NEW: Introducing The Holyrood, The College Tote & The Canvas Satchel

Whether it’s back to work, or back to school, kickstart your September in style with three brand new leather bag designs from Mackenzie Leather.


The artisan leather craftsmen have been working behind the scenes to design and craft two new handbag designs and a new satchel design. But these designs aren’t entirely from scratch. All have been inspired by the very best of existing classic Mackenzie Leather cuts…


The Holyrood

The Holyrood – named after Edinburgh’s iconic Holyrood Palace – is a compact leather tote. The body mirrors the shape of The Rucksack, but the elegant fixed handles, reinforced base and solid brass feet create a design to rival our famous Gladstonette.

Available in both a small or larger size, to best suit your needs.



The College Tote

The College Tote – named for it’s functional multi-wear design – is the perfect bag for those who lead busy lives and need a handbag that does more.

The body is based on our Mackenzie Tote design, but the straps are taken from our Rucksack model. With a seamless pull, the leather handles are transformed from stylish shoulder bag to a comfortable backpack.

What’s more, the unique crossover of the straps provides extra security to the open tote style.



The Canvas Satchel

Now for something a little more fitting for the gents! Our new Canvas Satchel combines the classic cut of an everyday shoulder bag with the durable design of our super Scottish Canvas.

Available in two sizes and handcrafted from our existing range of Canvas. This new design is perfect for tackling adventures without compromising on style.



The Holyrood, College Tote and Canvas Satchel will all be available to order online this month.
