As of this February, CRU London's leather handbag and backpack collection is proudly stocked at Ruskin in Whitstable, Kent, a wonderfully alternative and sustainable clothing store along the east coast.
Named after John Ruskin, the leading English art critic of the Victorian era, the store has built its foundations on the critic's belief that "Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort". CRU London shares the same belief and aims to create an authentic, quality product through the use of natural vegetable tanned leather only and sustainable craftsmanship. Therefore, we feel our collection couldn't have found a better home for itself, being stocked among niche brands such as Sunspel, J Shoes, Maya Magal and Hiut Denim.
If you are after a selection of exclusive, sustainable brands all under one roof and a highly individual, customer focused service then Ruskin is the place to go. The owners Shelly and Garrie Keeys know the brands and collections inside out so will be in a good position to advise and provide you with a second opinion.
Currently there is only a small selection of our range available in store, including our Gordon backpack, Appleby bucket bag and Willow Weekender, so please do give them a ring beforehand if you're after a particular design.
