A sleek equestrian-inspired design based on a series of graceful curves, The Cartmel Workbag comes in highly polished Italian leather, a veg-tanned Vacchetta which just gets better with age.


Like its smaller sister, The Cartmel Cross-Body, this handsome work tote 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 a dainty gold metal key, hanging from the leather key fob.

The Cartmel Workbag houses a well-organised tri-part interior with a securely zipped, A4-compatible central section - ideal for carrying valuables. Designed in England and handcrafted for OSPREY LONDON in Italy in very limited numbers.

  • Women's OSPREY LONDON workbag.

  • 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 black edge stain.

  • Handstitched in smart self-coloured stitching.

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

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

  • The reverse of this bag  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 spacious and 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.

  • As with all leathers, avoid getting wet and follow our leather care recommendations.


At OSPREY LONDON, each leather is selected for its individual beauty, performance and feel. Each skin is unique, so any irregularity is viewed as characteristic of leather's natural appeal.

As with all natural materials, leather needs special care. Follow these tips to help keep your OSPREY LONDON product looking as desirable tomorrow as it does today:

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

  • Ensure your suede or leather product does not rub against other fabrics, to reduce any risk of colour transference and to protect 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 bag or wallet. Travelling light will help it retain its shape - and it's better for your back too.

  • When not in use, stuff your bag with acid-free paper and store it in a fabric dust bag.

  • Always refer stains to a specialist leather cleaner.

Treat it well and your OSPREY LONDON product will give you pleasure for many years to come.
