In the Tusting workshop in Lavendon, North Buckinghamshire, which lies close to the original tannery founded in 1875 by the great, great, grandfather of current CEO, Alistair Tusting. It is home to a new generation of highly skilled craftsmen and is perfectly placed to draw on the considerable talents of local leatherworkers, many of whose families also share in this heritage. Being wholly responsible for their own manufacturing, Tusting also offers a repair service for their bags which enables even greater longevity.
Tusting only uses the finest quality, leathers processed especially for them by partner tanneries and where possible, these are sourced in the UK. The hides are coloured using aniline drum dying, which enhances the intensity of the colour and guarantees longevity. The result is radiantly beautiful, traditional hides which effortlessly satisfy those ever-present requirements of modern life – practicality and durability. Cotton canvas is specially sourced from UK manufacturers, highest quality fittings are from UK and global suppliers and all zips are made by the Swiss company RiRi, to ensure excellent durability.
