I consulted with my luggage maker and told him I wanted to offer a line of exceptionally well made, luxurious, sophisticated, but rugged, travel bags.
You know, the kind that were impossible to find.
I didn't want much.
Funny, he said, Rolls Royce asked me the same thing. Wanted me to design bags for their customers that like to go places.
"Where do you see yourself going with them?" he asked.
"Well, I said, more places."
"I think I know what you're looking for."
Introducing our new line of canvas travel bags. Made from substantial 18 oz. canvas and hand-dipped in paraffin wax so that they don't have that oily feel or smell you get with lesser-quality canvas bags.
Handles are hand-rolled from the finest American cowhide.
All of the stitching is done with extra-heavy thread in a continuous stitch so that you never see any patchwork stitching.
All exposed edges are sanded and sealed.
It's the attention to detail that determines quality.

Single interior envelope-pouch pocket.
Exterior zippered pocket.

Aged brass hardware throughout, including the working lock.
The way they used to make travel bags.

Vintage Waxed Canvas Shave Kit (No. 2884). Who really wants to carry their toiletries in a zip-lock bag?
The interior compartment is lined with indestructible nylon and is wide open, without sewn-in dividers, to handle the odd-shaped items that invariably end up here.
One interior zippered envelope in the kit's top
Low-profile shape means it can be tucked anywhere.
