About us

If we said it started with a bag of nineties origins, but with of-the-moment appeal, it could only be the ‘bum bag’ (said in a whispered voice.) Nasty fabric and 90’s throwbacks aside the idea of a bag that frees up your hands to get on with your life feels more relevant today than ever.

Far from being about here-today-gone-tomorrow trends. A fashion statement that is a classic in the making. Now that's what we are about.

Founded in 2014 by our big chief Lisa Robertson after looking and failing to find a stylish ‘bum-bag’ for her travels…

Amazed by the lack of choice in the market and the fact that the only solutions out there for a wearable bag were practical (yet ugly), Lisa set about designing her own bags that delivered just as much style as substance. With substance in mind, Lisa made a conscious decision to manufacture the bag in the UK, to keep valuable skills alive in England and to make sure we can make the quality products that you quite rightly expect.


Expertly crafted and made in England, our bags are bold and fresh and unafraid to make a statement, although rest assured a large amount of tea was consumed in the development of the range.


Simplicity is under-rated - we believe that great design doesn’t have to be complicated. We also believe that quality is not optional - so we invest in beautiful materials now that get even better with time. Not traditional. Not cutting edge. Just beautifully designed.


More than anything we stand for the importance of getting on and living. That’s why all of our products start with trying to make everyday a bit easier (and stylish of course!)

Linked to our commitment and belief about creating bags that are designed for living, we also are proud to support the Pink Ribbon Foundation, an amazing organisation that supports those whose lives have been affected by Breast Cancer and in funding research to help less people suffer in the future. Our small gesture is to commit to donate £5.00 from every bag sold on lisa-lemon.com.
