Introducing The Cartmel, the equestrian-inspired cross-body bag in highly polished Italian leather. Veg-tanned the traditional way, this special Vacchetta leather just gets better with age.



Like a beautiful dressage saddle, The Cartmel is handstitched and takes its design cues from heritage saddlery, with stirrup-shaped gold metal rings, hand applied black edge stain and embossed foldover flap. This secures to the bag with an elegant gold metal shield-clasp with stud rivet detailing, which can be locked with its dainty gold metal key, hanging from the leather key fob.

The Cartmel houses a well-organised tri-part interior with a securely zipped, A5-compatible central section - ideal for carrying valuables. Supplied with an adjustable/detachable leather strap, this bag can be worn across the body, on the shoulder or over the wrist. Designed in England and handcrafted for OSPREY LONDON in Italy in very limited numbers.

  • Women's OSPREY LONDON handbag with detachable cross-body strap.

  • Handstitched in rich, vegetable-tanned Italian cowhide, which is then given a highly polished finish. This elegant leather takes on the life you give it and just gets better with age.

  • Elegant design, based on smooth curved lines, emphasized by hand applied chestnut edge stain.

  • Handstitched in smart self-coloured stitching.

  • A top handle affixes to the bag with pale gold metal stirrup-shaped rings.

  • A long flat strap can be attached to the bag via two metal rings which can be found in the aperture found on either side of the foldover flap.

  • A discreet OSPREY LONDON logo is embossed towards the base of the bag.

  • The reverse of this bag is bears the embossed legend: Genuine Florentine Vacchetta leather.

  • The bag closes with a small, semi-circular foldover flap on which is a pale gold metal lockable shield-clasp. The key is held within a black leather sheath which hangs from a leather strap tied within the bag.

  • Under the flap is an A5-compatible, well-organised tri-part interior lined in red brushed cotton.

  • The central section is zipped along the top with a metal zip and leather zip-pull. The other sections feature a zipped pocket and a mobile phone pocket.

  • Flat base and sides ensure this bag is beautifully spacious.

  • Comes with cream cotton dustbag to protect the bag when not in use.

At OSPREY LONDON we select the leathers used for our accessories for their individual beauty, performance and feel. Each skin is unique, so any quirks are viewed as characteristic of leather's natural appeal.

  • Keep your product away from direct sources of light and heat.

  • Ensure your leather product is not allowed to rub against other materials, to reduce any risk of colour transference and to retain its special finish.

  • Dampness, humidity and rain should be avoided. If your OSPREY LONDON product does become wet, blot the excess moisture with a soft, light-coloured cloth; stuff with tissue paper; and leave to dry naturally.

  • Don't overfill your OSPREY LONDON wallet or purse to help it retain its shape.

  • Always refer stains to a specialist leather cleaner.
