Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. I can write a book about the duffel bag. Its history starts a long time ago and it has always been used by brave men, who were ready to travel
It is a large bag and you can put many things inside it. My source of inspiration was the original US Military Duffel bag, from which I kept the structure and I reinforced the bottom, the handler and the strap with the saddle leather. The result is outstanding!
The shades it gets over time make the waxed canvas a special fabric. And because of that, the saddle leather is the high class partner it deserves to have.
Both the waxed canvas and the saddle leather evolve and get better over time. Every scratch is recorded and the marks and the shades will remind you of all the journeys you took, to discover the world and to discover yourself. I see these two materials like a photographic film that captures the present for the future.
To preserve the character of the fabrics and to make them last longer, I waterproofed the leather and the lining. Together with the waxed canvas, they make an amazing tote bag, ready for a long walk on a rainy day.
The diameter is aprox. 30 cm/ 12'' and the length is aprox. 55 cm/ 21" (closed). Perfect as a cabin bag.
