Brompton 2021 Liberty Print Metropolis Bags

In 2020 Brompton teamed up with Liberty Print to release a limited number of bags made using special Liberty Print fabric / design.

The bags included in the range were the Metro Pouch, Basket bag and Tote Bag.

For 2021 there are new Brompton Liberty Print bags out. The print design is named “Metropolis” and inspired by the skyscrapers of London.

This time in addition to the Metro Pouch, Basket and Tote bag. There is also the increasingly popular Metro Backpack available in this print.

Bag numbers are (we think) very limited this time around. So we thought we would show off the design.

We also run through the basic features of the tote bag. As we haven’t covered that before.

Who is Liberty Print?

In 1875, Liberty Fabric’s adventurous founder, Arthur Lasenby, took a building on Regent Street, London, with just three dedicated staff and plenty of ambition.

Then came Brompton folding bikes

Just 100 years later, Brompton inventor Andrew Ritchie made his first-ever folding bike in the spare bedroom of his West London apartment in 1975. A design classic in its own right, the Brompton bicycle continues to be hand-built in London today with innovation and care.

The Liberty Metropolis meets Brompton

Like the bike, Brompton luggage is crafted to meet the demands of day-to-day use in the city. The new Brompton bag collection sees the archive Metropolis pattern applied to a custom-made Polyester fabric with a highly water-resistant coating, which is printed in Italy to the Liberty Design studio’s highest quality standards.

The four different types of bags

Four popular Brompton bags; the Tote, Basket, Backpack and Zip Pouch take on a new direction this summer with a Made with Liberty Fabric print specially selected from their 45,000-piece archive.

The Metropolis design, an ode to London, draws from the city’s towering skyscrapers with a bold geometric pattern and 3D shapes.

All four styles fit seamlessly onto the front carrier block of your Brompton, bringing style and function to every ride.

The Backpack


The backpack that fits on your Brompton bike, an incredibly useful accessory for commuting, travelling and the daily ride around. This durable workhorse is loaded with comfort features and functional details, including a padded air mesh rear panel, expandable side pockets to fit your water bottle, and a smart magnetic snap system to keep straps safely in place whilst riding.


The Tote


The much-loved Borough Tote S is reworked this summer with the Metropolis pattern and features a zipper-secured main compartment and two external pockets to keep your essentials safe while you ride. Finished with soft webbing for the shoulder straps (which tuck neatly in the front pocket whilst riding), this classic style is perfect for everyday trips into town or a day trip adventure.


The Liberty Print Basket

The expanding folding basket works seamlessly on and off your bike. A true all-rounder, the Basket bag is ideal for carrying your shopping or packing up for a weekend away. The Basket even features a folding brace system, making it exceptionally compact when not in use (perfect for storing in small spaces!), a padded carry handle and a zipped internal pocket to keep your valuables safe.


The Zip Pouch

The ‘forever useful’ Metro Zip Pouch, designed to sit on the handlebars or saddle of your Brompton, has just enough space for your phone, wallet and spare inner tube. A lovely riding companion on its own or paired alongside another piece of front luggage.

Brilliant Bikes
We are creating a better place ... where we help you get to work or to the shops or just get out for a ride in a fun, healthy and environmentally responsible way - and with the right equipment so that you are pretty sure it's not going to be a one way trip. We started vittually in 2009, selling bicycle tools, spare parts and accessories using the Internet. In 2013 we opened our first shop in Chobham, Surrey, England so we now provide full mechanical service on all types of bikes (service, repair, upgrades and custom builds) as well as sales of new bikes from Brompton, Frog (children's bikes), Orbea (mountain, road and hybrid / comfort) and Pashley (British built classic bicycles). To us, cycling doesn't mean you have to race at elite level (though is there any reason not to?) - why not just take your bike next time you go to the Post Office or local shops? But maybe you need to do something, to make your bike better for that ride - repairing something or adding lights to keep you safer - for example? We hope you will find what you need here to help you keep cycling or re-kindle the love affair with your bike.
