12 Gifts of Christmas: Brilliant tweed bags

Emma says: ‘I make the bags I’ve never been able to find’

‘I grew up in the Tweed valley in Scotland, you see, which is full of mills making the most beautiful estate tweeds. But I could never find things I liked that used these incredible wools – and especially not for a sensible price. So I started making bags myself.’

The picture shows my Kirsty handbag in Kirkton tweed (£89) and a Lou iPad mini sleeve in Lewis tweed (£35). I make plenty more too, including:

* Handbags
* Messenger bags
* iPad sleeves
* Washbags
* Makeup bags
* And plenty more…

‘I use the very best materials, like Scottish tweed, full-grain hand-dyed leather and British Millerain waxed cotton. I make them all at home on the Cheshire plains, and you can only buy them directly from me. Get in there quickly, though – people are starting to snap things up in my most popular tweeds!’
