Kimbolton’s Story

Originally designed as a sober briefcase for the discerning Japanese market, the Kimbolton left its serious origins behind to come and flirt with our ladies’ handbags! We realised that – fashioned in a range of gorgeous colours – this beautiful bag was perfect for the working woman who needed a little more space and structure than a traditional handbag could provide.

Initially intended as a simple open tote bag, the Kimbolton has been refined time and again. It’s now a fully-featured, work-friendly handbag, and is available in the original, larger size to special order.

The name Kimbolton comes from a famous local village, just over the border into Cambridgeshire. This charming locale is home to Kimbolton Castle, the final residence of Catherine of Aragon after she was divorced by Henry VIII, now home to a private school. The village is also the base for the world-famous Kimbolton Fireworks company (founded by a former chemistry teacher at the school – lots of fun in lessons, we imagine!).

Bespoke & Personalisation

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