Dyeing for our waxed canvas bags?

Dyeing for our waxed canvas bags?   A few days ago I signed off the colours for summer production, signing off colours is important, yet very very difficult when you don’t have the item in your hand. I manage this by putting my trust into my man on the ground, using a combination of trust, emails, photos and […]

How to explore and look good: camping, festivals and outdoors…

Climbing Clee hill - with Ten Ball Backpack

We recently took a day out to visit the RADAR station atop the the Clee Hills – Titterstone Clee Hill. Scouting locations for photoshoots has become a bit of a hobby, each weekend it seems a new location gets mentioned, Clee Hill has been on the list for some time. When you first arrive it’s […]

Working to create the perfect everyday bag

Working to create the perfect everyday bag Have you ever looked at your bag first thing in the afternoon and thought, I really hate that bag? It’s falling apart, there’s half of what used to be a banana ‘somewhere’ in there, and what is that strap for*? No? Well I did… *a pickaxe I’ve worked behind […]

Waxed Cotton Canvas

Cotton Canvas – Making cloth I do love requesting things, and I love being vague doing so. So when my inbox pings with a new video straight from the factory I never really know what to expect. Last year when the concept of developing a full range of mens bags came about, it was crack of […]
