We always use British Woven Tweed and prefer to use 100% Wool Content. We constantly search for the best quality Tweeds in terms of heritage, quality and style in order to bring the very best to you are customers.
As part of our manufacturing proccess we technically enhance our Tweed by bonding it to a waterproof backing, This gives the material more body and increased durability in order to meet the demands of the modern world.
We use a Quality Poly-Cotton Canvas that provides the best qualities of both the natural and synthetic materials combined. Our Canvas will mature with age, but retain its durability, fresh texture and appearance for many years to come. To further enhance it we laminate two layers of the canvas with a natural rubber central membrane. The result is a 100% waterproof material which still maintains its distinctive style and character, with greater weight and structure.
Duffel Bag Canvas
Our new Duffel Bag Collection blends colour character and functionality. We use the Poly-Cotton Canvas combination in a variety of bright and vibrant colours, but have taken this a step further incorporating an anti fray PU coating on one side and a fluro-carbon on the other side. This creates a fully water repellent and stain resistant material.
We use British sourced leather for our bags and accessories including the binding and trims. The leather is vegetable tanned, full grain and beautifully aniline coloured all finished to the highest standards.
We use slick hard wearing brass zips on most of our bags. We occasionally use a quality nylon zip particularly on the inner pockets of some bags, this is not a compromise on quality, but a choice of functionality and nature of the items it is likely to come into contact with.
Fastenings and Fittings
Many of our clips, buckles and rings, etc. are manufactured to the highest standards and sourced from local companies that have rich histories in the supply of brass fastenings and fittings to the trade. In some situations we will use quality Nylon fittings, dependant on the application of use.
Padding and Dividers
We utilise a range of impact absorbing materials and where appropriate use them for internal padding and dividers to provide protection for laptops and other such valuables. These incorporate various types of plastazotes and soft open celled foam. We also take care to make sure these materials are water resistant and are usually covered with a wipe clean lining.
