Swaggy Bag

Swaggy Bag

This bag is a celebration of good leatherwork, design integrity, utility, disipline, uncomprising quality and value. 


The Bag was initially designed over 40 years ago by ALAN WARNER,  an ex-kiwi based in Sydney. Inspired by Spanish bags of the 1960s. It has subsequently been made (in various qualities) by probably half a dozen Australian makers. “Half-arsed” copies have also been made throughout Asia and Europe.


The  Swaggy Bag made by Mark Honoré has been made with respect to Alan’s

initial design disciplines, featuring:


  • Full grain cowhide nappa leather (black), calfskin leather lining (natural)
  • Double stitched seams, included french bound flap
  • Vegetable tanned cowhide trim at the stress points
  • One piece shoulder strap
  • Solid brass fittings…buckles, dees, inter-screws
  • Steel rivets
  • Zippers YKK brass (made to size).
  • Four compartments, Brass fittings, Leather lined, Veg-tanned trim.
  • A small opening, will fit an iPad, but not a laptop !


Look after this bag, and it should be good for 15-20 years.


“It’s all curves, it has a timeless nature to it”.
