About Umpie Handbags

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

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

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 on 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, but 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...
