Get Away From it All With Antler Suitcases
It all began in 1914 when John Boultbee Brooks, the son of a famous bicycle seat manufacturer, decided to enter the passenger luggage market. He started by producing leather wardrobe trunks for ocean voyages and unique trunks which were attached to cars. Brooks’ keen interest in wildlife led to the adoption of the stag’s head as the brand logo, which remains to this day, and the Antler brand was born. Based in the Midlands, the business began to thrive throughout the 1920’s and 1930’s.
During the Second World War, they started producing haversacks, webbing belts and military equipment to support the War Effort. After 1945, they returned to the luggage business, introducing innovative styles into the collection, such as the development of soft-sided luggage with rich quality linings. Tourism boomed in the 1960’s and 1970’s as air travel became more accessible and affordable, and people changed the way they spent their holidays. They endeavoured to keep one step ahead of the new travel lifestyle by introducing innovative and lightweight products like Airstream, which combined soft and hard materials in one case.
By the end of the Century, Antler had moved into the hardside luggage sector as well, and continued to play a key part in the rollercase revolution. At the end of the 20th century they continued to forge ahead with new products, entering the hard luggage market and also playing a key part in the roller case revolution. They celebrated their centenary and one hundred years of Great British Design. So the Antler brand you see today is a fresh, contemporary expression of what they stand for and believe in. Everything they do is based on the flair and culture of British design and underpinned by their own rich heritage of craftsmanship.
They’re clearly proud of their history and heritage and they’ve drawn on this wealth of experience to develop a wide range of suitcases, casual bags, travel accessories and leather goods.
