Partner (not only) for business trips
From the same material and in the same processing as the laptop bag Croots has made the matching toilet bag, which with its compact size of 23 × 14 × 9 cm is ideal for weekend or business trips and easily still fits into hand luggage. The sturdy 24-oz cotton canvas is waxed, so it's quite durable and water-resistant to a degree. And what the zipper tape suggests (and hopes) when the bag is closed, actually finds its fulfillment inside, as the lining glows at you in the most beautiful, warm siganal red. Croots makes it especially for us from cotton (instead of plastic). The main compartment is not further divided, but on the sides two pockets across the width provide some order. The strap is worked as a loop of 3 mm thick saddle leather.
British craftsmanship. Bags from Croots
The British label Croots is one of the leather goods manufacturers who 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 label "Field Sports Products": in the traditional way and from 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; 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 is done in Keighley, West Yorkshire, the waxed cotton canvas is sourced from the traditional Scottish manufacturer Halley Stevensons, and the fittings come from foundries in Walsall, West Midlands, or Sheffield. Only the zippers are sourced 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.
