C&T Autumn 2021 Collection
If C&T was a season, it would be autumn! We love everything about it – fallen leaves on the forest floor, a troop of mushrooms around the base of a tree, the smell of a wax jacket and a soggy dog drying by a log fire… and of course, heaps of tweed, velvet and leather from Collar and Tweed.
When we saw this exclusive tweed on the Harris Tweed Scotland website too, we just had to make it into a shoulder bag.
Due to the exclusivity of the tweed, we have only five available, so these are very limited edition.
These are being combined with a stunning strap in full grain veg tan leather from Tuscany, Buttero Leather in Green.
We hope you love it as much as we do!
We’ve called this tweed, “The Rivendell” inspired by the beautiful and mysterious, forest in the classic JRR Tolkien stories.
Lined with a really unique fungi themed fabric in blues and autumn tones.
The base of the bag is in a soft mustard green Harris tweed and the piping is luxurious soft green velvet.
The bag has two inner pockets, a zip in the lining fabric and a slip pocket in Harris Tweed for all those useful things you need to carry with you. This bag with the ‘Fantastic Fungi’ lining has a bright orange Harris Tweed slip pocket.
As always, our items are all made by hand, by us, direct to you. As a result, you can customise as follows:
- The bag is provided with a strap made from the same high quality full-grain veg-tan leather we use for our leads and collars, and you can select the length of the strap from Short (44″/112cm ), Medium (47″/119cm) and Long (50/127cm). The dimensions are for the strap only, and the bag hangs below this, so you can use a tape measure over your shoulder to simulate the strap and see what would work best for you. These are based on cross body wear, i.e. bag across shoulder and neck.
Sizing of the bag is as follows (all sizes are approximate):
- Width: 9″ (23cm)
- Height: 7″ (18cm)
- Depth: 3″ (8cm)
Clearly, as the bag is constructed from fabric, it is perfectly possibly to carry something larger than 3″ deep, as the bag will allow some change in shape to accommodate it.
