Ragsto Bags are all recreated not created.   Instead of seeing unwanted furniture, tents, fabrics, even inner tubes from bicycles going into landfill sites they are skilfully upcycled into new lives as leather luggage & bags for travel, commute, work & leisure.  You wont believe their histories….

All Ragsto Bags are handbuilt in Marlow, England to last another lifetime and are, all, beautiful.
