In Focus: The Millbrook
Backpacks have been around for the best part of 100 years, existing in almost unlimited iterations, from the most basic nylon to the most expensive designer vanity piece, but few have as much personality as our new Millbrook. Sitting nicely between our Seaton and Clifton backpacks, it’s the epitome of simple luxury. Although understated, the generosity of the interior and the adroitness of the craftsmanship cannot be overstated. The Millbrook is enduring, perfect for those with a varied life who are subjected to the ebbs and flows of the modern day. As we prepare ourselves for the (unusually welcome!) moment when we can swap our short stroll to the home office for our daily commute rather further afield, the Millbrook becomes the ultimate companion.
We’ve chosen to offer the Millbrook in a choice of our two most luxurious leathers – the rich Chestnut tone of our fully vegetable-tanned Italian grainy leather, Elba, or the unctuously soft Montanasoft leather in Black, or Pewter and Chocolate combination.
Our Elba leather is the modern Italian-luxury equivalent of traditional saddle leather. Sturdy and genuine, Elba leather shrugs off the bumps and scrapes of daily life and quickly develops its own beautiful patina, making each bag more personal and unique to you over time.
Made in Germany, the Montanasoft is an aniline-dyed (dyed-through) leather crafted using modern tanning techniques to achieve its exceptionally soft and buttery feel, without compromising on strength, endurance or resilience.
Both are premium, full-grained leathers that are created to really last and complement the strong construction of the Millbrook.
The styling of the Millbrook is pared back, with a single zipped compartment and an exterior front slip pocket. Lined in our Century collection’s air-force blue jacquard twill and embellished with elegant gold or silver T-motifs to match the cleverly aligned zip, the Millbrook is as stylish as it is functional.
The generous interior boasts a myriad of pockets: a padded laptop slip pocket, a zipped security pocket and two smaller slip pockets, in addition to the large internal compartment. The densely padded straps ensure comfort on the go, wherever you go. Whether you’re carrying a laptop, an encyclopaedia or the anxieties of an upcoming meeting, the Millbrook will be your partner in crime. If you decide to load up or keep it light, the Millbrook will remain sturdy, effortless and chic.
Named after the famous automotive testing ground a short distance from the Tusting factory, our Millbrook embodies a similar ethos. It’s a distillation of our continuous quest to provide our customers with the optimum balance of form and function, resulting in brilliant performance.
Flirting between the lines of luxury and simplicity, the Millbrook is a testament to Tusting’s craft: timeless and classic in silhouette, luxurious and meticulous in construction, effortless and stylish in practice.
