LAKELAND LEATHER +44 (0)1539 439 020 Lakeland Leather’s story goes back more than 60 years, when Jack Standring opened his first shop in the Lake District. Now the UK’s largest leather retailer, the company is still family- owned and still based in its Lakeland home. The company has always had a passion for leather goods and uses its experience to craft unique items. Having industry- renowned access to the leading suppliers allows Lakeland to source the best leather. According to the company: “Every hide we buy is unique and needs the eye of an expert to get the beauty to reveal itself. We keep our leather natural and soft-to- touch, just as Jack insisted all those years ago.” The Hunter holdall sits perfectly within this ethos and is an all-time customer favourite. Crafted from rugged nubuck, the collection carries a worn-in look and will get better with age. Ideal for a long weekend, Lakeland has created a spacious holdall in which to carry all your essentials and more.The rich tan colourway and antique brushed brass-effect hardware give the collection a real point of difference. Complete the look with the matching toiletry bag.
