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.

    Frank Clegg imitator? Or are they supplied by Frank Clegg too?

    • JJp

      Frank Clegg & Lotuff were one company and in 2012 they mutually decided to separate.

      • Dee

        Frank Clegg has been around since the 70s or 80s before joining with Lotuff.

      • Annabelle

        I work with Frank and know they didn’t Mutually decide to separate. Lotuff was able to work with Frank Clegg, but they used him for all his expertise and designs and went to another factory to steal all designs. You should have done a post on Frank not the bad guys! Never coming on this website again.

        That’s an interesting scoop! I prefer Frank Clegg, they look nicer. I heard of lotuff only later when i saw my FAVORITE FRANK CLEGG BRIEFCASE is also being sold by Lotuff. No mention of Frank on their ABOUT US Section in Lotuff’s site.
