A Country Style Business Bag from Tusting

Friday, July 28, 2017Charlotte in England


A Country Style Business Bag
Founded in 1870

The perfect bag for carrying your laptop and pretty much everything else you could ever need.

That beautiful moment when you find your very own Mary-Poppins bag... What do you do? Instantly fall in love with it? Well, that's what happened when I met my Tusting Porter Satchel.

Not only does it fit my laptop (and charger, and two external hard-drives) it also fits in my lunch, purse, makeup, notebook(s) and all my worldly possessions (like my camera, umbrella, hair brush, hand lotion... the list goes on)

"Love the brand, love the bag!"

This bag could win an award for the most amount of essential belongings could you possibly fit inside a bag. I've been using this as my go-to work bag for a couple of months and it has certainly served my needs. Oh, did I mention, it looks great too? 

If like me, you love a good looking vintage bag, Tusting's beautiful 'Crazyhorse' leather will be perfect for you as it has a lived-in look that will only get better with age.




"Our stunning and very distinctive Crazyhorse leather is the one to choose if you like your bag to have a lived-in look right from the start. It is our toughest leather – take it anywhere, do anything, again and again."
- Tusting

Who are Tusting?

"The story of the TUSTING brand begins in the 1870s when the development of the sewing machine was revolutionising the shoe making industry in England. This innovation lead to the rapid emergence of dozens of brand-new factories dedicated to shoe manufacture. A young labourer with an entrepreneurial spirit, named Charles Petit, saw that these new factories would need more and more leather to fulfil the demand for their shoes. He seized the opportunity to capitalise on this need and founded a leather tannery to provide for it."

"Nobody knows more about leather, our craft is our passion."
- Tusting

Material & Design

The strap is detachable, so you have two options - sling it over your shoulder (or cross-body) or carry it with the handle on top. You'll look stylish either way.

The bag features two front pockets on the outside of the bag which are really handy. Inside, there is a slip pocket (good for storing your laptop and documents inside) and also one on the back too.

There is also a pocket for your phone and pen pockets. The inside is made from cotton. I just love the interior of the bag.

To close the bag, use the stud closures and you're good to go.

Why I love it My thoughts

The style of the bag is classic and beautiful. It is not a 'ladies' handbag but a super practical business bag. Don't get me wrong, I love a nice pretty handbag but this Porter satchel is very handsome and charming without screaming for attention. The understated design needs no fancy branded logo. You can tell it's a quality bag just from the moment you set your eyes on it. The leather is beautiful and it has been crafted to perfection. 


The high quality luxury leather smells divine and I just adore how practical it is. This is a reliable bag that will accompany you on your journeys and adventures (not just business related but also ideal for shooting, walking, the school run and travelling) and I will honestly keep it forever. The fact is has been hand crafted here in Britain just makes me adore it even more...

"We expect our products to last a generation and hope they will be handed down."
- Tusting

The Porter Satchel is suitable for both men and women of any age. I could imagine a stylish older gent rocking this bag as well as a classy mum of two kids (imagine how many baby wipes you could fit in there...) or a younger woman like myself who wants to retain the country look in an office setting. 

Oh and... Tusting have kindly embossed my initials onto the bag. How brilliant is that? Love the brand, love the bag!

Thank you so so much Tusting for making this beautiful luxury business bag fit for both town and country.

Do you own any Tusting products? 

All my love

Charlotte
