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