Our new messenger bag is a collaboration with CHERCHBI – a company who share our belief in timeless, understated and functional design, underpinned by impeccable craftsmanship.

Each bag is bench-made for us in Somerset, England – entirely from start to finish by one skilled maker.  We use 24oz waxed superdry canvas from Halley Stevenson of Dundee, Scotland; robust leather which is vegetable tanned exclusively to our specifications by Joseph Clayton of Derbyshire, England. The hides derive from a Northern Irish cattle herd.  In time the hand-forged brass hardware – which we source from Cheshire, England – will dull to a beautiful patina.

Internally a range of useful pockets will securely hold magazines, A4 stationery, technology and all the usual stuff of your daily commute, leaving the main compartment free for your lunch, a camera, or a 13″ laptop or iPad. Unusually, we have used the same super high quality canvas for the bag’s interior, ensuring consistency of aesthetic and longevity of construction throughout.

We have made just a small batch of these bags across three coloursBlack; Navy and Olive – and have individually numbered each one.

They are entirely British made – from hide to tannery; foundry to workshop.
