About Umpie Handbags

Joanna Umpleby

My absolute passion is handbags!
If you carry an attractive handbag, it instantly enhances any outfit, dressed up or down.
I handcraft beautiful and original handbags in my accessories workshop in North Yorkshire.
Each handmade bag combines distinctive fabrics with quality leather handles, creating a unique handbag - just for you.

I've been designing and making women's handbags all my adult life. From my first job in London in 1982 with a traditional handbag company - manufacturing globally, to the present day - bags are what I do.

Umpie Bags are only available in this online store. I don't sell to shops or stores or make handbags for other companies.

So invest in an Umpie Bag and be guaranteed a unique handbag, handmade with extra care and attention to detail, a favourite handbag that you'll treasure for many years.
Thank you for looking. I hope you find a beautiful Umpie Bag you'll love.
