    You no longer give away

    And you do not have to, because this backpack Croots has made of neatly strong, yet supple cowhide, so that the beautiful piece will accompany you for many, many years. This brings the small disadvantage that the backpack is not exactly one of the lightest models. For this you will be rewarded with every look and every handle to the backpack with its extraordinary feel and look. The cognac-colored leather will become increasingly supple with time and use, taking on the patina typical of the material - and only becoming more beautiful.
    Once again (as with all Croots bags), it's particularly worth taking a look inside, where the lining fabric - woven from cotton especially for Manufactum - shines in bright red. In the undivided main compartment there is a wide slip pocket as well as leather two smaller slip pockets and a pen pocket. On the outside of the backpack is a small pocket with cartridge pocket closure, the flap of which has been carefully trimmed with leather, just like the large backpack flap. The leather of the carrying and closure straps is with 3 mm even slightly stronger than the body leather, is therefore processed open-edged and thus withstands the frequent stress of carrying or opening and closing for a long time. For the shoulder straps Croots has chosen softer cotton canvas, which are therefore comfortable to the shoulders.

    British craftsmanship. Bags from Croots

    The British label Croots is one of the leather goods manufacturers that has quickly acquired the reputation of a traditional company. 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. John and Margaret Smith made this claim when they produced the first bags and cases for hunting and fishing under the label "Field Sports Products" in 1978: in the traditional way and from solid materials such as strong saddle leather and robust cotton canvas. Travel bags and small leather goods were added later. When daughter Jackie and son-in-law Allistair Croot took over the business in 2004, they did not change anything except 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. And the materials also come from the island: the bags are woven 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, with a few exceptions, the leather is vegetable-tanned and processed in the best saddlery style. In most cases, this is so-called English bridle leather, which is mainly used for saddles, bridles and belts, as it hardly gives thanks to a special tanning process.
