Leather Quality: Full Grain
This is the duffle bag you want to take on a road trip cruising up the Pacific Coast. Blending style cues from vintage leather travel bags with our rich full grain leather, it's a gorgeous travel companion. A water repellent army canvas lining and solid brass hardware make this bag truly unique. Use it as a duffle bag, weekender, carryall or whatever suits your needs.
Our full grain leather is rich in character and the surface is natural, not sanded or altered. This means you may see naturally occurring small scars, creases, and striations. These minor markings are not flaws - they are features and a hallmark of quality leather.
The leather also has natural color variation. No two hides are identical. So you may notice some color variation even among products that are the same color.
Like a fine wine, our leather gets even better as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable but proper care and maintenance is recommended. We offer a specially formulated all-natural leather cream that works wonderfully with our leather.
We use full grain leather made from strong North American steer hides - the best you can get. Learn how our products are made.
We use solid brass hardware with antique finish. A premium old-school rarity not used by most bag makers.
We use heavy gauge bonded thread to make our leather goods. It may be overkill, but that's what we do.
We lived in California for a couple years and had a chance to drive up the Pacific Coast Highway to Big Sur, between LA and San Francisco. It is one of the most beautiful drives in the country. Absolutely stunning scenery with rocky cliffs towering over the Pacific at every turn and a series of bridges that make you appreciate the simple pleasure of driving. It’s the kind of trip that begs for a convertible.
When I designed the Duffle, I wanted to make the perfect bag to throw in the back seat of that convertible on the way to Big Sur for the weekend.
