Start-up stories: Millican Bags

Jorrit Jorritsma uses broadband to connect with his customers around the world from his base in the Lake District. He founded the company in 2009, after spotting a gap in the market for highly functional bags that could be passed down through generations.

Millican sells rucksacks, shoulder bags, overnight bags, commuting products, and travel accessories. But for Jorrit, the business is more than just shifting product.

If you focus on selling, you become a sales organisation. We’re focused on being a lifestyle brand that’s meaningful to people around the world.

Jorrit Jorritsma, Millican

‘What we’re trying to do with Millican is talk about our dreams and how we achieved some of them – and hopefully inspire others to do the same thing’.

It takes courage to step off the beaten track. Watch the video to see how Jorrit took that step.
