Founded in the UK by Robin Bennett and Robin Winch back in 2014, British accessories brand Bennett Winch has swiftly become internationally known for putting out some of the best travel gear and luggage around. Be it wallets, watch rolls, bagpacks or weekenders, each piece is meticulously crafted using the finest raw materials—from Italian leathers to solid British brass hardware—and assembled by some of the most experienced hands in England. The final product gives the authenticity and quality of a heritage brand, but with a modern and minimalist sensibility. We love the absence of bells and whistles, busy patterns, or loud logos, giving off the kind of simple elegance that should be enough to inspire anyone to want to travel. Just ask 007—the brand’s Suit Carrier Holdall in olive was featured by Daniel Craig’s Bond in No Time to Die.
Not surprisingly, the company has grown exponentially in their eight short years, with a presence in major cities all over the world. But the jewel in their crown is their flagship store in Saville Row, London, where everything is made in-house and by hand, including the seating upholstered in the same grade Italian leather as their bags.
Below, the designers break down what goes into each product and building a company with a strong foundation.

“We’ve built our business like we build our products: Carefully and meticulously so that it lasts a long time. This isn’t fast-fashion. We know where our products come from and we know the names of the people who handcraft them.”
“Every Bennett Winch product is handmade in England. Using traditional skills and materials, we engineer accessories tailored to a contemporary world. We believe true quality is timeless. If you buy well, you need only buy once.”
“Our products are designed for the discerning minimalist; those who seek to own fewer, better things. We are not driven by seasonal trends or fashion, but are instead inspired by objects of soul and purpose. We only launch new products if we believe they’re solving a genuine need in a way that’s unique.”
“Our confidence in our products is absolute. We personally select the finest raw materials, from Italian leathers to solid British brass hardware, and assemble them with some of the most experienced hands in England. It lets us make a lot of bold statements about the authenticity and quality of our bags, but also lets us make our customers, old and new, a promise: We will take care of any repair work your Bennett Winch bag might need for as long as you have it, provided it was purchased new and directly through our website or one of our official retail partners with proof of purchase.
So, whilst we’re sure you won’t have any issues, rest assured that no matter where you’re heading, your Bennett Winch bag is ready to go with you, time and time again.”
