Frances is the 90’s style, must-have wardrobe staple that everyone should have. Inspired by Auntie Frances, she was the jet-setter of the family and always had an air of under-stated cool about her. Frances can be worn on your shoulder, across your body or as a clutch. She is the perfect bag to go from day to night just by unclipping the strap and not too big or too small just perfect!
Expertly handcrafted in England from super soft, durable and light-weight British sheep leather.
The leather for our bags is of a carefully constructed strength, with a special WR100X water resistant /repellent finish which dries off soft. WR100X performance leather has a structure which maintains its natural breathability, beautiful look and butter soft feel.

Although we do not recommended it, some of our customers have told us they have used a protective spray on our leather. Most light marks can be removed using a damp soft cloth and we would recommend you keep your bag away from oil-based products. If your bag does come in contact with oil-based products, we have found a little corn starch and a damp cloth can help remove marks and prints.

If the lining of your bag becomes marked it can be easily cleaned with a little soft detergent and a damp cloth.

Meet The Designer

Taylor Yates is a brand very personal to me and my daughter, Ellen.

I grew up in Lancashire in the North of England, and thought I was destined to work for other people, but my life has taken me from Warrington to London to Northern Ireland and from working for a large manufacturing company to running a family business.

I realised that my Nana, Alice Wells, had showed me another way. She started in service in Yorkshire in the 1920’s but went on to run 2 or 3 businesses from her home. We spent every summer there as children and sometimes I accompanied her on buying trips to the wholesalers, Mr Leeman’s in Manchester. She was tenacious as well as being fiercely independent and I have hopefully inherited some of her hard working northern grit.

It takes determination, resilience and a lot of hard work to be in any business today and I was reminded of the strong Lancashire women that guided me and gave me the freedom to choose. The bags are fittingly named after those great women in my family.
So how did we get here, a t-shirt business, a lecture in ethics in marketing, a changing world where people need brands to be more transparent. The realisation that I was looking for something that was missing in the market. A conversation with Ellen, and the design of the first bag.
