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 characterful 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.

The Leathers

Aztec Crazyhorse

Our distinctive Aztec Crazyhorse leather is the one to choose if you like your bag to look like it’s got a few stories to tell! Hot-stuffed with oils during the tanning process, this distressed appearance leather has a lived-in look and is our very toughest leather.

Sundance Floodlight

Our signature business case leather, Sundance Floodlight is aniline-dyed side leather with a high wax content, which is infused during the tanning process, and a waxy top finish that showcases the natural grain.
