The world’s most adaptable range of Luxury Bags & Accessories. Inspired by my grandfather Ted Carbery, who made leather bags & accessories using his mouth and left hand, since 1942.

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. As a result he lost the use of his right hand side, was left speechless and he lost his memory. Ted’s road to recovery lasted 3 years and for the rest of his life he continued creating leather pieces that served his community whilst continuously smiling. He documented every step of his recovery 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. Yes our bags & accessories 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 view each collection as a story, one that you can personalise and attach to your life and your heritage.

Ted’s work

We spent years studying Ted’s work, noting key features and details that we would include in our designs. We let the design ideas come to us over time, nothing is rushed. “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” We combine uncompromising luxury and ultimate practicality in everything we create.

Luxury Materials

For the past four years we have travelled Europe in search of the most authentic, luxurious and durable materials 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 our uncompromising luxury standards.

“The purpose of a bag has not changed. How we use them, what we put in them, and how we commute with them has”

MNIT logo (2)

My Name is TED was born. The story of TED did not just inspire the name, it inspired the logo, branding and design vision too. The hand in our logo is a left hand which signifies each of our creations are handcrafted and that Ted relearned how to do everything with his left handed. If you look closely at the centre of the letter E in tEd there is an arrow pointing from right to left symbolising my grandfather’s quest and determination to crossover from right to left-handed to make his leather goods in such a unique and inspiring way.
