The Ultimate Leather Travel Bag

Sometimes there’s nothing more luxurious than the smell and feel of leather. Weather it’s a timeless tufted sofa or a handsome leather bag, leather is a material that exudes luxury and quality – and it’s a material that design-guru Timothy Oulton works with oh-so well.

If you’re familiar with Timothy Oulton, you’ll know that his innovative furniture pieces are at the highest quality of craftsmanship – each piece is made by hand to ensure it lasts a lifetime. This level of artistry doesn’t just stop at furniture; in 2006 Timothy Oulton designed his first bag with his love of antique luggage in mind. You’ll find that his bags and accessories range offer the softest of leathers, allowing you to take a luxury Timothy Oulton piece away with you every where you go.

After having a look through all of the gorgeous leather goods, I have come across the all-time best luxury travel companion – the Timothy Oulton Harington Shoulder Bag. Named after John Harington, known as the ‘saucy godson’ of Queen Elizabeth, a courtier, author, master of arts, inventor and general master of all over-achievers.

Four timeless leather colour options are available in this handsome carry bag, my favourite being the warm tan of ‘Savage’. The silhouette and soft vintage leather makes this bag a classic, but it’s what lays beneath the magnetic clasp and zip that truly features Timothy Oulton’s spin on vintage-inspired pieces….

A Union Jack lining is meticulously stitched into the spacious main compartment of the bag, its bold red, white, and blue contrasting against the natural tan of the leather. The spacious interior is large enough to hold all of your sizeable must-have travel items, whilst the two outer compartments – whilst still protected beneath the magnetic clasp – provide easy access for storing your passport, tickets, and phone.
