Like a bespoke suit, the material for each bag is hand cut on the premises and constructed using traditional methods.
We spare no expense with our core heritage bonded canvas material, which is multilayered, waterproof and robust, with a natural look and feel. It is dyed and bonded in England.
Many of our leather components require hand stitching and crafting using traditional saddlery skills, producing an authentic finish unlike mass production machinery.
Our bags are machined by hand, a skill requiring years of experience and producing a quite different effect to mass produced, computer controlled machinery.
We use solid brass hardware or, where a silver finish is specified, nickel plated brass, neither of which pit or rust. Most of our hardware is cast in London, England.
We use 100% cotton military grade webbing, which is woven in England to colours specified by us to match our bonded cotton canvas.
We use traditional patterns for cutting, not computer controlled machinery. Each bag is in some way completely unique.
Our standard leather components are manufactured using traditional clicking knives and English vegetable tanned bovine hides.
