Our bags are handmade on site by Tweedmill, before being sent away to a leather artisan collective in Shropshire for warm embossing with the Darby logo.

We replaced our leather bags with faux leather because repeatedly exposing such a large area of real leather to ultra violet (UV) light for prolonged periods of time on sunny days caused it to fade and crack.

We believe our products should be made to last a lifetime, so consistent with this view, these bags are crafted from high quality faux leather instead.  We’ve since discovered this switch has another advantage in that it can simply be wiped clean with warm water if stained with food and drink.
