The Cartridge bag design was historically used by soldiers to carry bullets as far back as the 1800s. While thankfully no longer required for this purpose, the essence of the design lives on in this popular shoulder bag.

Our handmade leather cartridge bag features a simple buckle fastening, and an internal, suede velour lining pocket that’s handy for your phone, purse and keys.

Handcrafted in our Edinburgh workshop by skilled craftsmen, its classic design is the perfect balance of both style and comfort.

All our bags and briefcases come with a Mackenzie Leather branded dust bag to protect it while you’re not using it.

    Fabulous bag! It’s my 4th Mackenzie product and it, like all the others, is stylish, well made and functional. It’s the perfect size with just the right number of slot pockets for phone, masks and hand sanitizer packets. And, it’s beautiful inside with a lovely blue suede and outside.

    I bought this bag a few months ago after admiring it on the Mackenzie website for over a year. I was after a quality, bespoke & durable shoulder bag & this bag does not disappoint. The smell of the beautiful quality leather gets me every time & I like how much I can fit in the bag. I went with the option of extra zippered pockets on the outside back panel & inside under the flap which are ideal for easy access to my phone & hand sanitiser. I found Simon very obliging & helpful throughout the whole process as I live on the other side of the world (Australia) so I couldn’t see the leather colours or bags in real life before purchasing. This will be a forever bag for me & it runs rings around big designer bags that I have previously owned. Every time I use my Cartridge bag I receive compliments. I look forward to purchasing more leather goods from Mackenzie & highly recommend them to people who appreciate quality & craftsmanship.
