Shop Announcement:

P&P!! For one item it's easy to calculate, for more than one it's more tricky. Personally, I hate it when I see charges rack up, so I make it my policy not to charge more for postage and packing than it actually costs. So, if you would like to order more than one item, I always refund any p&p excess once it's on it's way to you.

I'm also happy to ship abroad, although I can't currently predict delivery times due to the COVID-19 situation - just message me and I'll discuss this and calculate the p&p for you.

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!!) In 2014, I made my first bag from a piece of oilcloth left over from another project. It was a simple design, but my friends loved that it wasn't mass produced and asked me to make some for them.
A few years later and my designs have developed, but I still love the challenge of working with oilcloth and gorgeous fabrics; 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 - pattern matching is one of my things! - hopefully makes them stand out as unique.
I'm also trying to do my little bit for the environment by using re-cycled packaging when dispatching my orders.
