours to create a single bag.
Strathberry founders, Guy and Leeanne Hundleby, officially launched their collection in 2013. Just three years later, the brand is really taking off. Celebrities like Emma Watson, Lily Allen and Paloma Faith are Strathberry wearers, and Strathberry bags appear in countless fashion-blogs and magazines.
