Description

The handmade leather Gladstonette bag is a more compact and feminine version of the original Gladstone bag. Famous for being a Doctor’s bag, this elegant redesign encompasses the character features to a size that sits perfectly on the arm.

The original Gladstone has been a firm favourite of the Mackenzie Leather collection since 1990. Sometimes known as a Doctor’s or Physician bag, our original design has been perfected over the years, using Mackenzie cuts, fastenings and flair to create our signature product. Even in the relatively short time since we adopted the name Gladstonette,  it’s become a timepiece of history.

Perfectly sized and roomy inside, the Gladstonette is made from the finest Italian & Spanish hide leather that gains character over time, giving it a beautifully distinctive worn charm.

At Mackenzie Leather, our take on the iconic Gladstonette is centred around quality. Our craftsmen use the finest Italian & Spanish hide leather to create a handmade leather bag that’ll last a lifetime.

    I love my gladstonette! After discovering Mackenzie Leather in Edinburgh I ordered on line after returning to Australia. The process was easy, with expert guidance from Simon every step of the way. The shape is classic and it is absolutely beautifully made with lovely detail. It’s my “go to” bag. I am excitedly waiting for my next Mackenzie bags to arrive!

    I had set my eyes on this bag for the last two years. My husband recently bought it for me in 🌶 colour. The quality and craftsmanship of the bag is extraordinary! It really looks like a dream come true! Also Simon made the whole purchase process a fantastic experience for us. I truly couldn’t be happier! My very best wishes to Mackenzie Leather and it’s amazing team.

    I LOVE this bag! I visited the store in 2019 and couldn’t stop thinking about it. It’s even more beautiful than I remembered! The details are exquisite. Working with Simon gave me confidence in the choices I made for leather and hardware. The size of the bag is perfect. And every time I open it I get a nice surprise due to the interior being pink. Again, I LOVE this bag. Thank you!
