The 1834 Glen Keith

135.00

Woven from the finest natural fibres, the distinctive checked tweed of the 1834 Glen Keith is a beautifully refined heritage accessory to be treasured for a lifetime.  The warm tones take their inspiration from the natural splendour and breath-taking colours of the Scottish Highlands where the tweed is woven by a family company with a 200 year history.   Uniting the skill of two Scottish artisans, the tweed is then passed on to a traditional sporran makers workshop where fabric & leather are cut & stitch to create each bag. 

Each 1834 has an adjustable strap so it can be worn as a long or short shoulder bag & as a beltbag. Designed with an expanding leather inner, the bag is compact yet deceivingly spacious. The Collection takes inspiration from the sporran accessory, native of Scotland. It takes time, precision & passion to create every 1834 – from cutting & sewing the leather to hand-fitting more than 30 metal components. The master sporran makers who create each piece draw on a rich manufacturing history, which extends back to 1834.

Born out of necessity in the 12th century, Highland warriors were the first to wear the leather sporran, over a kilt - a single piece of tartan cloth requiring no tailoring, and therefore no pockets. This modern reinterpretation by NIXEY stays true to the original design essence, yet adds an element of surprise as each 1834 seamlessly interchanges from shoulder bag to waist bag, reflecting the versatility of contemporary life. The 1834 gives you the freedom to wear your own way!
