Pedal & Brass designs and creates handmade leather bags that attach to your bike like a pannier, but with the beauty and style of a handbag or briefcase. Every item is handcrafted by us in Cambridge. We love to create sustainable limited edition bike bags using leather leftover from the footwear and leather industries which might otherwise end up in landfill. Our "Waste Not" range of small leather accessories ensures we keep our own leather waste to a minimum too.
Pedal & Brass is a Cambridge-based business that designs and creates handmade leather bike bags. From crossbody bags and totes, to boardroom bags and bucket bags, they are all made here in our cycle-loving city of Cambridge. Designed to clip on easily and securely to bikes using KLICKfix pannier hooks, these bags have the function and security of a leading pannier but are far too beautiful to be called panniers! Stylish and made to last, we think they are perfect for popping on your bike and taking to work, the pub or wherever your cycling journey takes you!
Whenever possible, the leather we use is surplus stock from the footwear and leather industries - beautiful, but often destined for landfill. As a small company, we can buy small batches of surplus leather and therefore create both sustainable and exclusive "limited edition" bike bags.
Our Waste Not range of accessories (including key rings, cable tidies and bookmarks) are created from surplus leather from both our own bike bag production and that of the industry generally, meaning we continue to keep leather waste to a minimum.
All of our bags can be bought without the pannier clip system - for those who love our bags but don't have a bike, and all of our leather items can be personalised - creating that unique and special gift.
All of our Pedal & Brass products are designed and hand made by us in our Cambridge workshop. We make to order with care and attention in every detail, using a combination of traditional and modern leathercraft techniques.
Not only are our leather bike bags and small leather goods made by us in Cambridge, but so too are our bike bag rain covers and dust bags!
Our leather is sourced from UK leather merchants and our hardware comes from both British and Italian suppliers. We will always try to source a component from the UK before approaching international suppliers.
