The Kimbolton Bag from Tusting - Handmade in England

All Media by Salt Water New England
The Tusting family has been in the leather business in England for five generations - since 1875 - first as leather tanners and today as handcrafters of fine leather bags and accessories.

Their Kimbolton bag, shown here in Tan in size Large, has been enormously popular for years, and it is easy to see why.  With its classic style and roomy interior, substantial handles, lovely style and quick and easy access.  

All of their bags are handmade in England.  Lovely bags made by lovely people.  

Some other Tusting products to note

For men, the hugely popular satchel/briefcase/flight bag/holdall:
Also for men, the classic canvas travel holdall:
For women, the 1950s inspired bag:
And also for women, the classic Cardington saddlebag-style bag.


  1. A superb bag! Thank you so very much.

  2. Videos bring things alive. Thanks!

  3. I've have a small Tusting Clipper brief bag for years that has held up beautifully despite the years of use. I was a bit concerned that the fabric lining would fray, but it has not.

  4. These are classy products and a great range of interesting colours too .

  5. Beautiful bag it is!

  6. Who won the draw for the Tusting Kimbolton large Muffy ?

  7. I may need to investigate this brand more closely, given the current state and quality of Coach bags.
