Cherchbi English union bags

April 23, 2012

I first featured this Cumbria based, UK luggage company back in January with a look at their Herdwyck No.10 Tweed collection (find that here). I thought I’d feature this fantastic brand once again, with a post about their other range – English Union bags.

A union cloth is pretty much as it sounds – a union of two fibres, joined together through the weaving process. In this case the fibres in question are a cotton warp and linen weft, woven to produce a herringbone weave for the brand by Ian Mankin in Burnley, Lancashire.

This finished cloth is then bonded with natural rubber to cotton lining, which results in a unique, naturally robust and waterproof cloth. Added to this are trims and straps produced from a 3mm black vegetable-tanned and chrome-free saddle leather and solid brass hardware, all of which continues the use of premium materials.

The range consists of a range of styles, from laptop sleeves to satchels, rucksacks and even larger pieces like holdalls. Finishing touches include a discrete ‘Cherchbi’ and ‘British Made’ blind embossed into the leather and each piece is hand-stamped with a unique serial number, before being delivered in an unbleached cotton dustbag.

For more information on the brand, or to buy online visit the website here: Cherchbi.
