    I am from Germany and I ordered my bags via Internet because of Covid-19.
    The service was amazing and the people were very nice.
    The bags look beautiful and also, they have a fantastic quality.
    When I am in Edinburgh soon, I definitely will buy an other bag in the shop.
    Thank you for your nice work!

    Great bag. Large enough to carry, for example, a few texts, notebook, iPad mini, (face mask!), keys and wallet. First class leather, good design, and comfortable to carry. A nice range of colours.
