Manchester is rapidly rebuilding its heritage as a major centre of clothing and fashion manufacture and the establishment of a maker of high quality bags, Wright Bower, adds to this revival of the city's historic reputation. Using high quality leather, cotton canvas and hand-finished British hardwoods they produce designs which are different, yet practical and hard-wearing.

Michael Perviz, head of Wright Bower, describes himself as a 'manufacturer who designs' and this approach shows in his products. I've been using one for a few months now and have found their Birnam bag nicely thought out internally and bulletproof in design. An understated elegance makes it ideal for those who prefer their luggage unadorned with initials and logos. A tiny union flag quite rightly boasts its British provenance.

Bags £215 to £325, wallets and billfolds, £76 to £119. See Wright Bower to buy and to read about the team who brings you these quality products. See the video below for more.
This is a video promoting the hand crafted bags made by Manchester manufacturer Wright Bower. Fighting against the throw away society of cheap imports, Wright Bower products are fashioned from English bridle leather, hand finished textiles and English, slow grown Oak, Ask and Walnut.
Made in Manchester is the proud boast for this company, and perhaps we should all value a company that is still producing British goods that really are great.
