The Freeload Accessories Story

Specialising in designing and handcrafting fashion-led leather bags and accessories, Freeload Accessories was established in 2006 by designer/maker Debbie MacPherson.

Debbie began her career as an apprentice handmaking leather shoes in Cornwall, before moving to London to study an accessories design degree at the prestigious Cordwainers College were she was able to vastly extend her making skills and explore the concept of fashion and design.


All Freeload Accessories are individually handcrafted in Debbie's South Devon workshop using only the highest quality Italian leathers and substantial saddlery fittings.


"The quality of the product is paramount, I believe in 'Slow Fashion', in this world of 'throw away' items I aim for my designs to be classic, wearable and to become like a trusty old friend."


As well as the ‘ready to wear’ range, Debbie also offers a bespoke service, whether it's an adaptation to an existing product or a brand new design especially for you. 

The Freeload Accessories workshop is based in the beautiful surroundings of Cockington Court Craft Centre in Torquay, visitors are always welcome.
