The company was founded on the Isle of Arran where it quickly grew. By 1990 they had opened a shop on Edinburgh’s picturesque Victoria street.
In 2004 the Arran and Edinburgh businesses started to trade independently. In 2011 the Mackenzie’s in Edinburgh was bought by myself, Simon Harvey-Potts.
In 2002 I started working as an apprentice in time-honoured fashion, to become a master of the trade and then the owner. I’m absolutely passionate about my work and hand producing bespoke leather goods and bags that are one of a kind and full of character.
Now firmly in the 21st century we feature new types of the very finest Italian & Spanish soft hide leathers. We also offer a range of new styles of bags and products as well as colours and the ability to personalise your bag.
