Clipper

The quintessential satchel, the Clipper is one of our longest-established and best selling bags.

It’s not often a bag can claim to be all things to all people, but we think the Clipper comes pretty close. Stylish, durable and capacious, the Clipper’s a customer favourite and it’s easy to see why. Briefcase, holdall, handbag, flight bag…the Clipper’s whatever you want it to be. We've now added a smaller size to suit those carrying smaller loads (it's perfect for a 13" laptop) and upgraded the interior to make it even more useful.

Dark-brown Miret

The Clipper satchel in dark brown Miret bridle leather makes us think of a wonderfully fragrant cup of coffee in a cosy library. But perhaps we’re doing this spacious, durable and versatile bag a disservice: it’s well suited to anything life can throw at it, not just a quiet afternoon in!

Clipper’s Story

The Clipper is based on a style from our very first collection. A chance conversation with a customer in the USA led to the addition of a top handle and a change to full leather construction on the bag, turning this from a country sports bag into a charming briefcase.

This small and unexpected change gave us the bag that has become synonymous with TUSTING, and a style much copied by other brands since. We named it after the Clipper flying boats: the first aircraft to make passenger travel across the Atlantic possible, and in which Jack Tusting – from our family’s third generation – travelled on his selling missions to America.

Bespoke & Personalisation

All Tusting bags are hand-crafted in our Lavendon workshop. By special order, we can make your bag even more unique by personalising it, or we can 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.
