I’m so excited about today’s blog topic: The Most Popular Strathberry Bags on the market! The 3 Best Strathberry bags are: East / West, Strathberry Tote, and Crescent Bag. I can't wait to share with you my experience with all 3 of the bags!
I first discovered the Strathberry brand several years ago when my friend came back from the UK with her new Strathberry bag. After doing some research on the brand and their story, I was instantly hooked.
Once I added my first Strathberry bag to my handbag collection, I knew I’d eventually add more. My prediction was correct, because today I currently have 3 Strathberry bags. Before we jump into the best Strathberry handbags, let’s take a step back and look at the history of the brand.
History of Strathberry
Strathberry was launched by husband and wife duo Guy and Leeanne Hundleby in 2013. This brand quickly rose to popularity thanks to the extremely high sourced / high quality leather, affordable price point, and classic, timeless designs.
Known for their signature gold bar closure, today, Strathberry has been seen worn by fashion icons, celebrities and even royalty. As promised, let’s go ahead and dive into the best Strathberry bags!
Strathberry East / West Mini
Number 1 on the list is my personal favorite, and Strathberry’s best-selling handbag: East / West mini bag. The East/West bag features a rectangular design with the classic Strathberry bar closure with an adjustable gold chain strap. This is definitely a bag worth investing in and worth the price!
I added this handbag to my collection a few years ago and it still looks as good as the day it arrived. If you are on the fence about getting the color white, I have 2 Strathberry bags in white and both have no issues with the color fading nor staining. What I love about the East / West Mini is, it's the perfect day to night bag. Meaning, you can dress it up or down depending on what you wear.
The East / West Mini is priced at $645, I highly recommend this bag for anyone who is looking for a timeless design. Many celebrities and fashion icons have also been seen wearing this bag such as Katie Holmes, Meghan Markle just to name a few. Shop East West Bags

|Baguette||1.2″ x 4.9″ x 8.7″||$555|
|Mini||7.1″ x 4.7″ x 2.8″||$645|
|East/West||9.1″ x 6.3″ x 3.5″||$775|
Strathberry Tote Bag
Second on the list is the Strathberry Tote Bag! This gorgeous structured tote bag is definitely worth investing in. I can’t get enough of the timeless tote design. Think of a traditional structured tote bag with a Strathberry signature bar across the top…pure perfection! The high quality leather will ensure it maintains it structured look for years to come. I’ve owned my Strathberry Tote bag for a few years now and it looks as good as the day I got it! I have this bag in a size Nano, priced at $495, it’s so small and cute, I adore it.
However, if you are looking for a bigger bag that can carry more than a small wallet, phone and keys then I suggest going up a size and purchasing the size Midi (Medium Size) or the Tote size, which is the largest size. It's important to note that similar to the East / West Mini, the Strathberry tote bag often sells out quickly, especially the Nano Size!

Strathberry Crescent Bag
I have been eyeing the Crescent bag for a few years now. While it’s one I personally don’t own, it’s definitely on my wish list and probably the next one I will add to my collection. The Crescent bag features a structured design, and the traditional Strathberry bar in a “reimagined twist,” giving this bag an effortless, chic look.
This high quality leather bag features a magnetic closure and has a divided interior. I certainly recommend this bag for anyone looking to add a Strathberry Bag to their collection! The Crescent bag comes in 3 different sizes. See table below

Are Strathberry Bags worth the price?
In my opinion, Yes, Strathberry bags are definitely worth the price, they only source the highest quality leather, their handbags are timeless, and are structurally made. In addition, the craftsmanship on the bags is impeccable! It takes a minimum of 20 hours of work to complete a bag. On top of all that, Strathberry still manages to keep the price point per bag to under $1,000.
It’s so hard to find a high quality designer handbags at that price point. To be honest, I can't say enough good things about Strathberry Bags. I've even featured Strathberry bags in my designer handbag under 1k guide, and five small handbags worth investing in article.

As I mentioned at the beginning of the article, Strathberry bags are growing in popularity every year, and because of this they are in stores around the world. Some of the most popular locations to buy their bags are directly from the Strathberry website, Nordstrom sells Strathberry bags, and so does Saks Fifth Avenue. If you are in the UK, you can shop directly at their retail locations!
