Catherine Aitken has been creating her limited edition collections of fashion accessories for men and women for more than 15 years. It’s all handmade in her Edinburgh studio and it’s all about craftsmanship, heritage and style. Working mostly with the iconic handwoven Harris Tweeds from the Outer Hebrides, the range includes Backpacks, Messenger Bags, Handbags, Toiletry Bags, Scarves, Purses and Tech Pouches. Catherine teams the collection with leathers, waxed cottons produced in Dundee and beautiful natural linen from Fife. The Renaissance Collection, usually of messenger bags and backpacks, is created by recycling vintage Harris Tweed jackets and teaming them with Scottish Deerskin Leather. Bespoke collections have been especially created for the Glenfiddich Distillery, Judy Murray, National Galleries of Scotland and the British Museum, to name just a few. Much of Catherine’s work is now bespoke, with customers being happy to order designs from the range and have their own personal twists and customisations added, giving them a unique handmade accessory. The designs are available exclusively from Catherine’s online boutique.
