For quite some time we’ve been on the lookout for a vintage leather duffel.  One that we can use for weekend trips, or something a bit longer, and looks like it has been around the world once or twice.  After searching high and low, and coming up empty, we’re starting to think a better plan might just be to break in a bag of our own so we can tell the story of each and every battle scar.  If that’s the route we end up taking, the Twain Duffel by Korchmar is the perfect starting point.

Korchmar is a family owned company that’s been making high quality leather bags for four generations and more than 90 years.  They make all of their bags from fine American leather in family owned factories based in the Dominican Republic and also the US.  Slated for US production in 2013, the Twain Duffel is made from oil tanned antique leather, and features antique brass hardware for a classic look that will develop a wonderful patina as your travels take you near and far.  At 22″ x 9″ x 10″, the bag is compact enough for a weekend getaway, but roomy enough for a much longer trip depending on your packing skills.  Fully lined, and featuring a few interior pockets to stash your smaller items, the Twain is everything we can ask for in a classic leather duffel.  Now it’s time for a decision, should we keep searching for something vintage, or do we go ahead and start making some memories with a Twain Duffel from Korchmar?
