Back in 2011, with a head start from my curtain-making mum, I started making bags and accessories - mostly for cyclists. In the following years I've had a dual focus on both backpacks and on-bike bags. For the backpacks, I take a great deal of inspiration from the tough, no nonense climbing pack designs of the 70s and 80s. With the bike kit, I'm looking to find a balance between utility and simplicity, marrying the old and the new.


Big Top has and likely always will be primarily a one man band, with a little help from some new gadgets and machinery.
I'm only ever an email away, if you've any thoughts or questions about the gear just chuck me an email or message via the site.
