TENT by Esther Porter Autumn/Winter 2012 collection

September 6, 2012

I first featured Esther Porter’s TENT range back in April last year (find that here), so thought it would be good to take a fresh look at them and their latest collection for Autumn/Winter 2012. As I’ve stated before, this particular range takes discarded tents left over at Summer music festivals and from them creates utilitarian duffle bags and satchels.

Every TENT bag bears the hallmark of being designed and handmade in England, and each piece is individually made, using hand-cutting and hand-machining technique by Chapman Bags Ltd. in Cumbria, who as you no-doubt know by now, have a long history of making traditional British canvas outdoor bags.

In addition to tent fabric, the label also utilises bonded canvas for main panels, canvas webbing for its straps and vegetable-tanned natural leather for it’s trims and fixing, plus British made equestrian-grade nickel hardware. All of this combined not only makes for great looking luggage but also enhances the strength and durability of the bags.

The bags are colourful but muted, with blue, green, grey and red tent fabric mixed with classic air force blue and light khaki canvas.This collection will be available from this month with stockist including YMC and ASOS. If you’d like more information on the brand, go to the website here: Esther Porter.

    What a nice idea. I’m quite partial to the blue one.
