The island stretched out beneath the endless sky,

its contours softened by the gentle ebb and flow of the sea. There, the air was imbued with clarity, a purity that seemed to strip away the clutter of thought. On Tiree, time moved differently, marked not by the ticking of clocks but by the rhythm of the tides and the passage of clouds.

a seasonless, timeless collection of artisan bags synonymous with quiet artisanal design and production.
