In terms of things quintessentially British, Barbour are right up there with bulldogs and afternoon tea. The brand has enjoyed a resurgence in popularity recently and have started to go beyond the wax jackets that made them synonymous with the great outdoors.
The Rose Tote Bag is a great example of the sort of quality you'd expect from Barbour with a vintage feminine twist. The tan leather accents surround a decidedly summery liberty rose print in very practical wipe-clean PVC, ensuring it won't ruin when you're trudging around the Lake District whatever the summer weather may bring.
The Rose Tote is £129.95 from Barbour. See the website for more details.
