A TALE WORTH TELLING

Their story

Built upon decades of proud, painstaking British heritage, Thorndale was originally founded by a husband and wife duo in the back room of a small English textile shop. Fuelled by its self-taught founders' determination and passion, the brand's humble beginnings grew to become one of England's pioneers in textile manufacture, specialised in the use of heavyweight materials such as waxed cotton and nylon. In an ode to its roots and the expertise that the brand first became known for, Thorndale specialises in beautifully-made work, travel and leisure bags for the modern man.

QUALITY IN THE MAKING

The process

With roots harking back up to 1957, Thorndale proudly celebrates authentic British craftsmanship and generationally honed expertise - which is why the brand sources its materials locally, and carries out both design and production in its very own family-run Staffordshire manufactory. Best known for its purposefully-designed, beautifully-handcrafted travel gear and daily-use bags, Thorndale combines elegance and functionality in its collection of accessories for the modern man.
