“We aim to invent, improve and innovate –
not just reproduce what’s already available.”

Life began in a back bedroom in 2010. From a single sewing machine, founder Nathan made pedal straps, firstly for himself, then for his friends. Interest grew, so did Restrap, and Nathan branched out to develop the full range of bags, luggage and accessories available today.

The back bedroom quickly became too small. Today Restrap occupies a large workshop in Leeds, and has become a close-knit team of machinists, designers, family and friends.

Here at Restrap we’re proud of our Yorkshire roots and the landscape that inspires our  brand. We’ve invested in top-notch machinery to ensure our products continue to be made by hand, in the UK, using sustainable materials and local labour.

We’re a team of outdoor enthusiasts. When we’re not sewing, we’re out and about putting our products through rigorous testing, getting ourselves and our stuff as wet, muddy and well-used as possible.

You can be confident that everything we make is finished to the highest standard and adjusted for the best user experience.

We’ve one simple mantra: “design, build, ride”.

Every product starts as a simple idea. Is there a gap in the market? We’ll fill it. It’s sketched, prototyped, created, adjusted and tested until we have something the team is happy with.

We aim to invent, improve and innovate – not just reproduce what is already available.


Manufacturing everything in house means one thing – control. We have complete say over the materials we use, how our  products are made and are free to change and improve our designs whenever we like. 

We get the best products to you, without adding to the user cost and with a much lower carbon footprint.

Our suppliers are our friends. We work closely with our weavers and coaters to ensure the highest quality for our fabrics.


We work with some of the world’s greatest fitting manufacturers to create one-of-a- kind attachments for all conditions. From super hardwearing metal components to precision magnetic closures, we provide great usability in all our designs.


We are Restrap, a family-run business specialising in hand-made outdoor accessories.
