The Leather

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. The leather is (like all our leathers) aniline dyed, meaning it is coloured right through in the tanning process, not simply painted on top with pigment. This then allows for a light coating of surface waxes so that the natural feel and character of the leather is still available to feel and see. We source this leather from one of our favourite Spanish tanneries which has received the highest (gold) rating from the Leather Working Group, a control body which sets stringent guidelines for environmentally safe leather production, and to which we insist all our partner tanneries adhere.

Kimbolton’s Story

A style that has been a staple in the Tusting collection for many years, and originally a simple open tote bag, the design and features of the Kimbolton have been updated and refined many times. It’s now a fully-featured, work-friendly handbag. (It can also be supplied in a larger size by 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.
