This holdall is made with heavy-duty canvas that’s bonded with two layers of cotton and a natural latex core. This waterproof material is then cut by hand at the factory, using traditional patterns rather than computer controlled machinery. Military-grade cotton is used for the rolled handles and detachable strap, which is woven in England. The solid brass hardware is cast in London. And the leather trim is also made in England – making each piece an all-English product.

Once the bags are complete, they’re individually checked before leaving the factory and have a personal signature to confirm each has passed rigorous standards.

Fasten the corner flaps down for a more streamlined look. Or add the detachable strap to carry the bag over your shoulder and free up your hands. The holdall features reinforced leather base and brass feet. 

The smaller size can be used as a carry-on and meets IATA dimension requirements; while the larger size is ideal for longer trips. 

Use & Care

Clean with a cloth and soapy water. Allow to dry naturally. Do not machine wash or dry clean.

Production & Design

The founder of this British bag company first cut his teeth as a salesman while traveling around the English Midlands to sell printing equipment. He later worked for a sports bag purveyor and, briefly, at Barbour. In 1984, he began producing his own line of bags from his kitchen – and soon garage, to keep up with the demand. He cut the material and added the rivets by hand, employing a local machinist to do stitching. Not long after, the bags started being sold at Harrods and Liberty’s.

The company is based near the famous Lake District. All the employees are local, and several have been working at the factory for much of its existence. The business also trains younger people to ensure the traditional techniques are passed down to future generations.
