We know what you’re thinking, which Sbri bag is best for me? They all look the part, they can all be personalised and the colour choices are all just so good, so which one should I choose? Well, we can’t make that decision for you (sorry) but we can help to narrow down the options and help you choose a leather handbag that suits you and your lifestyle best. Last year we wrote a similar blog post comparing all our purse styles (you can find that here) so we thought it was time to do the same for our handmade leather bag collection. In this guide we’re going to run through our main bag styles at Sbri, outline the features of each and help you decide where your Sbri collection should start.
The Cross Body Bag - Best for the essentials
Leather cross body bag with personalised tag
- Comfortably holds your phone, keys and wallet or card holder
- Features an adjustable shoulder strap and secure Loxx fastening
- Measures 20 x 13.5 x 5.5cm
- Available in plain colours or with optional animal print accent panels
The Cross Body Bag is our take on a classic small leather handbag, with added Sbri fun. It’s perfect for carrying the essentials (phone, keys, purse, lippy), to grab and go when you’re bombing around town. The handcrafted cross body bags are beautifully made from quality British vegetable tanned leather and have a well structured feel. They have an adjustable shoulder strap so you can decide how low you want the bag to sit, and are finished with a solid brass Loxx fastening to keep all your belongings safe inside. Luxury quality, made to last.
Our Cross Body Bags are available in traditional black and vintage tan brown leather (classy), or bright orange and pastel lilac if you’re more of a colour fiend. We also offer the bags with our iconic leopard print pattern on the side panels, because if you ask us, everything should come with a side order of animal print.
The Phone Pouch Bag - Best for travelling light
- Personalised leather phone pouch bag
- Designed for carrying your phone alone (clue’s in the name)
- Features an optional card pocket and brass D-ring
- Measures 17.5 x 10.5 x 3cm
- Available in all Sbri colours, plus leopard print
You know that summer dress in your wardrobe that you look at every year and sigh, “if only you had pockets…”? Enter Sbri. Our personalised leather phone pouch bag is the perfect portable pocket for carrying your phone with you when you’re out and about with no need for baggage - whether that’s walking the dog or wandering around a festival site this summer. It keeps your phone close by and leaves your hands free. Our phone pouch bags come with a solid brass D-ring on the strap so you can clip on your keys, purse or your Sbri dog treat pouch, and we also offer an optional card pocket for the corner shop dash.
Our Phone Pouch Bags are available in all your favourite Sbri leather colours and you can choose to add a contrasting pocket or stick with matchy matchy. We’ve also designed an exclusive floral print phone bag as part of our Sbri x Elizabeth Rachael collaboration if flower power is more your thing.
The Origami Pouch Bag - Best for going out-out
- Personalised leather origami pouch bag
- Designed for your night out essentials
- Includes a removable shoulder strap so you can use it as a clutch bag or organisation pouch
- Two sizes available: small measures 19 x 11cm, large measures 22 x 15cm
- Available in a choice of colours and fun animal prints - can also be purchased as a set
Can’t decide whether you want a clutch bag or a shoulder bag? Our origami pouch bag is the best of both. The personalised leather pouch features a removable shoulder strap so you can wear it across the body in the day and as a clutch bag on your night out or event - we’re all about multi-purpose. The pouch bags are also great for using inside a larger tote or rucksack to keep all your bits and pieces together in one place (headphones, pills, tissues, lip balm, you know the sort).
Our Origami Pouch Bags are available in two sizes or as a set of three with one of our bestselling coin purses included. If you love our coin purses, we think you’ll love these too, they’re made in exactly the same way with clever leather folds and no need for stitching, like a great big envelope. Plus, did we mention they’re personalised?
The Mini Bag - Best for the little ones
- “Mama and Me” personalise leather bag set
- Made for little girls who get their style from their mama
- Set includes an Origami Pouch Bag for mum and a child-sized mini bag
- Mini bag measures 9.5 x 7cm with leather cord strap (origami bag as above)
- Available in all Sbri colours, plus leopard print
And for the little one who wants to be just like her Mama, we’ve made a mini Sbri bag for mini Sbri fans. Based on our original best selling leather coin purse, the child’s bag is perfect for pocket-money pennies, trinkets and treasures (beads, sweets, teeny sparkles - the type of treasures deemed completely essential by the under 8s). It features a leather cord strap so can be safely worn across the body and perfectly complements the grown-up bag. Dressing up like Mum has never been so much fun.
Our “Mama and Me” Bag sets are available in all your favourite Sbri colours and you can choose to colour match your bags or pick a different colour each. The set includes a small origami pouch bag and mini kid’s bag - if you’d like to purchase the kid’s bag separately just drop us a line and we can sort that for you.
All Sbri leather bags and accessories are made in the same studio (here in Ringwood, New Forest) from the same materials, so whichever you choose, luxury quality is guaranteed. Plus, you'll be supporting a British small business. So whether you’re someone who carries a bit of everything or prefers to keep it minimal, you can find the perfect bag at Sbri. Handmade personalised leather bags made from sustainable veg-tanned leather, with an extra helping of fun.
P.S. if you’ve got your eyes on a colour or print from our website that we don’t currently offer in our bag range just give us a shout. We make each bag to order here in the UK, so chances are we’ll be able to help.
