The story of the Tusting brand begins all the way back in the 1870's. A young labourer with an entrepreneurial spirit, Charles Petit, saw there was an increasingly bigger demand for leather so he founded his own tannery and become a master in leather making. His only daughter, Elizabeth, married her childhood sweetheart John Tusting, and the luxury leather brand was born.

A century down the line and the Tusting philosophy of making unique leather products that stand the test of time is still part of the company's DNA. A stone throw away from the site of Charles' original tannery lies the Tusting workshop: an ideal location to draw in the talent of local craftsmen, whose families understand the culture surrounding the Tusting's heritage & identity.
