The Quentin Tote forms part of a unique collection of bags that harness the potential in the wool of the rare breed Herdwick sheep, reared on the mountains of the English Lake District. We have used our custom tweed, that is milled and woven in Yorkshire and combined it with the finest Italian craft leathers to produce a skillfully executed collection of modern classic bags.

We believe in natural, sustainable materials and the quality inherent in them. Although Herdwick wool is typically very difficult to process it has unique qualities relating to durability. To this end we have created an innovative fabric that provides a naturally water resistant membrane while at the same time offering functionality and natural elegance.

All RUSKIN bags are designed and developed with passion and manufactured with precision by traditional bag makers in Italy. At RUSKIN we hold the greatest esteem for these hand crafted arts and we aspire to play a role in protecting their legacy. By fine-tuning the formula of quality, tradition and luxury our bags appeal to the design conscious, discerning customer who appreciates provenance, enduring elegance and a quiet style.
