Where it all began
Established in Lancashire by John Boultbee Brooks in 1914, we’re proud to be a Great British brand.
Ask for Antler
Starting out, we produce leather trunks for ocean voyages and to attach to cars for the new era of car travel. We know that smartness doesn’t end with clothes, so we urge customers to ‘ask for Antler’ in some of our earliest advertising campaigns.
The war effort
We produce haversacks and military equipment during World War II, returning to luggage in 1945.
Luggage that lasts
Moving with the times, we make our mark on the hard-sided luggage market and play a key part in the wheeled suitcase revolution, as luggage become much easier to manoeuvre.
We continue to expand our range of ergonomic, casual travel and lifestyle bags for every type of traveller.
Relocating to London, we expand our premium product collection.
