Madlug was founded in 2015 by Dave Linton. A man whose only experience in the luggage industry was bags of enthusiasm. Dave, a Youth Worker was heartbroken to learn that most children in care transport their worldly belongings in a bin bag. In that moment, he set out to do something about it. With just £480, Dave started Madlug and came up with our 'Buy one Give one' approach: with every bag you purchase, one will be given to a child in care.
The Classic Backpack (featured) is the bag that started the movement. It is designed in Belfast and styled to meet your travel needs along with really helping you stand out as someone who cares. It's your perfect everyday backpack for shopping, travel, school, college, university, hiking and commuting every day to the office.

The Isle of Harris Distillery's story is one of love for the Isle of Harris, its land and its people, aiming to give back much more than it takes. The distillery was the brainchild of the now chairman, Anderson Bakewell, connected to the island for more than 50 years and anxious to address issues surrounding the fragile local economy and a declining population. What better way to share the magic of this place, he thought, than by capturing its essence in a bottle and sending it out into the world.
The Isle of Harris Distillery shop create carefully crafted lowball tumbler Gin and Martini glasses, the perfect way to ensure a sophisticated serve. Made in collaboration with Wrzesniak Glassworks, each handmade piece is one of a kind, having been blown, shaped and polished in traditional fashion at this exceptional workshop brought to our attention by Peter Kwasniewski, one of our staff in Tarbert. After working closely with their glassmiths, the resulting gently rippled contours provide a beautiful and tactile way to complement your Isle of Harris Gin bottle.
Isle of Harris Gin glass has an RRP of £10; and gift sets are available with two glasses and a bottle of Harris Gin at RRP £62.
