Each RUSKIN bag is hand crafted in a workshop in Rome by a small team of artisans whose skills are born out of the traditions of patience and dedication to their craft. We believe strongly in nurturing and protecting the work of these artisans whose time-honoured precision processes and brings superior hand crafted quality with lasting and continued relevance.

At RUSKIN we are concerned with detail, with every precise stitch, every hand painted edge, every tuck and fold, trim and cut which represents generations of experience that testifies to a time gone by.

Artisanal excellence is a human aspiration and achievement that comes from creating with passion, care and uncompromising attention to detail. Although it is a notably old way of doing things, and a much slower time and labour intensive way of doing things, we believe that this is what makes each RUSKIN quite remarkable and what ultimately brings an exceptional level of refinement.

The leathers for each RUSKIN design are carefully hand selected for their rich grain, texture and colour with distinctive markings that impart unique character. With their varying textures and shadowy furrows, the surfaces are unique to genuine leather and produce a product that is mindful of its provenance rather than one that is engineered.

With sincere admiration and gratitude to our artisans and friends in Rome who work tirelessly to produce each RUSKIN bag.
