It’s the perfect bag for summer adventures.
Now Kinsale Leather has released a brand new update on its much-loved hands-free Belt Bag.
A staple since its launch, the bag has just enough room for your wallet, phone, keys, and a lippy and is worn across the chest or around the waist so it’s perfect for travel, shopping, and warm nights of bar hopping.
And if you’re thinking of splashing out for yourself or someone special, the Belt Bag is now available in two new soft suedes – Souris, a warm stone taupe, and Moss, a fresh verdant green (both €139) – as well as in the brand’s signature pebbled leather Granite Grey and Chestnut.
“Being able to offer our favourite styles in different textures and materials is really exciting to me as a designer.” Kinsale Leather owner Dee Mangan told us.
The belt bags join the organic linen Market Bag, a roomy multi-purpose tote, and the Jo Work Bag, which is back and available in some exclusive summer colours inspired by gentle summers on Sherkin Island, West Cork.

Following the success of their first fragrance collab, Kinsale Leather has also teamed up with Lucy Hagarty of La Bougie perfumery Kinsale to create Kinsale Suede, a new sister fragrance that will be available later in the summer.
Lighter than the oud-based Kinsale Leather scent, it’s designed to mix with your body chemistry and be slightly different on each wearer.
“So individual but familiar, like picking up a soft jumper one of your favourite people has been wearing and it still smells like them,” Dee explains.
“The fragrance and the bags will change with use and over time, really become part of the person who uses them, perfectly unique to the wearer. That’s what we love so much about this collection.”
All the bags in the collection are available online at kinsaleleather.com or in-store at 46 Main Street, Kinsale, Co Cork.
We can’t think of a better staycation souvenir.
