September Competition Time: A beautiful Tusting bag

September 4, 2016
Explorer Medium Blue

September has arrived and with it, the end of summer. As we get ready to say goodbye to long summer evenings and the smell of lingering BBQ smoke,  there’s a feeling of excitement in the air. Perhaps it’s memories of going back to school, with a new pencil case and shiny new shoes, but this time of year has always symbolised for us the chance for new beginnings, rediscovered focus and a time to shake off the sleepy summer lull. So, what better way to kick-start our favourite season than with a brand new competition?

This month, we’re thrilled to be collaborating with the luxury leather brand: Tusting. A family firm set deep in the English countryside (and in the little market town that Laura lived for a few years!), Tusting have dedicated the last 130 years to creating beautifully crafted leather bags and accessories; ideal for any traveller hoping to ditch their backpack in favour of something a little more refined. A favourite brand of Kate Middleton, this is a company who know how to create quality and distinctive pieces.

So, if you’ve always fancied yourself a sophisticated traveller, or just want to channel a bit of Kate Middleton (because, who doesn’t?) then you’re in luck. This month we’ll be offering one lucky follower the chance to win one of Tusting’s Explorer Holdall, worth £370.

Explorer Medium Blue

Perfect for a weekend break or for using as cabin luggage, the Explorer Holdall is as durable as it is gorgeous. Can we win our own competition?
