Cardington’s Story

A bag with true Tusting heritage, the Cardington has been with us in many coats since the beginning of our leathergoods brand. This cute shoulder bag is named after the Bedfordshire village where the R100 and R101 airships were built in staggeringly enormous hangars.

The British equivalent of the Zeppelin airships, these incredible creations represented the golden age of travel, linking Britain to the four corners of the world. It always raises a smile that, despite being named for something so enormous, the Cardington is one of our smallest bags. It’s also one of our most popular – and it’s not difficult to see why.

Here’s a page from our very first bag brochure, showing the Cardington in its first form.

Bespoke & Personalisation

All of Tusting bags are hand-crafted in our Lavendon workshop. Most are made to order which gives us great flexibility. We can make your bag even more special by personalising it or create a bespoke colourway from our set of leathers. So whether it is a personalised message inside the bag, embossed initials or a special colour combination, 
don’t hesitate to contact us.
