British based accessories brand Tusting offer the ultimate in on the go sophistication with their ‘Grafton’ laptop briefcase, a legal-sized bag that will stylishly see you through the morning commute to afternoon meetings and back again.
The origin for the ‘Grafton’ came from the demands of the fiercely loyal Tusting customer base that yearned for a sizeable accessory that would cover every aspect of their eclectic lifestyle. Sartorially sharp and feature filled, the ‘Grafton’ is a large, top-zip brief available in the Tusting’s coveted ‘Sundance Floodlight’, ‘Miret Bridle’ and ‘Crazyhorse’ leathers.
The ‘Sundance Floodlight’ is Tusting’s flagship leather (and a personal favourite). It is aniline dyed with a high wax content in the tanning process for a waxy top finish that shows off all the character of the natural grain.
“This leather starts with a matt/satin finish that combines conservatism with originality. Over time the very waxy nature of this leather matures into a wonderful patina with a gentle sheen.”
‘Crazyhorse’ is a highly visual and distinctive leather and an icon of the brand. The ‘Crazyhorse’ leather has a lived in look right from the start, perfect for those who like their bags “to look like they have been a bag for a long time.”
The leather it hot-stuffed with oil in the tanning process and requires next to no care, even when exposed to harsh conditions:
“The traditional harness and saddlery leather, Bridle is tanned wholly with vegetable extracts. The result is a firm feel and superior strength and stretch resistance.”
Split into three OCD-pleasing compartments the Grafton briefcase comfortable holds your laptop (up to 17″ in a padded central compartment), masses of files, papers and documents as well as notepads, stationary and, quite possibly, the kitchen sink. (The Grafton measures up at 18 x 3 x 6″)
The Grafton also features additional external and internal slip pockets as well as a phone and pen pocket. Complete with detachable shoulder strap for when the load gets too big for toting by hand, the Grafton is accented with antique brass details for a look and feel that is synonymous with Tusting’s heritage:
Priced at £555 each, the ‘Grafton’ is a true investment piece that will stand the test of time. As an owner of Tusting products, I cannot recommend the quality and design enough.
