The perfect little shoulder bag - small and sweet yet spacious, the Cardington is also seriously chic, our own little gem. A petite and perfectly formed little saddlebag-style bag, it is perfect for keeping your essentials close at hand when you’re on the go, just the thing for a hands-free day out. With new refinements for Autumn, we have added subtle stitch and contour details and all bags have a hidden magnet under the buckle for easier use.

The Leathers


Crafted from carefully selected hides, and with a softly polished finish, our glossy Atlantic leather allows the natural beauty and richness of the hide to show. A perfect leather for handbags, it is light, durable and yet beautifully natural.


Our Chestnut leather is a full-vegetable tanned leather. A firm but supple feel with strength and stretch resistance, in a leather whose appearance matures and improves over time in the most classic way.

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. Currently available in two great sizes, 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.

Bespoke & Personalisation

All Tusting bags are hand-crafted in our Lavendon workshop 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.
