Strathberry is the independent luxury handbag brand and design house born from the vision of Edinburgh based husband and wife team, Guy and Leeanne Hundleby.
With their roots in Scotland but with a truly international appeal, Strathberry’s aim is to create beautiful, stylish, luxury handbags at attainable prices.
“We looked at the current bag market and noticed a huge chasm, in not only price but also quality, between what people call entry level handbags and the high end designer pieces. We set out to create a collection of bags that were not only of the highest quality – using the best leathers and craftsmanship in Europe– but with a price point that people could realistically afford.”
Guy Hundleby, Founder
Inspired by an heirloom sheet music satchel (above), the quality and classic charm of this vintage piece has informed the creative direction and quality integrity that lies at the heart of the Strathberry brand. The head designer cut his cloth at Louis Vuitton Group and the designs are matched with only the best quality materials and craftsmanship in Europe. All styles in the brand’s core collection feature the instantly recognisable, Strathberry signature metal bar fastening that is sure to become a design classic.
Strathberry launched their first Kickstarter campaign last month (June 2015) with a dual purpose – to raise the funds needed to globally expand the brand, whilst also offering a loyalty incentive for early Strathberry fans. From now until 12th July – Strathberry are offering customers the opportunity to pre-order from their core collection at a special Kickstarter rate – with prices from £154.
Under a month into the Kickstarter campaign, Strathberry is already in the top five most successful British Kickstarter fashion projects of all time.
