London Collections Men: Hancock hand luggage

Man bags we love. Anything from Scotland we love. So to mix the two into one beautiful fashion brand got us very excited. London Collections introduced us to HANCOCK, who draw their inspiration from Thomas Hancock, the English inventor who founded the British rubber industry.

Back in the day of 1843, Hancock took out a patent for the vulcanisation of rubber using sulphur, 8 weeks before Charles Goodyear in the USA, and the rest was history.

Hancock Vulcanised Articles are hand-made at a factory in Scotland, to create their iconic pieces, and are very much a modern day twist on a old school luggage classic.
