Our Story

Butterfly Tree the brand represents the simple, timeless qualities that make good designs great.

It’s an ethos that stood at the very heart of everything I did when I launched the company two years ago in a small Yorkshire workshop, selling bags through word of mouth, and it’s an ethos that continues to inform everything we do now.

With stockists across the country, a fantastic range available online and in store at John Lewis and a collection consisting of 7 classic designs  available in 6 colourful wools, we have come a long way in a short time, and we can’t wait to see with what the future holds.

Made from quality Yorkshire wool and leather, Butterfly Tree bags are made in Britain and feature clean, classic designs matched with unique and vibrant linings; think fresh Lemon Peel and a tasteful Vintage Blue.

I’m Claire Shakespeare - I am Butterfly Tree bags. I live in Yorkshire with my husband and daughter. With the love and support from my family and friends I have managed to create Butterfly Tree, bags that you will love for a lifetime.
