Millican is an outdoor lifestyle brand that specialises in sustainable bags for independent spirits and eco-conscious travellers. The company is the brainchild of husband and wife team, Jorrit and Nicky Jorritsma. They first met while travelling in the 1990s, and later became inspired by Millican Dalton, a legendary maverick from the 1900s who swapped London life for adventure in the mountains of the Lake District. In 2008, Jorrit and Nicky similarly decided to pack up and move to the Lake District for a life in tune with the great outdoors. In homage to Millican Dalton, who was known to make his own rucksacks, they set up Millican on a farm in the Lake District. Dalton’s philosophy of simplicity continues to inspire the company’s designs and business decisions today.
Millican bags are made to last, pairing innovative, sustainable materials with functional, creative designs, while limiting the impact on the environment. The Originals Collection from Millican is made from 100% organic cotton canvas, while The Maverick Collection utilises bionic waterproof canvas created from 57% recycled materials. A sustainable stance is central to Millican. The company sources locally where possible; using wool from Herdwick sheep that live on the Lake District fells, and vegetable-tanned leather from the only remaining traditional oak bark tannery in Britain.
Crafted with durability and utility in mind, Millican’s bags use premium materials, but are free from unnecessary design thrills to give a streamlined style. Lightweight and practical, the bags give you ample safe storage and are extremely strong. They are designed to encourage you to travel light with everything you need.
Collaborating with a select number of like-minded partners, Millican’s product range combines quality, functionality and sustainability. Discover their rucksacks, travel bags, cool bags and overnight bags at A Hume. We are proud to stock this eco-conscious brand.
