Be a little different with Umpie

Umpie - proudly handmade in Yorkshire because we admire individuality, good quality and great British style !

At Umpie Yorkshire we like to be a little bit different, all our British made handbags are designed and traditionally handmade in the UK - which is rather rare these days !

We have a handbag style for every occasion -  from colourful Kilim Bags, pretty summer Floral Handbags, Hobo Bags with a choice of handles - to wear either Messenger Bag or Shoulder Bag style.  Or choose one of our more exclusive Leather Trimmed Bags, all made from the finest fabrics.

Going away ? Then why not treat yourself to a luxury Weekend Bag or Leather trimmed Gladstone Bag all exclusively handmade in Yorkshire and cabin size for travel.

New for this season are our Perfect T-shirts and Vests. We all found it personally very difficult to buy a good quality T-Shirt, we wanted one that had slightly longer sleeves, didn't shrink, twist or loose its shape in the wash, but it seemed impossible to find - but we are very pleased to announce we have indeed found the perfect T-Shirt ! Made in a luxury super soft Pima Cotton and ticking all the boxes.

And our popular Merino Wool Poncho is back this season in a choice of lovely fresh summer colours, always very elegant and perfect to take on holiday as an extra layer.

We hope you find something you like.

Featured Handbag of the month - The Bucket Bag!

One of our most popular handbag styles "The Bucket Bag" shape actually dates back to the 1930s.

The silhouette of 30s fashion for women was pretty, graceful and feminine, nipped in waists, defined shoulders but mostly all about having fun with accessories. The first Bucket Bag was made by Hermes and named of course after it's quirky bucket shape.

Modern Bucket Bags more or less follow the same elegant design, are usually hand carry style, always wider at the top than the base and are smaller in size, but due to their triangular shape they're surprisingly capacious inside and able to hold a lot more than you might think !
