ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Our collection of handmade leather handbags has been evolving since the 1980s.
Shape has always been an influence in the design process, whether looking at structured or soft designs. One of our very first
creations was the padded fruit bag, and we later added the Bulb, Petal and Kerala, which remain in our collection today.
Our collection is divided into two different categories. On the one hand, we’ve got the more tailored look, creating structured shapes
using clean, simple lines, influenced by 1930s architecture and ceramics. If this is your style, take a look at the Scoop shoulder bag for
a modern twist on a classic design. On the other hand, we’ve take high-quality leather to create a softer, more casual look, with organic,
fluid lines inspired by nature; the finer details are influenced by past couture designs. For example, the bell bag is a double-flap design
that has been in our collection for many years and has been re-designed to follow the seasons’ trends. In our current collection you’ll
find examples of this design in the Lindsay bag, and the smaller Louise.
We specialize in colour, offering unique combinations that cannot be found in other collections, and we are constantly adding new leathers
to the range, ensuring each design is unique.
In our collection we offer handbags for all occasions: leather shoulder bags, leather rucksacks, leather tote bags, leather weekend bags
and special occasion evening bags.
Attention to detail is important in creating every one of our leather bags, and we use contrast piping for decorative detailing and
handmade toggles for fastenings, each element uniquely identifying a Jane Hopkinson Leather Bag.
The Kerala was inspired by the beautiful, rolling rice barges on the backwaters of Southern India. This is a design classic, a
beautifully sculptured evening or day bag, easily accessible and with plenty of room inside.
Elegant in shape, the Scoop leather shoulder bag is another design classic, with beautiful sculptural qualities and sweeping
architectural panels. The structured leather shoulder bag has contrasting panels with a simple, clean lines following the
contours of the body. The Scoop leather shoulder handbag is a fantastic bag for day wear or smart occasions. It has a zip top
closure and is fully lined with an inside zip pocket and mobile phone holder.
