There is a growing desire for ‘Made in England’ and a shortage of ‘genuine’ English manufacturers, with misleading labelling practices common in the industry.
Alfie Douglas are proud of their heritage and as a British brand embrace the status that ‘Made in England’ carries throughout the world. Their ethos, 'made by individuals for individuals' carries through every aspect from design through to finished product.
Although the products are simple, there’s more to making a simple leather bag than meets the eye. It takes time, a skilled hand and a sophisticated knowledge of materials to get it right. Every piece is hand built at traditional workbenches in small batches by craftsman using skills that have been passed down through generations of the same family.
Alfie Douglas makers are a dedicated group of individuals who take great pride in everything that they make. Each piece is assembled and finished by hand, even the rivets, which are specially made, are hand-hammered. Each maker has their own distinctive style and personality making every Alfie Douglas piece unique and one of a kind.
