Some things just don’t fit in an everyday backpack: squash rackets, yoga mats, maps, long-stemmed flowers. As an answer to that dilemma and in an effort to update the traditional sailor’s ditty bag, we’ve created the Leather Duffle Backpack here in our Providence studio. It has a drawstring closure and interior zipper pocket for easy access to items, but there’s also an exterior pocket that sits against the back to protect anything particularly valuable.
This backpack first launched a few months ago, but it’s getting a second debut later on this month thanks to Todd Snyder. He’s one of our existing retailers, and we’ve collaborated with him twice for New York Fashion Week: Men’s, but we’re especially looking forward to the opening of his first boutique in New York’s Flatiron District. Our Duffle Backpack will be featured at this flagship store, and we’re proud to be working once again with Todd Snyder to bring great bags like this one to a new market.
