Click on the pages below to see a full list of current fabric choices.  Please check availability as some of the fabrics are only available in small quantities and sometimes the lists can be slightly out-of-date.


You will see that fabrics are usually listed as being suitable for ‘outer’ or ‘lining’ - occasionally both.

Outer fabrics of most products except totes are reinforced with a woven interfacing backing .  Linings are generally padded with a synthetic fleece.  This ensures that bags are durable and have enough ‘body’ to  support themselves.  It also offers sensible protection for precious contents.  All of this is, of course, hidden from view but it is good to know it is there!


Straps are generally of polypropylene webbing, similar to seat-belts.  Strap fittings are in many cases of a durable black acetal plastic with a rubber shoulder pad where applicable.  Some products have nickel-plated steel or stainless steel fittings.  All such components are carefully sourced for quality and reliability.  Turnbutton fastenings are DOT brand and zips are YKK.  Leather straps, where used, are a heavy second-layer split with stainless buckles and rivets.


Please be aware that the colours you see are dependent on several factors, particularly the device you are viewing them on.  They may be slightly different in your hand.
