A great icon of the English fishing scene, the Izaac Walton Hotel in Derbyshire’s beautiful Dovedale, came to be closely associated with the Tusting family in the 1920s when Jack Tusting took to holidaying there to fish on the Dove and Manifold rivers.
Jack took his family along of course, and his young son John became friendly with the daughter of the hotel owners, the Evans. In fact, John and young Jane Evans became childhood sweethearts, later married and are the parents of the current (fifth) generation of Tustings at the helm of the Tusting company ship! We think Walton is the perfect name for this vintage-inspired backpack.
Bespoke & Personalisation
All of Tusting bags are hand-crafted in our Lavendon workshop. Most 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.
