2013/2014
BAGS FOR A BIG LIFE
Hello and welcome from the Tusting family.
We are thrilled that there is such a resurgence of
interest in Britain’s manufacturing talents and, as a
heritage company at the heart of this for nearly 150
years now, we remain, more than ever, committed
to our way of doing things.
We believe that making our fine leather goods in
our own English workshop puts us in the privileged
position of being able to give every single piece
we create our individual attention.
Moreover, it makes us totally accessible to you – the
owner of our creations – for advice on anything from
choosing the right piece, through caring for it, to
repairing it after a busy life if it becomes (as most of our
bags do) a treasured friend not to be parted with.
ORDERING IS SIMPLE, USING OUR
WEBSITE AT ANY TIME
