‘Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag and smile, smile, smile...’

The Kit is a collection of beautiful, strong carry goods, inspired by our maker lifestyle in Cornwall.

For travelling to hidden workshops, exploring rocky beaches, and packing for surf/camp trips. These bags and accessories are made to be minimal, organised and ultimately durable.

Each design uses re-purposed materials from a standard British army surplus kit bag. The aim is to give the canvas, hardware and webbing a new and longer lifetime. It's a reverse process where the materials directly influence the design so nothing is wasted.
