After nearly a year of design and sampling, our new City range is here and it is perfectly designed to attach to the Brompton C Frame. Handcrafted in Hackney, East London the collection is perfect for the stylish Brompton Rider and as it is crafted in leather it is a completely unique style, new to the market.
Here we highlight the features that make it so attractive.
BEAUTIFULLY CRAFTED IN LEATHER.
We use beautifully crafted satchel leather with full grain leather buckle straps for lasting style. The leather has been sourced from traditional tanneries in Holland and Belgium which we use both for their quality and to limit the distance our materials travel to reduce their effect on the environment. The satchel leather has been chosen for its resistance to the rain and marking, to keep it protected on the ride. If the weather is "raining cats and dogs" we advise using the waterproof cover, which has been made in Devon in the UK.
DESIGNED FOR THE BROMPTON C FRAME
The City range has been designed to attach perfectly to the Brompton C Frame. The design, which took nearly a year to perfect, has a leather "sleeve" where the "C frame" slides into and two velcro tabs hold the bag securely to the frame. The sleeve has been stitched and riveted to ensure it is hardwearing. The bag can be held with the frame handle or with the matching leather shoulder strap, which means it can be used without the frame when carried on the arm. The "Brompton C Frame" is not included but if you do not have it already it can be bought separately on the high street or online.
Together with luxurious leather we use nickel plated brass buckles and metalware for its strength and durability. The buckles are also plated here in the UK, in Northampton, for lasting quality. Our front label is also hand stamped in the workshop in Hackney, East London for the perfect finish.
