Happy birthday, Both Barrels!

It’s been a big year for Both Barrels since launching our executive luggage, and while many people will be celebrating Christmas and New Year’s, our celebrations started in November as we reached our first birthday.

So we’d like to take a moment to look back over the past 12 months of product launches and developments, industry partnerships and events, and say a big happy birthday – to ourselves!

Designer Luggage with Distinction

We always designed Both Barrels designer luggage to stand out, not with any outlandish visual styling, but with sleek, executive lines, artisan pattern cutting and our ‘hero fabric’ of grey Yorkshire wool.

You can see common design cues throughout our main collection, making a family of executive luggage where each piece complements the others perfectly so you can combine them as you wish.

Our limited editions offer some contrast and cater to those differing visual tastes – the Stealth Series in real-world military camouflage patterns and our newly announced Shadow Series in silhouette black.

There’s contrast within each main series holdall, backpack or laptop sleeve too, with our distinctive purple lining, an instantly recognisable feature of Both Barrels designer luggage that also serves as a visibility aid in low light.

In-Person Appearances

You may have met with us in person at the Best of Britannia show in October, where we were pleased to be able to showcase our commitment to using British materials, suppliers and artisan textile workers.

Our designer luggage has also been featured in Attitude and GQ, while our work with the Wool Campaign promotes the unique characteristics and appeal of British wool, and the interests of the sheep farmers who produce it.

Looking ahead to January, you’ll also find us at Top Drawer 2018 at Olympia in London, a three-day event that starts on January 14th and features producers of homeware gifts, crafts and fashions from over 1,500 brands – and again we look forward to meeting with lifestyle buyers and anyone else keen to see Both Barrels executive luggage up close.
