During half-term my daughter and I had a day out together, I put my black bag across me as usual only to be told on the train that it was a “trying-to-be-trendy-but-failing-mum-bag”. I didn’t think it was that bad. But now I come to think of it my husband has also suggested that I treat myself to a new bag a few times recently…. Oh (sound of penny dropping), the bag is awful.
On my hunt for a less awful handbag, I saw these leather bags by Natthakur London that are masquerading as paper and plastic bags, they’re not handbags but they are so lovely. This leather striped grocery bag looks just like the ones from my corner shop but it won’t split as you walk down the road and it’s far nicer. It’s £140 and also available in red.
A ‘paper’ bag that will never go soggy in the rain, available in brown or white leather at £130. The hand printed fabric lining has a repeat of the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ man. Genius.
The mini leather paper bag is an American style grocery bag that I think is my favourite of the two faux paper styles, it also has the ‘Keep Britain Tidy’ lining and is £65.
Natthakur London have loads more gorgeous leather purses, cuffs and wallets in their shop, have a look – it really is like browsing in a sweet shop.
