Date added: 02/06/2015 Give Your Father A Treat With A Rowallan Of Scotland Gift!

Father’s Day possibly originated in Fairmont, West Virginia, after Grace Golden Clayton thought that it would be a wonderful idea to honour fathers and fatherhood.  She had heard about the amazing response Anna Jarvis had to an event celebrating her late mother’s life; and thought she would organise a similar celebration. The celebration remained very low key, partially because Clayton was a shy person and Fairmont was a busy place with many events going on at the same time. 

The concept of Father’s Day was reignited between 1910 and the early 1920s when Sonora Smart Dodd was inspired to celebrate Father’s Day after hearing a sermon about Anna Jarvis.  By 1938 a Father’s Day Council was formed and it took a further 34 years of pestering congress before President Richard Nixon signed the bill proclaiming Father’s Day as a permanent National Holiday in 1972.

Father’s Day is honoured all over the world, with each country marking the day with a different date.  In the United Kingdom Father’s Day is celebrated on the third Sunday of June, which is June 21st this year (2015).  Deciding what to buy your father for a gift can often be challenging and require some considerable thought.  If you bought your father a joke present last year or something you picked up from the local garage why not consider buying him an extra special Father’s Day gift this year.

As it happens we have a wide selection of beautiful Rowallan of Scotland leather bags and wooden valet boxes for you to choose from.

Date added: 29/04/2015 You Don’t Have To Be A CEO To Own A Rowallan Briefcase or Messenger Bag

In the past, briefcases and messenger bags were always associated with the archetypal business man, who commutes to work on a crowded train to an office in the city.  These days briefcases and messenger bags are much more stylized and are used by people from all walks of life.  Laptops and tablets nestle in sections that were once only reserved for files and documents, while smaller pockets have been adapted to keep smart phones and cameras safe.  Obviously business is no longer just the domain of men, as women are increasingly taking on management roles in the workplace.  Briefcases and Messengers bags are still fundamentally masculine in design, due to their straight lines and solid exterior, making them the first choice for anyone who wants to make a strong first impression..

Date added: 14/01/2015 Enjoy the Pleasure of a Rowallan Leather Handbag

Buying a new handbag is considered to be one of the most important and exciting purchases a lady will make.  Often a handbag is viewed at least twice before the final purchase is made. The size of the bag you choose apparently depends on which part of the country you live in.  A study has shown that ladies in London and the south purchase the biggest bags, those in the Midlands medium sized bags and Northern ladies favour small bags.

At Queens Leather we have a wide selection of leather bags made with the discerning business woman in mind.  All of our bags have been carefully crafted in fine quality leather by Rowallan of Scotland resulting in a beautiful finish that improves over time.  Most of our leather ladies’ bags can accommodate an Ipad or Netbook.

Leather Shoulder bags

Balancing our hectic lives can be almost impossible, especially when we have to carry all of our important documents and technical possessions with us. A luxury Rowallan shoulder bag not only looks fantastic, it will also allow you to have your hands free and be the super woman you are.  We have selected three from our vast collection; the first is a stunning twin handled leather shoulder work bag available in black or brandy. Secondly we have a front pocket zip top shoulder bag available in cognac or brown and finally a twin buckle shoulder bag available in tobacco.



 

Leather Shopper bags

When you are on the go finding somewhere safe to store your purchases can often be a challenge.  Selecting a Rowallan leather shopper bag will solve this problem and enhance your outfit at the same time.  The three Rowallan shopper bags we have selected combine practicality and style perfectly.  Available in brown or cognac this leather shopper bag will encourage you to shop until you drop, if you prefer a more compact style this beautiful cognac colour Rowallan shopper bag will make you smile. For those who like to prowl around the shops this designer leather animal print bag by Rowallan will certainly make you purr!


Leather Satchels

Originally associated with going to school and carrying homework book and a pencil case we used to be relieved to hang up our satchels for good.  Fortunately the crafty satchel did not want to be cast to the back of our minds and has fought back by being a retro style item that shows that we have great taste when we use it to carry our work gear.  Instead of carrying a homework book, a satchel can safely carry an Ipad without worrying about it getting damaged.  The three beautiful Rowallan leather satchels we have selected today are; a lovely leather satchel bag available in green, brown and plum.  A brown leather half flap satchel bag and a lovely leather satchel bag in cognac.


If you are debating which type of leather bag to buy you are welcome to visit our site as often as possible and you may find the bag of your dreams.
