Born In Britain: About Us
Who We Are
Born In Britain was developed from an idea that Katie had before the birth of her first child. Looking for a good quality leather baby bag to carry all of the baby equipment in proved to be a difficult task. The widely available cheap, plastic and nylon baby bags offered a 'function over form' solution that did not inspire her to put down her nice leather handbags. Instead she used one of her large leather handbags. The bag carried everything that she needed but was not a functional solution. Having spent several years working for a large UK company producing bags for many of the leading high street brands, Katie had many great ideas about what the bag should look like, the features it should have and how it should perform.
"The designs on the high street at the time I was looking, were bright plastic and nylon. Why should being a mum mean that I want to carry a pink plastic bag with flowers on? I wanted a good quality leather bag that would look good on days in the park and also at a restaurant." - Katie, BIB Founder
Once Katie had her ideas, she approached her former colleague Laura who has an incredible background in handbag design and has produced designs that have become bags on the shelves of all of the major UK high street brands. Laura used her experience to put together some stylish designs that would fulfil the design brief.

These features making it perfect for newborns through to those active toddlers who may need the security of a nappy on hand during the potty training stage.
Even after the youngest has grown out of nappies, your Born In Britain bag is still a functional and beautiful bag. Due to its styling, it becomes a great everyday handbag, simply remove the 'pop off' change mat from the rear pocket and you have an easy access iPad pocket.
