Clever design delivers the perfect multi-tasking mini bag. Hettie is that elusive 'just-right' phone-keys-and-lipstick bag, though you can squeeze quite a bit more in besides. With the cross-body strap attached, you have a lovely, lightweight assistant for your hand-free activities. With just the (beautifully-crafted) top-handle attached, you have a dressy and cute mini handbag or wristlet-clutch, and with no strap at all, the chicest simple clutch bag. And of course, she also fits perfectly inside our Hazel or Twyford bags as a beautiful, matching accessory. There are so many ways this bag will serve.

Hettie’s Story

In a quest to make a better solution to those tiny crossbody pouches as a place to keep your phone and not much else, we miniaturised the Mini Holly even further. Then we set about giving this little wonder extra skills with a pair of interchangeable straps and an array of colours to suit absolutely any outfit. So good, you might need more than one…

The Ultimate Party Bag

Perhaps the ultimate black-tie party bag, the Gold Hettie is three beautiful bags in one – a glamorous party clutch, a show-stoppingly pretty hand-held mini bag, and a sparkling shoulder-bag, all in one little package. Made from beautiful, glittering gold suede, a British-made luxury leather, the Gold Hettie adds a star turn to a raft of beautiful colour choices.

The Neatest Crossbody

When you need the lightest of bags, for the barest essentials and hands-free independence, Hettie delivers. Take off the top handle, clip on the shoulder strap, adjust to your perfect length and go. Big enough to take your phone (yes, even a big one), keys, small wallet or purse (such as our coin purse) and leave room for more, this bag is slim, balanced and comfortable to wear.

The Leathers


Crafted from carefully selected hides, and with a softly polished finish, our glossy Atlantic leather allows the natural beauty and richness of the hide to show. A perfect leather for handbags, it is light, durable and yet beautifully natural.

Gold Crackle Suede

The special suede used to create our stunning Gold Hettie takes a supersoft calf suede which is coated with gold foil and then tumbled to give an amazing crackled and sparkly finish that feels incredibly soft to the touch and yet glimmers beautifully (and not shed glitter or sequins!). It really has to be seen and felt to know how special it is.
