The Bridge Purses


The Bridge Purses are all available here in our shop in Bradford, West Yorkshire, we think we are one of the few authorised retailers covering the Leeds area too.

The Bridge was established in Florence in Italy back in 1969 – it is probably word of mouth brand that you don’t see in major high street stores, it has a quality luxury niche at a reasonable price compared to the major brands out there.

Their trade mark is a Chesnut coloured leather that is tanned and dued using tree bark and leaves over many days in Oak barrels – a very traditional way of doing things these days.

The leather is then hand finished using a tradtional amber roller application which is rarely seen in modern production methods.

The Bridge Purses come in many different forms, this is a simple Frame purse.

The frame is made from brass, it has a simple bobble style claspe, twist them open and you have a nice size coin secction, The Bridge change the lining of the purses sometimes, it can be eiather the bridge logo lining or sometimes they use a plain cotton lining

The codes used for the purses – or in fact all the bridge leathergoods relate to the model, leather and the colour.

for example the code 017689-01-14 can be split down in to three component parts.

017689 – is the model style of the purse

01 – is the leather – this is the classic analine leather we all know and love

14 – is the colour – chesnut brown

Colour number 14 can vary in colour depending which leather is used, so just make sure if you need the classic chesnut it needs to be in combination with the 01 leather.
