Inspiration for the Savannah?

The designs of David Hicks, India’s father, are the cornerstone of the inspiration for this third collection in our collaboration. So varied, from the extraordinarily detailed to the pared back and architectural, his designs somehow all hide his brilliance in plain sight, with something more still yet to be noticed. Inspired by the deliberate and daring simplicity of the house David built on Windermere Island in the Bahamas – startlingly simple in design, stunningly memorable, and named Savannah.

The Leather

The leather in the Savannah is exceptional. A rich reddish-tan that reminds us of our lovely native squirrels (so we named it Squirrel) it comes from one of our favourite Spanish tanneries. 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. The tannery has received the highest (gold) rating from the Leather Working Group which sets stringent guidelines for environmentally safe leather production, and to which we insist all our partner tanneries adhere. As such, this is a brilliantly sustainable leather bag – no metal parts are involved so it can wholly decompose when eventually returned to the earth, and such responsibly-produced leather, which is already a fully-traceable reclaimed waste product, leaves the least possible footprint in production.

Crisp enough to hold its shape well, yet pliable and warm to the touch, this leather combines the best of both traditional and modern types of tannage, providing a soft and durable yet quite formal leather. The suede reverse side is beautifully prepared and a treat in itself, adding a very luxurious touch to the interior of this bag.

Bespoke & Personalisation

All Tusting bags are hand-crafted in our Lavendon workshop which gives us great flexibility and we can make your bag even more special by personalising it. When you choose personal initials for the Savanah, we’ll pop small initials in gold foil on the inside, just above the brand emboss in the slip pocket, as in this photo. If you prefer another method, we may be able to assist – please just get in touch to discuss.

 So whether it is embossed initials, a personalised message engraved into the leather inside the bag, or even a special colour combination that would make your bag even more unique, don’t hesitate to contact us.
