The 1834 Royal Stewart and Black Leather Bag celebrates timeless British style. A thoughtful gift for that special someone with an eye for artisanship.
Taking the traditional three tassel design of the classic sporran, the 1834 bag is a modern reinterpretation designed to suit a modern lifestyle. Uniquely, each NIXEY bag has an adjustable strap, so it can be worn as a shoulder bag, cross-body bag or beltbag/bumbag. The versatile beltbag feature adds a hands-free convenience, suiting country dog-walkers, to busy mums & fashion-conscious festival goers.
A discreet personalisation can be added to each 1834, free of charge. A letter initial charm which can be seen when the bag is opened adds a little element of surprise for that truly thoughtful gift.
Handcrafted by expert sporran makers in the Scottish Highlands, the collection champions local leather-making traditions which date back to 1834. Truly authenic in it's creation, our bags are also worn by men as a contemporary sporran.
Universally recognised, the red Royal Stewart tartan is associated with the royal House of Stewart and is the personal tartan of Queen Elizabeth II. Reappropriated in 70s Britain in punk fashion, it has had a long and relevant history with the British Isles.
The 1834 Royal Stewart unites the skills of two Scottish artisan manufacturers. The tartan is woven from natural wool fibres by a family company with a 200 year old history. Passed on to the traditional sporran makers workshop, the plaid is then handcrafted with black leather to create each bag.
Designed with an expanding leather inner, the 1834 bag is compact yet deceivingly spacious. The collection is available in a range of 9 heritage leathers, tartans & tweed.
