Brennan & Burch Bags: Your Favourite B&B Goodness in Bag Form
British interiors brand, Brennan & Burch have recently joined forces with master craftsman, The Leather Satchel Co to create 2 Brennan & Burch bags; a ‘Let the Music Play’ Pixie Bag and a ‘New Forest’ Tote Bag.
Holding on to everything we adore about their fantastical homeware and gift collections, the new Brennan & Burch bags add personality and charm to traditionally made, high quality satchels and shopping bags.
Let the Music Play Pixie Bag
The Let the Music Play Pixie Bag is a medium-sized cross-body bag. Combining traditional vintage British styling with a unique printed panel; decorated with a music-themed pattern created by illustrator Lisa Brennan.
Each of the leather bags are made to order, hand-crafted in Great Britain by artisan leather-workers at The Leather Satchel Co. The bag measures approximately: 10cm (h) x 24cm (w) x 9cm (d), making it a great everyday bag for all your essential bits and bobs.
New Forest Tote Bag
The New Forest Tote Bag is a large, black leather shopper, which sees traditional shape and styling combined with a modern print. The panel of each bag features a beautiful illustration by Lisa Brennan, which is sure to make this shopping bag stand out from the crowd. The bag is hand-crafted in Great Britain by artisan leather-workers at The Leather Satchel Co, with each one made to order.
Giving a large display area to its unique forest illustration, the bags measure approximately 38cm (h) x 32cm (w) x 10cm (d). An excellent size for everyday use or a special shopping spree.
The Leather Satchel Co. x Brennan & Burch
Like all good collaborations the creation of the new Brennan & Burch bags united 2 businesses with mutual respect and different, yet complimentary skills. The result was some amazing accessories that are both practical and wondrous.
Lisa Brennan & Majida Burch, Co-Founders, Brennan & Burch, said of the partnership:
“We have both been fans of The Leather Satchel Co. forever. The design, colours and quality of their bags is outstanding and they are a British heritage company. The neon satchels are right up our acid house street. We met Keith at an exhibition in London, had a good old chat and planned to put our heads together to do something in the future. A year or so down the line, The Leather Satchel Co. x Brennan & Burch collaboration was born.”
& Keith Hanshaw, Managing Director of The Leather Satchel Co added:
“I’ve always loved those nutcases at B&B, they’ve got a real quirky style that is so British it just seemed so ‘right’ to work on something together and with the introduction of our HD Digital Leather Tanning machine the timing was just perfect!”

About The Leather Satchel Co.
The Leather Satchel Co. are a group of British Master Craftsmen that create satchels based on the traditional style of Oxford and Cambridge schools as well as other traditional accessories. Started in 1966 by Stephen Hanshaw, the company is still a family owned business.
In the 1960’s, Stephen operated a small street stall selling leather goods that he would make. Due to high demand for school satchels, Stephen was joined by his two younger brothers, Barry and Paul; they established their first workshop on Smithdown Road in Liverpool.
The brothers have experience with a wide variety of leathers but a lot of their products are now made from heavy equestrian leather and have a very distinctive style. After the millennium, the company set up a brand new workshop in Huyton, Liverpool. Here they have continued to craft leather goods and accessories. The company has been a member of the British Guild of Master Craftsmen for over 40 years.
