  Selected Makers

Angela Coryn

I love making things and the creative use of natural materials has always been at the heart of my work. After more than 20 years working with natural yarns I discovered goatskin and found it to be a beautiful and inspiring material. Each skin is unique and I personally select every skin used for a Grufflebag for quality, texture and colour. I design every Grufflebag to suit a particular skin, to emphasise the unique features of that skin – its colours, thickness, lay and length of hair. Each bag is handmade and hand finished, some incorporating leather backs, kid skin linings and leather cross-lacing. As a consequence each bag is unique, an unrepeatable piece of wearable art.

In 2012 I was honoured to be selected as a finalist at the Balvenie Masters of Craft Awards. The competition was based on many criteria including skill, artistic beauty and sustainability. Being selected was a recognition of the ethos I bring to Grufflebags.  

Grufflebags offer a range of bags for both women and men. As well as a wide range of handbags my range includes phone pouches, messenger bags and holdalls. Grufflebags are available from a number of selected craft fairs and from my own website –
