About Umpie Handbags

If your looking for a handmade bag, a handbag quite different from mass-produced high street brands, then you've come to the right place!

Umpie Handbags are handmade in Britain, by myself and my small team at my Bag making Studio in Northallerton, North Yorkshire.

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

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

So invest in an Umpie Bag and be guaranteed not only a unique handbag, handmade with extra care and attention to detail but a favourite handbag that you'll treasure for many years to come.

Thank you for looking. I hope you find a beautiful Umpie Bag you'll love...
