Mother’s Day, or Mothering Sunday, as it certainly used to be known in the UK, can trace it’s origins back several centuries. Sadly, though, it is now so commercialised that it often seems as though it was something dreamed up by an advertising hotshot in a stiff grey suit. We, however, still think it’s a wonderful occasion to celebrate the often under-appreciated hard-working mums in our life; mums truly do make the world go round and as a family business we see their hard work every day: not just at home, but here in our office and workshop too.
Which is why we’re delighted this year’s Mother’s Day has coincided with the release of our Spring/Summer 17 collection. And to celebrate both we have a very special treat for one incredible mother out there… the chance to have our brand new, and currently un-named, mini saddle bag named after them.
Many bags in our ladies collection are named after strong and wonderful women that have been important to the TUSTING family, and as such we’re on the hunt for someone similarly special: a mum with a story, an inspiring and loving mum who has gone above and beyond to make your or someone else’s life happier. It might be your mum, your grandma, a friend’s mum, a relative or a friend; anyone, as long as they’re a mum and they deserve a big THANK YOU treat this mother’s day.
To honour this very special mum we will name our brand new mini cross-body saddle bag (pictured) after them, and they will receive one of these new bags themselves, finished with their beautifully embossed initials.
The mum’s namesake bag is a future classic made with busy women in mind. It’s big enough for all those essentials: phone, keys and purse, yet handy enough to be slung over the body or shoulder while racing around doing everything mums do to keep the world spinning round.
The eye-catching bag currently comes in our favourite shade of Honeydon Blue and will soon be available in Ballet Pink, Dove Grey and our classic Crimson Red… it’s a real show-stopper for Spring.
What we’d like you to do is nominate the mum you think deserves a huge special treat this Mother’s Day, a thank-you that will last much longer than a pub lunch or a bunch or flowers. All you need to do is outline in 200 words or less why they – and their name – are perfect for the job.
We’ll select our choice of the most deserving mum from your entries, who will win the honour of the bag named after them as well as one of the gorgeous bags to keep, specially embossed with their initials. We’ll also choose three runners up to receive a prize of a TUSTING coin purse and key-ring bundle, also in Honeydon Blue.
