Based on a French atelier's first canvas bag design from almost a century ago, we resized it for modern travel requirements, but kept the church glass window side profile that never really made it to production. Subsequent iterations from the brand were squashed and relied on marketing and branding, but we felt what could have been an iconic shape, was lost forever. It took us quite a few attempts to perfect the shape, respecting the profile and maximising storage capacity.
It features two internal pockets and confirms to the IATA standard and is acceptable to what is left of quality full price airlines.
The fabric comes from Halley Stevensons, who have been weatherproofing fabrics for over 150 years. 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 a great week away bag, to visit a city like Marrakech or the South of France.
Made of waxed Scottish cotton, outside of Porto, Portugal.
