From the founder

“At my grandparent’s house there is a magnificent lion rug I have always admired. It was a gift from Ernest Hemingway. When I asked my grandmother how they met, she showed me a photo album of a boat trip between Plymouth and Bombay dated 1933, complete with a signed photo of Hemingway kneeling next to his kill on an African plain. It’s an incredible record of a time when travel was seen as a life experience rather than the quickest way from A to B. The album inspired us to create a collection of travel bags and accessories that recapture that spirit of adventurous travel.”
