Our clever design delivers the perfect multi-tasking mini bag. Hettie is that elusive 'just-right' phone-keys-and-lippy bag, though you can squeeze quite a bit more in besides. With 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 new baby 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 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 Leather


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.
