Our Despatch messenger bag reflects back to days gone by, when a bag was designed to be not only a practical piece of working kit, but also an item of everyday functional necessity.

We studied the needs of the user, and worked on creating a bag with enough room to accommodate all your everyday and travel needs. There were many considerations such as materials, durability, design and practicality, and it also need to look good!

As with all our products, quality core materials were a key focus, and we chose a natural waxed cotton canvas body, made from material supplied by the world’s premier English textile manufacturers who have been established since 1880. To reinforce the bag’s stability, and add additional durability, we then lined our bag with military grade flax. This was used originally as sailcloth for the British Navy, so it’s as hardwearing as it gets!

 

The leather we chose is genuine Horween Chromexcel, from the world famous Horween Tannery.  With a 100 year old heritage, this leather has an ability to alter shades as it is flexed  to develop its own, unique personality. It’s still produced using traditional old world craftsmanship and develops a rich, beautiful patina over time.

Inside the bag we included a handy pocket with a zip closure. Again, concentrating on the details, we wanted the best zip available, so we chose, the original, Talon zipper. We also added a phone pocket and useful pen loops. Solid brass buckles and hardware were used to provide a simple, traditional buckle fastening top flap. As with all our products, your bag is hand made by time served craftsmen in England.

Each bag comes boxed complete with dust bag.
