British brand TENT By Esther Porter
Esther Porter’s TENT label takes discarded tents left over from Summer music festivals to create utilitarian duffle bags and satchels, which all bear the hallmark of being designed and handmade in England.
Each TENT bag is individually made, the old fashioned way, using hand cutting and hand machining techniques by Chapman Bags Ltd in Cumbria, England, who have a long history of making traditional British canvas outdoor bags.
Making this brand unique, tent fabric is combined with bonded canvas for strength and water resistance. Vegetable-tanned leather, and British-made equestrian-grade nickel hardware are also used to enhance the utilitarian ruggedness of each bag.
TENT SS12, takes the original tents as the central influence. The primary colours of the tent fabric are trimmed with classic navy, earthy brown, British racing green and school uniform maroon, harking back to retro sportswear and school bags. Classic duffel, barrel, holdall and satchel shapes reinforce the functional, modern take on traditional design.
This years festival tent becomes next years accessory with TENT By Esther Porter, available instore at YMC.
