Stop pickpockets! With the zip on your back, the only way to open this rucksack is to take it off! Made by hand in London.
Perfect for the traveller or commuter, our unique anti-theft design gives the ultimate peace of mind in busy crowds. By placing the zip to close onto your back, only you can access your belongings. We always design for modern life, including a padded laptop sleeve and two internal pockets for your valuables.
Built to last a lifetime, Hawthorn Rucksacks are ethically manufactured by our experienced team in East London, using the finest English leather and 18oz Scottish waxed canvas in classic British colours. The natural water resistance of our materials also protects your possessions from the Great British Weather!
Currently available in Olive, Navy, Tan and Black-on-Black.
Our rucksacks are made from tough 18oz waxed canvas, vegetable tan leather and ‘crossweave’ organic cotton lining, with brass hardware. By using these time honoured materials with the highest quality of manufacture, our rucksacks age gracefully, rather than falling apart by next season. We have a close relationship with all our suppliers, using materials made in the UK or through UK-based stockists who guarantee the welfare of manufacture. For example, our fantastic waxed canvas comes from Halley Stevensons of Dundee, who have been in production since 1864, originally using their water resistant canvas for sailcloth. Our `crossweave' organic cotton comes from a Welsh-Keralan partnership based in Machynlleth. The warm glow of this special weave means you're never searching in the dark inside your rucksack!
Outer: 60% 18oz Waved Cotton Canvas, 40% Vegetable Tan Leather.
Inner: Red-White crossweave 100% organic cotton.
Handwash with cold water, no soap or detergents! As with any waxed canvas product, to maintain the water resistance, simply apply a standard reproofing wax every couple of years. We recommend Granger's waxed cotton dressing.
