Yep I was about to say they're only written in Biro, a lovely touch though. :becool:

I've only got a synthetic Carradice pack, so I've missed out; but I've heard about the names!

If I do get one, I hope they take the space of "hand made" :whistle:

Carbon fibre... LMAO!!!
Emma made mine.
There was a huge thread on yacf (I think) where lots of folk listed the ladies who made their bags.
Emma seemed a rarity. Maybe a newish member of the carradice team.
It's a nice personal touch in a world of mass produced stuff.

I love my carradice saddlebag I now use it as a bar bag for those big picnic days, I have just reproofed it and it looks as good as new

Maybe Emma got the boot after not getting the hang of it?

(yes, YACF was where I read about this!)

My bag has arrived, but I cannot read the name on the label!

EDIT - and as soon as I posted I flipped the label and it clearly says Sue on it - I don't know what the other scrawl is - the person who checked it I suppose?

My Sue is my oldest at about ten years old.
Good to know that Sue is still going strong and in my experience she makes a damn fine saddlebag
