Tusting on the BBC
The BBC looked to Tusting this week for insight into the challenges facing Britain’s companies as lockdown eases and we get back to a little semblance of normality with our production.
How Tusting is helping the NHS
Whilst we may have been forced to down tools on our leather goods production in recent weeks, the Tusting workshop has nonetheless been a hive of activity at times, thanks to the volunteer efforts of our lovely staff and their commitment to helping the Covid-19 cause and the frontline workers at Bedford Hospital.

The Great Escape
For adventures, for business travel, for weekends away – around the world or round the corner. Our luggage collection gives you a world of luxuriously stylish travel companions to choose from.

Aged 17 years old, he enrolled in the Royal Flying Corps, spending much of his time in Egypt. Returning back to the UK in 1919, Jack found things much changed. During his absence, his beloved grandfather had died and Jack was shocked to learn that his wife had sold off the family business, leaving nothing behind…
