Born from the hustle and bustle of Manchester, Kurtis Paul represents the true gentleman. Specialising in luxury men’s bags and accessories.
Brothers Kurtis and Lloyd Rayner felt the frustrations of the luggage market and wanted to put their creativity to good use, revitalising this tired market. Kurtis Paul was born in the summer of 2015 in the back-street of Manchester, England, and hints of this amazing city can be found within our high end designs. We have carefully created three beautiful collections which we believe will integrate perfectly into the daily lives of the modern gentleman.
I have always seen myself as a bit of perfectionist, constantly seeing items from clothes to bags and more, and imagining what I could do to enhance and make the items unique. Since launching Kurtis Paul it has given me the opportunity to design high quality bags from scratch, ensuring every little detail is finished off to a tee. I am constantly using my imagination to come up with unique and new designs as this is when I am at my best.
Fuelled by creativity I have a desire to bring style into the world. I have a passion for industrial design and love the heavy duty, oversized look and the space which comes with it. From a young age I was infatuated with building and creating; we laugh about it around the dinner table but to keep me entertained at the age of 5 my mother would sit me down with some cardboard and sellotape. I would be entertained for hours. This creativity hasn’t faded with the year and although I have moved on from cardboard I am still at my happiest when designing.
Creating the best using only the best materials
Leather: We carefully selected a luxurious top grain cattle hide, sculpting this natural material into a range of different designs.
Canvas: A super thick 20oz cotton canvas was chosen to emphasise the elegance of our Canvas Collection. We wanted to create a range of casual bags that would emphasise the wearer's appearance.
Fixtures: To give our bags an industrial, hard wearing appeal we finished with a selection of strong brushed brass fixtures.
