Bill Amberg: The King of the man bag
Hailing from Northampton, Bill Amberg has always had an innate passion for craftsmanship. Born into a creative family, Amberg was inspired to make and create from an early age. In 1985 he opened his first leather workshop in Rotherhithe where he made bags, molded body pieces and sculptures. Since then Amberg has opened stores across London (including his flagship in Mayfair) and has been selling his leather goods to swanky boutiques worldwide.
Amberg’s range of classic handmade leather bags display true artistry in design and have been worn by the likes of Jude Law, Kate Winslet and Jarvis Cocker. The Messenger bag is the ultimate ‘man bag’, beautifully made from high quality leather and available in mustard, black, sand/cream and tan. With its city-chic look and the multiple pockets, it is extremely practical for work and getting around the city with all your necessities.
The unisex Tote bags are equally city friendly and look great no matter who is carrying one!
If you need something a little larger, you’ll be happy to find that Bill Amberg is the king of backpacks! Being one of the best selling items, The Hunter Rucksack is accompanied by adjustable bridle leather straps, solid brass fittings and lined with 100% cotton. They are perfect for everyday use and look effortlessly cool.
And let’s not forget the incredible Overnight bag collection! The Aston, The Medicine and the Weekender bags are all designed for overnight trips and cheeky weekends away. Each bag is large enough to hold a lot yet the elegant shape gives the bag a formal sophisticated feel.
Additionally this impressive designer also makes wallets, wash bags, ipad cases, a papoose and has even released a new hunting collection!
There’s truly something for each and every man.
