Ready for everyday use, these backpacks are multi-pocketed and offer space for your laptop. Have your everyday essentials by your side in satchels and cross body bags like Jeremy and Francesca. All bags are water-resistant and durable, casual but design-led. Waxed Cotton is a group of trustworthy and iconic bags designed in Shoreditch.

This traditionally manufactured water resistant British Waxed Cotton fabric was originally developed for mariners from as early as the 15th Century. The Hybrid Aero waxed cotton is a robust Waxed Cotton with a water based finish applied. This gives the fabric a dry handle, with no transfer and can be cleaned with a damp sponge, so for many users it has the look and feel of a traditional wax but with far easier care and maintenance characteristics.

The performance of the fabric is equal to the traditional waxed cotton and the Aero finish gives the fabric a slightly worn/distressed look which adds to the character of the fabric.

The dyes used on these cotton fabrics are not as stable as on synthetics and some gradual fading can be expected from exposure to light.

Always allow the item to dry thoroughly after use, in a cool, airy environment. Never pack away damp.

Beware of colour transfer from the leather on base onto lighter coloured clothing or fabrics and vice versa. Read less
