Made in England MADE IN ENGLAND

We make all our bags in our Tannery Road workshops in Carlisle, Cumbria. In this respect, we are one of the only truly authentic British bag companies. This commitment to manufacturing offers our customers significant benefits.

Made to order MADE TO ORDER

One of the benefits of making our own bags is that if you cannot find the bag you want in our standard range, we can make a bag to your own personal specification. It could be just a simple colour change or a completely new style.

Craftmanship CRAFTSMANSHIP

We use traditional hand crafted manufacturing techniques including hand cutting, machining and finishing. The process is not unlike making a bespoke suit. We only use materials of the highest quality, wherever possible sourced in Britain.
