RUSKIN is a bag brand by a small independent team with an innovative spirit, passionate about quality design and traditional craftsmanship. The brand and team believe in the use of natural, sustainable materials and the quality inherent in them. They believe in the high-class artistry, in traditional bag making, and specifically the skillful execution of the exclusive materials to create elegant lifestyle pieces. All the bags are hand made and to this end all RUSKIN designs are crafted using age-old techniques passed down from previous generations. The vision for RUSKIN is led by the designer Alli, who has a passion for innovative design using a fabric she has created, to meet modern design rigour. Originally from the Lake District in Northern England, Alli draws a lot of her inspiration from the colours and landscapes of that region to give RUSKIN bags their charismatic individuality.
