About Strathberry
Proudly Scottish at heart, but with a keen international outlook, Strathberry creates unique luxury pieces, handcrafted in Spain using only the very finest quality leathers and finishes. Known for its instantly recognisable bar closure and minimalist design aesthetic, Strathberry’s elegant bags and accessories and exceptional attention to detail have led to a global following.

Strathberry has recently secured investment to support its future growth plans with BGF, UK & Ireland’s most active growth capital investor.
