Mini Cardington

From: £310

A mini version of our long-time favourite leather crossbody saddle-style bag - chic not shouty, perfectly pretty.

The Cardington is the perfect little shoulder bag - small and sweet yet surprisingly capacious. Whilst rocking a heritage vibe, it's also seriously chic, the contrast stitching hitting a clear, contemporary note. With new design refinements for the Autumn, this is a petite and perfectly-formed mini saddle bag, just right when you just need to carry those absolute essentials and want the perfect accessory to your outfit for the job. This bag works with everything - just as perfect with jeans, a pretty dress or a smart suit.

Cardington’s Story

A bag with true Tusting heritage, the Cardington has been with us in many coats since the beginning of our leather-goods 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.

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.

Available in an array of stunning shades, perfect with every outfit, most are teamed with contrasting stitching to further highlight the quality of these lovely leathers.

We can make your bag even more special by personalising it or create a bespoke colourway from our set of leathers.
