Developed to be comfy and practical, the Aliya Bag has a large main pocket, perfect for everything from snacks to keys, with a handy smaller pocket to keep your phone and purse close to hand. Sewn using a specially woven Oscha fabric which has been developed by our British Mill to be the optimal weight and density to give the Aliya Bag a sturdy feel without being bulky.
A unique, bronze Oscha ring, based on the traditional Scottish Annular brooch used to hold cloth and tartan clothing, decorates the Aliya Bag. Originally designed by Silversmith (and our own Marketing & Events Manager), Hannah Eccles, each ring is individually cast in a traditional foundry in Great Britain. The golden rings securing the straps are also made in Great Britain.
Pinatex, a plant-based leather alternative, is used for the straps and base of the bag. Sustainably sourced and ethically made, this vegan fabric is made from pineapple-leaf fibres for a luxurious natural fabric which has a low environmental impact. Water-resistant and with a gorgeous textured look this fabric is a wonderful addition to our Aliya Bag.
