With all the talk of Simone Rocha, JW Anderson and of course the accessories stalwart, Pauric Sweeney, it can seem as if Irish designers are 10 a penny; but when it comes to Irish designers you can afford to buy into, it’s a harder slog.

Which is why I was so delighted to spot Ana Faye‘s handbags in Kilkenny. This Irish designer has created a range of Italian leather bags in classic shapes and gorgeous colours to suit – well, let’s say most - Irish wallets.

This cobalt blue embossed leather tote is €195, for example, which isn’t exactly budget-busting, but is pretty damn good value for a leather handbag. The cross-body bags (top and below) are €149 each and come in a range of colours. Well worth a look.
