Our Story

"We are purveyors of fine carry goods; beautifully designed with everyday practicality"

The Barrels of London brand was born on a trading floor in the heart of London, from our desire and our passion for a better daily carry. Previously in the world of investment banking, we longed for a daily bag that didn't compromise aesthetics or practicality. A bag equally at home in the boardroom or the pouring rain; that could effortlessly transition between work and leisure. We sought durable handles and zips that wouldn't let us down. Smart design features and plenty of capacity.  

So leaving our city careers behind us we set out to create our first bags as we worked towards our vision for Barrels of London. We harmonised fine materials and artisan craftsmanship with British design, function and practicality. The pillars of the brand today.

Purposefully Elegant

We are purveyors of fine carry goods; beautifully designed with everyday practicality. We take great pride in achieving this perfect duality.
Taking inspiration from iconic barrel bag design, our collection of luxury mens bags and accessories, complements elegant style with purpose and function. Fit for the modern, discerning gentleman. Our vision for Barrels of London is perfectly encapsulated by our slogan "purposefully elegant". 

Materially Different

At the heart of Barrels of London is the calibre of our materials. We have meticulously selected high quality suppliers that share our vision and understand our brand.

As a British brand it is with great pride that we source our cotton twill and canvas from here in Britain. The quality and distinct properties of the cotton are essential to creating the luxurious yet highly durable finish of our bags.

In our quest for excellence, you'll notice we have paid close attention the finer details. Our polished metal hardware is not only beautiful aesthetically but is pivotal to ensuring our bags are highly durable and crafted to last. Luxurious RIRI zips provide an unrivalled level of decadence and reliability. This high end producer of zips have a rich heritage and globally renowned reputation for creating nothing short of excellence; zips of the highest quality.
