This handmade patchwork utility pocket adds a touch of additional style and practicality to an outfit. The hip bag/pouch comprises of a main pocket section (approximately 8" by 8") with a smaller (approximately 5" by 8") pocket on the front. The main utility pocket section has bellows each side which enable the pouch to expand out to allow for a variety of contents. There are a couple of D rings on the front of this patchwork leather hip bag. These are really useful if you like to attach keys or wallets on chains to something before putting them in a pocket. Talking of attaching, this pouch can either be secured to the belt loops on your trousers using the trigger hooks or you can feed your belt through the webbing loops at the back of the bag. If you prefer to wear this unique patchwork hip bag/pouch as a shoulder bag, an optional and adjustable webbing strap is available for an extra £5. This optional shoulder strap is made from 20mm wide webbing, with split rings either end, joined and adjusted via double D rings. A utility pocket for all occasions.
Each of these patchwork leather hip bag/pouches are completely unique. They are made from the genuine leather scraps generated when we cut and make our cow-hide trousers, skirts, jackets and corsets. We save every piece of leather possible, maximising the amount we use from each skin. These scraps are then glued onto pieces of polycotton and, once dry, are stitched down using our walking foot sewing machine. Once we have a piece of patchwork leather big enough, we cut the bag pieces out of both patchwork and a red duchess satin lining (bespoke lining colours are also available). From start to finish, these pouches take a surprisingly long time to make. But we feel the effort is worth it. Not only are we using as many leather remnants as possible, each pouch is different. No two have the same "pattern" of leather, and there are some available that have a mix of both black and red leather off-cuts.
