Any UK-made courier bags out there?

Hi, i'm looking for a courier bag, and while there's stacks of high-quality, non-sweatshop, American ones about that I'd happily pay for, i'd prefer to support a local company...

Any ideas?

Thanks

J

If tax and customs duties are what you are worried about you can always order from EU sources. I've ordered quite a bit from this place and am very happy with their service and prices. The site is organized a bit strangely, so check out both links.

In the vein of this question - anyone know what Canadian made bags are out there.

I came across an outfit in Montreal at one point ( can't remember the name) but their bags were probably not what I was looking for.

Any ideas??
