In Focus: The Holly and Mini Holly
A huge favourite in the Tusting portfolio, the delightfully alluring shape of the Holly is inspired by the 1950s top-handled styles made famous by style icons like Grace Kelly and Jackie Onassis.
Curvy, pretty and unashamedly feminine, the Hollys are, like all Tusting bags, meticulously handcrafted at Tusting HQ in England from premium, full-grain leathers, and come in a rainbow of colours perfect for every occasion. A best seller in the Tusting portfolio, we introduce new shades to complement the classic colours in the collection every season. Two different sizes provide a choice of style statements and different capacities to cater for individual preferences.
What Holly owners say
“I love that my Holly changes the look of what I am wearing, to something with a little character and cheekiness. It’s small enough for a girly profile (can I say feminine?) but deceptively large that I’m not struggling to squeeze in essentials and making it bulky.”
“Carrying the Mini Holly makes me feel a little bit like Audrey Hepburn! Its petit, chic, modern and classic. The magical part is that it’s so neat and seemingly small but yet can take so much stuff… a big purse, phone, lippy and still room for keys tickets etc! Genius. I’d actually like a few more in different colours…”
Our Hollys have the curves and glamour of a 1950s starlet, the top-handle bringing some old school glam. If it feels too dainty, you can sporty things up a little with the detachable cross-body shoulder strap. The turn-lock fastening is discreet and simple and reassuringly secure. With their flap top and curved shape, the bags are surprisingly spacious with enough room for your keys, wallet, phone, notepad/diary (some of us still carry them, right?), lippy and mascara, but should you need a touch of extra room, you can release a little extra space by undoing the side poppers.
Two Brilliant Sizes
Both Holly sizes are lined with soft and tactile microsuede fabric which is bonded to the outer leather to make the most of the space inside and lend some extra body to the smooth fullgrain leather hides we use for these bags. This microsuede lining is durable and wipeable as well as being very lightweight, making sure each Holly remains as light as a feather.
The design and details are minimalist and neat and the size of both our mini and regular versions is such that you can keep things tidy. The internal slip and zip pockets mean that you can keep essential bits like your bank card or driver’s license nice and secure, a real bonus if you prefer to head out wallet-free, and a detachable key fob spares you frustration in the larger size which is big enough to hide your keys!
