The story of Scaral

The concept began as one man's birthday gift for his wife who had been unable to find anything both practical and beautiful to replace the canvas tote she used to carry her laptop. Spotting a chance to look both clever and thoughtful, he decided to make a bag that was more reflective of who she was and something she might love to carry.  

He took the simple shape of that canvas tote and found a factory willing to reproduce it in a colourful leather. 

As it turned out he wasn't as clever as he'd thought - the leather was too thin, the bag was too small and the handle was too short but it prompted so many compliments and enquiries that the idea took hold.

So two years later and with the help and expertise of many others, here we are: 

We produce colourful, elegant laptop bags that are both practical and beautiful,

We make business bags, not handbags

We make our bags here in east London, because it's the right thing to do.

We want to make you happy in whatever you do... by bringing yourself to work.
