Alfred Wainwright caught the spirit of the land, absorbed it through his footsteps and translated it with his pen. He stitched together waypoints, mapping paths for a hundred generations hence, interpreting the wonder he found. Wainwright wove a record of singular devotion, a unique dedication to craft and his Lakeland home. Seven books, 13 years, 214 fells.
For many, he will forever reside in the silent depths of Innominate Tarn, at the summit of Haystacks, a life writ large across the fells. Millican celebrates the unusual power of this commitment in a unique collaboration; a hand-made backpack, crafted in the UK.
From Dundee, Halley Stevenson 12oz dry wax canvas forms the outer fabric, lined inside with Harris Tweed from the Isle of Lewis. Hand-finished, veg-tanned leather finds its way from Whitehouse Cox, in central England. All gathered and assembled, by hand, in Sheffield – a bag crafted from these Great British Isles.
