These days, most manufacturers chase exponential growth, churning out products and expanding their range, upgrading to more modern and automated machines. Whereas TEG London purposefully stays niche, working diligently to produce handcrafted, exquisitely made best oak and leather guncases and slips, as well as cartridge belts and boot bags. TEG London’s skilled craftsmen also offer various services to keep your items in pristine condition, as well as adding unique finishing touches.
As a family-owned and run business, TEG London was established in 1987 by Ian Tomlin and is now run by his son Joe. The Kent-based brand supplies Britain’s top London gunmakers such as John Rigby & Co., Holland & Holland, Purdey, Boss and McKay Brown.
A second generation casemaker, highly accomplished Ian originally learnt his trade from his late father Harry and went on to serve a two-year apprenticeship under Brian Laurence at Bryant Guncases in the ’70s. Just two years after forming TEG, the business became the go-to brand for leather goods for all the London gunmakers.
