Millican Bags


Based on a farm in the English Lake District, Millican celebrates the meaning in every journey. Inspired by the restless spirit of the open road, we create lifelong companions for the conscious traveller and deep thinker.

 Jorrit Jorritsma + Nicky Forbes founded Millican in 2008 after moving to the Lake District in search of fresh air and freedom. A slower pace of life gave them space to rediscover their passions – global travel, the outdoors and understanding the environment, inspiring them to run a business in tune with its natural surroundings as well as its local and global creative community.

 This is reflected in the brand’s conscious selection of innovative sustainable materials and its functional, creative designs that allow for minimal impact on the world around you.

 Millican is named after Millican Dalton, a Lake District legend who in the early 1900s left his conventional city life behind to pioneer a sustainable outdoor lifestyle, spending most of his time living in a cave in Borrowdale Valley.

 Millican was a maverick of his time, who chose to follow his own path in life and has inspired many others, including the team at Millican, to do the same. 

I found the simplest life is the happiest.
