WrightBower - bags with British hardwood
Our bag, satchel and backpack collection is an innovative combination of natural materials – vegetable tanned saddle leather, cotton canvas (dyed and finished in Manchester) and hardwood.
Every bag incorporates real hardwood parts – Ash or Walnut - grown and harvested in Britain.
Ash is a native British tree. Light in colour and weight, the wood is very durable and has been used for centuries to make carriages, tools and oars. The Walnut tree was brought to England by the Romans. Its darker timber has an exquisite grain and is used by the finest furniture makers.
We cut, hand finish and oil each part to bring out the unique grain and character of these beautiful woods. Each and every one is individual and unique.
No two bags will ever be the identical.
