Ted Carbery was born on the 11th of November 1912. He was a saddler from Mountmellick Co. Laois in the midlands of Ireland.
Ted built a thriving business in the 1940’s with two leather workshops. He suffered an aneurysm when he was 44 years old. This caused him loosing the use of his right hand side, left speechless and he lost his memory. Ted’s road to recovery lasted 3 years. He documented every step of it in his diary which we discovered in 2015.
Incredibly, Ted made his leather goods using his mouth and left hand whilst supporting a family of 11 children.
His ability to crossover from right to left handed inspired us, to create a range of luxury bags with multi-functionality such as our 4 way carrying solution, our Smart-pocket with dual USB for charging on the move and tracking technology features. Yes our bags can carry stuff, yes they are handcrafted using the finest materials, but we wanted more, more unique, with more features than you would expect or imagine from such luxurious designs and materials.
We spent months studying Ted’s work, noting key features and details that we would include in our designs. We let the design ideas come to us and they did over time. “We have created a range of bags & accessories that adopt to your lifestyle, with extra functionality that wouldn’t typically be associated with luxury bags & accessories”
For the past two years we have travelled Europe in search of the most authentic, luxurious and durable materials, designers and artisans to bring our collection to life.
We believe we have succeeded and we hope you will be more than satisfied with every single cut & stitch to achieve world class luxury. .
