About us

At Rissie we are passionate about exclusive colourful handmade bags that make life out and about a little more stylish and fun. Simple design, form and functionality excites us and beautiful fabric patterns, colours and textures make us tick. 

We are based in the vibrant city of Edinburgh in Scotland where we are continuously inspired by the dynamic blend of traditional and contemporary textures.

We hope our bags will make you as happy as they do us.

Our Materials

Our bags are made from from locally sourced leather and predominantly traditional South African fabric called shweshwe.  The fabric is manufactured with an acid discharge process and unique printing technique on pure cotton calico. This gives the fabric its unmistakably waxy smell and crisp texture and has a wide array of vibrant colours and designs. It has been described as the tartan of South Africa.


All our bags are handmade in small batches to ensure true quality and exclusivity.
