Based on a World War Two allied forces parachute bag found by one of our owners in a flea market stall outside of Paris, this bag is as functional as it gets, and then we added internal pockets to keep frequently accessed items close to hand. We feel the bag is the ideal size for a weekend away or as gym bag, and with the strong, durable Italian made zip, and full top opening, one will be surprised what one can carry, such as a whole case of wine. It confirms to the IATA "OK" standard and is acceptable to discount airlines.
The fabric has been pre washed in an industrial washing machine, to get rid of all of the shrinkage, so that when this bag is washed when it is soiled, it won't shrink or change shape. All the internal seams have been taped so there will be no fraying of cloth that could ultimately lead to a seam failing. This is probably one of the lightest holdalls in the market and also makes a great additional bag for souvenirs and other unexpected purchases when travelling. Great for the beach too!
Made of washed pure cotton, outside of Porto, Portugal
