User-first design

We obsess over the details. And we work with a focus on what you need and use, rather than unnecessary bells and whistles.

Sussex-made

Working locally means dramatically less carbon pollution, better communication, quick iterations, genuine passion and many laughs together.

Local-first sourcing

We select all materials based on quality, cost AND distance — a metric we hope more will begin considering as well.

Organic + FCF

No pesticides. No waterproofing toxins. GOTS-certified canvas for environmental and social wellbeing. Scottish-made since 1864.

Small batch production

Working in small batches allows us to focus on each bag we make AND avoid overstock and waste. Winning.

But it's not just design that matters.
We're working to make all goods in the best possible way,
with the best possible materials.

1/6

Details obsessed

From the tension of the stitching to the exact length of the zips to the shape of each zip pull (they're not all the same size), we obsess over the details. We believe in putting the work in now, so each bag will be enjoyed as long as conceivably possible.

2/6

User-first

We work with a focus on what you need and use, rather than unnecessary bells and whistles. Less is most certainly more.

3/6

UK-made

Working locally means dramatically less carbon pollution, better communication, quick iterations, genuine passion and many laughs together. All bags made from start to finish beside the South Downs.

4/6

Local-first sourcing

We select all materials based on quality, cost AND distance — a metric we hope more will begin considering as well.

5/6

Organic + FCF

No pesticides. No fluorocarbons and waterproofing toxins. GOTS-certified canvas ensures environmental and social wellbeing. The mill we use in Scotland has been treating canvas since 1864.

6/6

Small batch production

Working in small batches allows us to focus on each bag we make AND avoid the overstock and waste that's part of large productions. Winning.
