Project Description

Santoro Design Travel Bags and Accessories

The goal for the design of these travel bags was simple: Create a set of bags that allowed for a weekend gateway that were executed in high style using materials of exceptional quality. The more highly styled of the two is the leather Overnight Bag. Inspired by origami, the bag can sometimes take on the appearance of being folded on adjustment.

For the black model the art comes from the juxtaposition of the textured hide upper against the smooth, almost polished lower section. For the vintage, it’s the way the bag will patina in over time endearing itself to it’s owner. Accented by polished chrome hardware, it’s a bag that travels just as well to your secluded retreat as a 5 start resort.

Leather Duffel Bag – Visually, the Duffel Bag is the more utilitarian of the two. Even within this more “form following function” aesthetic, a certain elegance was sought to separate this design from the hordes of available options. Like the Overnight bag, the Duffie achieves this elegance by juxtaposing the heavily textured leather against the smooth, almost polished finish of the vertical straps and handles.

This combined with the polished chrome hardware exudes an air of exclusivity, craftsmanship and sophistication. Additional features that speak to the quality of both bags is the 5mm of foam rubber layered between the liner and leather exterior helping to long term shape. Five bottom feat prevent premature wear. Both bags are available for purchase here Overnight Bag and here Duffel Bag
