The 1834 Royal Stewart and Black Leather Bag celebrates British style and design. Inspired by the Celtic sporran, each 1834 is handmade in Scotland.
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 and can be worn as a shoulder handbag, a cross body bag and a classic sporran waist bag. This beltbag feature adds a hands-free convenience suiting country dog-walkers, to busy mums to fashion-conscious festival goers. Designed with an expanding leather interior, the bag is compact yet deceivingly spacious for all those daily essentials.
Handcrafted by expert sporran makers in the Scottish Highlands, the collection champions local leather-making traditions which date back to 1834.
The 1834 Collection is available in nine British heritage colours and finishes.
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 skill 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 fabric is then handcrafted with black leather to create each bag.
The 1834 is a timeless choice of gift, as beautifully made leather accessories only improve with age and use. Do you have a Scottish, Irish or Celtic wedding this year? The 1834 may be the perfect way to celebrate the Bride or Grooms heritage.
