About Macclesfield Bag Works

Macclesfield Bag Works

Designing unique bags and purses - who wants a bag like everyone else's?

I'm Alison and I've been sewing and making for as long as I can remember. I made my first dress at the age of six and remember being very pleased when I wore it to school!
(Some time later!!) 2014, I made my first bag from a piece of oilcloth left over from another project....a simple design, but my friends loved that it wasn't mass produced and asked me to make some for them.
Fast forward to now, and my designs have developed, but I still love the challenge of working with oilcloth, repurposed denim, upholstery textiles and waxed cottons. Ultimately owning a bag which is truly unique and individual. For me, finding gorgeous fabrics and beautiful linings is one of life's pleasures and turning them into something unique is a joy. Attention to detail and the finish of my bags hopefully makes them stand out as unique.

    Oh crickey! Firstly, super speedy delivery! Proper posh and scrummy packaging. Beautiful handwritten note......and then the bag itself, totally unique, skilfully made. The combo of vintage denim and floral fabric is so gorgeous...then to top it all off, the lush little details, pockets, key chain, phone storage, makers label. It was filled within minutes, donned and I found myself staring at it in the mirror! smiling widely as I shall everyday I pop it on. Super talented and lovely seller. Thank you Alison for making my day xxxx
