This unique, hand-made bag is designed to take you and your best friend from your walks together in the country, coast or city to sitting together in a cafe, pub or restaurant. Dimensions are bag 31cm wide, 48cm tall (before overlap), strap 82cm - 109cm (shortest to longest holes). Big enough to comfortably carry the day's essentials.
The bag features a detachable treat bag for easy access for you (and to take the temptation of easily reachable snacks away from your four-legged friends) while you are sipping your drink of choice. It is also perfect size for your sun glasses!
On the front of the bag is a handy and discreet leather, hand-stitched slot, which can be used to dispense poo bags, tissues or wet wipes. Next to it is a pocket that can carry a small bottle, for example: water for you and your furry friend.
There is a back pocket with a magnetic closure that can fit your iPad, e-reader, paperback or even a toy. It's also a handy place to put the dog lead .
The main bag has an inside pocket for phone and keys. Both the main bag and the treat bag are fully lined, and fasten with magnetic closures.
The shoulder strap is leather, adjustable with a buckle, to be worn across the body and secured with a belt loop.
What are the bags made of?
As we dog owners know, walking your hound can be a mucky business at times, so, I wanted to make a bag that would stand up to being well-used outdoors and keep it's smart looks.
Harris Tweed was the obvious choice as it comes in so many beautiful colours and is known as the 'champagne of fabrics'. It resists water, wear and tear and cleans easily with a damp cloth.
The world famous Orb Mark, the logo that signifies Harris Tweed is sewn on the underside of the bag flap.
The lining is made from a gorgeous colour-coordinated deckchair striped water resistant material, so can also be cleaned with a damp cloth.
The treat bag can be made either of Harris Tweed with a vintage button and magnetic closure, or of leather with a stud closure.
