MATERIALS
Cotton Canvas
Adjustable cotton straps
Vegetable tanned leather details
In 1910, John Boultbee and his son, Wilfred Mason Brooks, filed two patents related to improvements in satchels and knapsacks guaranteeing more equal distribution of loads over straps and more stability whilst cycling. With this in mind, we developed the Barbican Cotton Canvas, featuring a shoulder belt which can be easily secured around the waist in the fashion of a "Sam Browne" belt. Once adjusted, the belt can be kept loose to carried over the shoulder whilst walking. Made from water-resistant treated cotton and vegetable tanned Brooks leather details, the Barbican comes with an internal organiser to keep your belonging safe and tidy. Made in Italy.

MAINTENANCE

Brooks cleaner foam has been developed to clean and restore all Brooks bags’ textile surfaces to their original lustre and shine. To use: Apply a good quantity to a soft cloth and carefully yet thoroughly rub the entire bag. Leave to dry. It cleans delicately. Proofide may be applied to all leather details, allowing it to permeate before polishing off with a soft cloth to avoid getting any on your clothes. *Note: Proofide will darken the leather somewhat which should be considered when using this product.

F.A.Q.

How do I install a replacement Barbican Strap?

When installing a new strap make sure you unscrew all the mushroom heads and when screwing back together apply medium-strength Loctite glue.

How do I clean my canvas bag?

If your canvas or synthetic bag becomes soiled, use a sponge and warm water to clean.
A small amount of Proofide can be applied on leather details.

How can I re-wax my canvas bag?

It is a common feature for canvas fabric to show marks and fading colour with everyday use: it is the distinctive trait that allows to make every backpack unique.
Although it is not possible to bring the colour back to life, you can protect it from fading fast. You can use any fabric wax as long as it is just a rub on one.
