Got a lot of money to drop on a leather travel bag? Perhaps this leather duffle bag from Lotuff is what you’re looking for. Located in Providence, Rhode Island, Lotuff is dedicated to crafting the finest leather goods from the finest materials. They use a traditional vegetable-tanning process with roots going back thousands of years, and then handcraft each and every bag to the highest standards of craftsmanship – right here in the USA.
The Leather Duffle Travel Bag is something between a briefcase, a weekender and a gym bag, made from their hand-picked, tumbled, vegetable-tanned leather. It features solid brass YKK Excella zippers, with brass hardware throughout. Inside is unlined suede.
The bottom of the bag is double-layered leather, and features no metal pieces so as to avoid damaging anything (the bag or countertop). The handles are double-stitched, and there is also a removable shoulder strap for slinging it over your shoulder.
All this comes together to create an excellent, gorgeous handcrafted bag – made entirely in their Rhode Island workshop. Each and every bag is embossed with its individual number, so you know exactly when your bag was made.
It costs a hefty $1200, but is easily one of the finest we’ve seen.
