Sling a handmade Georgia Jay bag over your shoulder

Not only does your bag bear the responsibility of guarding some of your most valuable possessions, but it also tells the world a lot about you. Make your first impression a good one with one of these lovingly crafted, ethically minded little beauties.


Many magnificent creations hail from the land of the long white cloud (Westgold butter and Church Road Wines, we’re looking at you) and these Georgia Jay delights are no exception. Carefully crafted from unwanted ‘dead stock’ sourced in the local Grafton area, every leather bag and purse is made entirely by hand in the brand’s Auckland studio/store. Hide is cut one piece at a time and goods are made to order, keeping in line with the label’s commitment to creating products with longevity and avoiding wastage.

With a focus on slow fashion, the Georgia Jay collection blends practicality with effortless style and a close attention to detail. Gracefully curved flip pouches meet buttery soft bags featuring solid maple wood handles handcrafted by woodworker Talcia Emes, while giant leather totes concealing secret pockets share the limelight with cross-body bags featuring the label’s signature a-symmetric angled front darts. A colour palette traversing Negroni, Mustard, Tangerine, Pear and Butter reads more like a menu than a catalogue, but offers just as much temptation. Browse and shop the wares online to have them shipped from the New Zealand studio right to your door.
