In the Field: Behind the handcrafted Leather Bags and Panniers


Hill & Ellis Leather Panniers Hand Made in Britain Available for purchase at Le Velo Victoria

We've been carrying our line of leather bags and panniers for the better part of a year now and we thought it was time to tell their story.

With decades of experience in producing luxury bags, Hill and Ellis partnered up with a Hackney, East London manufacturing company where the craft of hand stitching and cutting the leather are still a real thing. You can see the beauty and craftsmanship in the quality of the bag. This is one of the many things we absolutely love about this line.

To compliment their production, our good friends at Hill and Ellis also source their materials as close to home as possible to reduce their effect on the environment. The attachment hooks are from Germany, the leather comes from tanneries in Holland, the buckles are all plated in Northampton and the waterproof covers are made in Dorset.
