Our Story

Laybrook leather clutches were designed and launched by Clare Dunlop in 2018. As a mother of two little ones, Clare searched high and low for a solution to scrambling around in bulky nappy bags under her pram every time she needed her keys or phone. Finding a pram “organiser” to clip onto the pram was easy.

The problem?

They were all either plastic, brightly coloured or plastered with kiddie prints. This wasn’t a bag for her children – it was for her, and somehow the cartoon zoo animal motifs just weren’t going to team with her existing style. She knew what she wanted – a simple yet stylish leather bag that could effortlessly be attached to the back of her pram, and then just as easily transition into a chic clutch by itself when she was child-free. So Laybrook was born.

Our bags are designed in Australia and made from 100% genuine soft leather. Designed to easily attach to the back of a pram, each bag comes with matching leather straps beautifully finished with brass hardware. Lined in leather makes wiping down spilt milk (and other baby liquid mishaps!) a breeze, whilst an inner pocket keeps your valuables secure.

Outside of Laybrook, Clare blogs, consults as a Child Psychologist and lives in Sydney with her husband, two children under the age of two, and her three tween stepdaughters. Her mission is to remind women that the role of “Mum” is just one of many in their life and not one that needs to be all consuming. Maintaining your own personal style without drowning under kiddie paraphernalia is just one way of not losing touch with your former self.
