Hand Shoulder Bag Unisex, Dark Blue
Compact space miracle, flexible companion
From a strong, dark blue 18-ounce cotton canvas, Croots has immediately produced a series of bags, to which this small space miracle also belongs. Because of its compact format of W 30 × H 16 × D 13 cm, it has a very favorable ratio of external dimensions to volume. In its large main compartment, the space can be fully exploited, it is not further subdivided, but has only on the long sides of two tidy pockets. As with all Croots bags in our range, this one is also lined with a cotton twill in a strong signal red, so that everything is easy to find. The bag is closed by means of a brass zipper carefully piped with leather.
Particularly practical: the bag can be worn both on a shorter hand strap (made of strong saddle leather) and on an infinitely adjustable shoulder strap (made of cotton canvas), both straps can be removed if necessary via brass carabiners, so you always have the choice: Hand, shoulder or crossbody.
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.
