Emberton’s Story

The little village of Emberton gives our new backpack its name. Lying just over the river Great Ouse from our local market town of Olney, Emberton is one of our favourites – it is home to a wonderful riverside country park but is also the place Alistair Tusting first set up home when he returned to join the family business, being handily placed for a very short commute to the Tusting workshop. Used once before in a very early collection, the name Emberton was given to another Cardington-style bag, so we thought it appropriate to reprise the name for this stunning new backpack.

Bespoke & Personalisation

Looking for an Emberton in a different colour? 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.
