    General Information

    When someone takes a trip ...

    ... then he needs not only a stick and hat, but above all a robust travel bag like this one made of strong 18-ounce cotton canvas. And since, in addition to the travel bag, hand or shoulder bags and a toiletry bag are also needed, Croots immediately designed a small series from the dark blue cotton fabric. In beautiful contrast, the zippers and hardware are made of polished brass. The pieces all fit together perfectly and complement each other, but also cut more than a good figure solo, and not only when traveling.

    The large main compartment of the travel bag is not further divided, but (like all Croots bags in our range) lined with the wonderful, bright red lining fabric made of cotton twill. On all inner sides there are pockets, two of which can be closed with press studs. For a good overview, there is a large opening with a long two-way zipper and a flap lid that can be folded down when packing. No matter how heavy you load the bag: Robust, circumferential carrying straps made of 3 mm thick saddle leather are easily able to cope with all weighty contents. A shoulder strap made of cotton canvas is also included, but it can also be removed at any time via brass carabiners. Zippered compartments on the outside of the front sides offer space for small items.

    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.
