Oughton Limited make a range of waxed canvas bags with leather trim and bronze fittings. These are exquisite bags inspired by a “life lived with horses” and the need for a lighter alternative to the tack trunks used by equestrians.
The line began with the Tacktrunk Bag. Daphne Markcrow, founder of the line, describes the beginning, “I designed it for my own use and had it made by a saddle maker out of waxed canvas and leather. I also loved the look and functionality of the materials. Waxed canvas turned out to be the ideal fabric for luggage: lightweight yet very strong, breathable yet waterproof. I loved that the fabric had history too.
A bag like this is designed to last making it perfect for the wear and tear of traveling. The Overnight Bag II pictured above (there is an Overnight Bag I without the white blaze on the side) is sized at the maximum airplane carry-on size and features tan nylon lining, a dust bag for storage and an 8 inch handle drop. The handles and stress points are reinforced. Oughton bags would make a great heirloom.
I love how these look.
