Backpacks

In an increasingly fluid world, busy working lives built around commuting efficiently & with style, our twelve backpacks present an insightfully designed, UK made solution. We build our bags from the ground up & design our packs around real life requirements. Our aesthetics are shaped by the product’s function, in keeping with the Danish design philosophies which influence our practical sensibilities.

The twelve backpack design is available in three distinct fabrications. Our flagship triple layer bonded Yorkshire wool, Jordanian Airforce Camouflage (Stealth Series) & 350gsm antique waxed cotton (Shadow Series). The Yorkshire wool offers a statement outer with high performance qualities. The Jordanian Airforce Urban Desert Camo is graphically disruptive & offers military grade performance. The antique waxed cotton offers a lighter weight body with a discreet aesthetic. All of our fabrics are water resistant, highly durable & robust.

All of our products are manufactured in the UK. We source our fabric & as many components as possible from the UK too, including the military grade cotton webbing straps & hardware. Our supply chain map is shown in the ‘About’ section of this website.
Each backpack is fitted with YKK zippers, sliders & pullers on both the generous main compartment & small items pocket on the front panel. The main compartment features twin sliders with leather pullers whilst the front pocket features a single leather puller.

Inside the main compartment is a padded laptop or tablet sleeve with elasticated corner braces. This solution allows various sizes of device to be secured & stored without adding any unnecessary weight. To the front face of the padded laptop sleeve is an elasticated mesh slip pocket. This allows convenient storage of notepads, pens & paperwork.

The panel configuration of the design allows a great deal of flexibility in packing potential inside the main body of the bag. The innovative shaping allows a pair of training shoes or change of clothes to be packed comfortably without compromising either function or aesthetic.
Every backpack features military grade cotton webbing adjustable straps which are trimmed with leather. The Italian cast four bar sliders allow smooth adjustment & secured straps. Each strap has a thumb loop for quick & easy adjustment. A leather haul loop is secured to the top panel for alternative hand carrying.

Each backpack is lined with a bright purple cotton twill. This brings both a high quality, luxurious finish to the inside & an illuminated compartment allowing your belongings to be easily located throughout packing & unpacking. Each product is also trimmed with our signature ‘Built in Britain’ woven label.
