Takes on everything, endures everything. Croots for travel enthusiasts
The travel bag from Croots is made of strong, waxed 24-oz cotton canvas and can easily cope with any trip: On the outside, it is not impressed by mechanical stress, moisture or wetness (in moderation) - on the inside, it has plenty of space for clothes, shoes and toilet bag. The large main compartment is not further divided and beams at you - like the laptop bags of similar design - with signal red, lightly padded lining. This not only looks good, but also makes it easier to find your way around inside, as nothing disappears in the dark. In addition to the zipper straps, Croots - especially for us - has also kept the detachable carrying strap in a bold red. In two zippered pockets on the short outer sides you can store smaller items.
For the carrying handles Croots has used 3 mm thick saddle leather, so the bag can be packed heavier. Two circumferential straps made of the same leather additionally stabilize the body of the bag.
British Craft. Bags from Croots
The British label Croots is one of the leather goods manufacturers that have virtually earned the reputation of a traditional company in a short time. So it doesn't always take centuries of experience, but first and foremost you have to understand your craft and then use the right materials. This is what John and Margaret Smith had in mind when, in 1978, they produced the first bags and cases for hunting and fishing under the "Field Sports Products" label: in the traditional way and using solid materials such as strong saddle leather and robust cotton canvas. Later, travel bag and small leather goods are added. When daughter Jackie and son-in-law Allistair Croot took over the business in 2004, they changed nothing about it, except for the name. Since then, "Croots" has become a byword for British craftsmanship and solid bags worldwide, and even the royal family owns a few Croots bags.
The bags are designed and manufactured at the company's site in Malton, North Yorkshire. The materials also come from the island: the weaving takes place in Keighley, West Yorkshire, the waxed cotton canvas is sourced from the traditional Scottish manufacturer Halley Stevensons at Croots, and the fittings come from foundries in Walsall, West Midlands, or Sheffield. Only the zippers are sourced by Croots from Riri in Switzerland. Finally, the leather is vegetable tanned and processed in the best saddlery manner. Mostly it is so-called English Bridle Leather, which is mainly used for saddles, bridles and belts, because it hardly gives thanks to a special tanning.
