One question that equine handbag company, Tucker Tweed Equestrian, hears quite often is “What are your best sellers?”


Founder Jill Tweedy was surprised with their year-end results. “We knew what our favorites were among our team at Tucker Tweed, but they played out among our retail partners and clients as well. Surprisingly, our smallest and largest bags were neck and neck for a tie at the end of 2018.”

Which pieces found this coveted top spot? The James River Carry All and the Wellington Wristlet.

What do you think draws riders’ interest in the James River Carry All?

Jill points out, “We consider this handbag the draft cross in our stable of purses, it simply carries it all well. Finished in Saffiano leather for its durability and water resistance, this purse is quite generous in size and easily handles all of the daily essentials. The choice of 4 different colors and 4 disciplines seems to appeal to many women.”

The other piece in the Tucker Tweed collection nailing down the top spot among stylish equestrians is the Wellington Wristlet. This petite leather bag is part wallet, part clutch. The wristlet has a refined, lined interior including a zipper pocket, credit card holders and a separate pocket for cash and other items.

Jill Tweedy shares, “the big appeal with this wristlet is it’s adjustability. It arrives with both a shoulder strap for cross body use, a wristlet strap for convenient wrist carry, while both can be removed so that this piece can be enjoyed like a clutch.”

The Wellington Wristlet is now available in 14 color options including the “Influencer Series”, new colors that debuted this spring with input from four top influencers in the equestrian world.
