In designing this leather duffel bag I was inspired by a bag I bought this summer at a flee-market in Berlin. It was the simple and straight-forward structure that caught my eyes, but also the long life this bag seemed to had. The seller told me he bought it in the 70's from West Berlin and he 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 design from the 70's, brought back to life 40 years later.
There's not much I can say about this bag. It is exactly as you see it in the pictures. A full leather duffel bag, with an 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 had been perfecting the art of tanning for five generations. They analyze each piece of leather, striving to achieve the highest quality to ensure the quality of the leather they produce for your bags is outstanding.
The waxed cotton used comes from the UK and it has a long history, starting from the mid-19th century, when it was first introduced in the sailing industry, due to its waterproofing quality. Even if it was eventually replaced by synthetic materials, waxed canvas is still used not least due to its characteristic appearance. We love the scratches and shades it gains over time. The UK factory is more than 100 years old and their history overlaps with the waxed canvas history itself.
