It’s officially spring, even if it doesn’t feel like it, and with the eventually warmer weather comes the promise of travel. A good weekender or duffel is a universal necessity for both men and women, and the Lotuff Leather Travel Duffel Bag is an attractive, somewhat reasonably priced, American-made option that we can picture accompanying us on many a summer trip.
Lotuff Leather isn’t a big brand, but sometimes going beyond the known names and exploring independent designers and manufacturers can pay dividends. This simple, traditional bag is made in entirely in New England by experienced artisans, which gives the piece a sense of place and history that a more mass-produced bag might not have.
While the price ($1,050) is still not tiny, it’s also not as expensive as similar pieces of the same size and fabrication often are. If you want a weekend bag that will result in envious inquiries from your friends (and that will let you brag about finding a well-made American manufacturer), this is the bag for you. Buy through East Dane for $1,050.
