Haven't you heard? Craft is back.

Now a whole new generation are knitting, sewing, glue gunning in their free time and getting hands on with fashion.

But for those without the Kirstie Allsopp make-do-and-mend gene, designer bag brands have embraced the trend for you - no pin cushion required.

Olympia Le-Tan hand embroidered book bags have a celeb following



From Roksanda Ilincic's chunky knitted bags for their AW14 collection to Dolce & Gabbana's basket weaving shoulder bag, both the processes and materials are harking back to craftier times, but with thoroughly modern day price tags.

The rise is part of a bigger trend for quirky bags - a fun antidote to the sleek and sophisticated.
