In designing this leather duffel bag, I was inspired by another bag I bought this summer at a flea-market in Berlin. It was the simplicity and straightforwardness of the piece that caught my eye, but also the long life this bag seemed to have. The seller told me he bought it in the 70's in West Berlin and was selling it because he was not much of a traveller anymore.
I redesigned it, changing the parts that got worn out the most. And here it is: A German leather bag with a 70s style design, brought back to life 40 years later.
It is exactly as you see it in the pictures. A full leather duffel bag, with a wide opening, an inside pocket and a long strap, to carry it both as a cross-body bag or as a shoulder bag.
I guarantee you will love it. - Bogdan, Tram 21

Tram 21 makes sure that each bag is fairly made and of the highest quality. The tannery is set in Alcanena, Portugal - an area with a rich tannery tradition. Tram 21 works with a family that has been perfecting the art of tanning for five generations. They analyze each piece of leather, striving to achieve the highest quality to ensure that the leather they produce for your bags is outstanding.
The waxed cotton used comes from the UK and has a long history, starting in the mid-19th century, when it was first introduced to the sailing industry due to its waterproofing quality. We love the scratches and shades it gains over time. The UK factory is more than 100 years old and its history overlaps with the tale of the waxed canvas.

Based in Brussels, Tram 21 is an enthusiastic team of three, creating bags that will travel with you for many years, silently witnessing your journeys. The team is fascinated by objects that travel through time, things that somebody will find after many years at the back of a closet and wonder: How old is this bag? How many travels did it go on? How many more can it take with me?
