Dedication to craft: Millican launch Wainwright backpack
 

Wainwright caught the spirit of the land, absorbed it through his footsteps and translated it with his pen. He stitched together waypoints, mapping paths for a hundred generations hence, interpreting the wonder he found. Wainwright wove a record of singular devotion, a unique dedication to craft and his Lakeland home: Seven books. 13 years. 214 fells.

For many, he will forever reside in the silent depths of Innominate Tarn, at the summit of Haystacks, a life writ large across the fells. Millican celebrates the unusual power of this commitment in a unique collaboration – a hand made backpack, made in the UK.

The bag is made in the UK. Halley Stevensons 12oz canvas is used for the outer fabric. The inside is lined with Harris Tweed from the Isle of Lewis. Hand-finished, veg-tanned leather finds its way from Whitehouse Cox, in central England and it’s all gathered and assembled, by hand, in Sheffield.

Other features include two external expansion pockets with buttoned closures, adjustable padded shoulder straps, a leather grab handle, a crafted leather yokeback patch, an internal padded laptop pocket, an external bottle pocket and two internal pockets. It is available in ‘Slate Grey’ and ‘Rust Red’.
