So, here it is, that familiar scene, cramming as much clothing as you can into your old sports holdall. Not ideal preparation for an upcoming business trip. You’re not going to arrive in style, and your clothes are not going to smell great.
Fear not, we have the answer to your luggage dilemma.
Crafted from sturdy waxed leather, the Explorer range comprises two holdalls, sling bag, messenger bag and a useful travel pouch. Stunning as a collection, but each item holds its own important role for the seasoned traveller. Drawing on our own travel experience, we’ve created a range that will stand the test of time.
Starting with the leather, because that’s our indisputable area of expertise, and more importantly, that’s what everybody first looks at, we’ve opted for hard-wearing buffalo leather. Providing incredible strength, the leather is also soft and supple. Keeping things as natural as possible, the unique patina of the leather means each bag is truly different. With age and use it will take on an even more characterful appearance. We’ve gone one step further though, and added a waxy coating to the leather. The wax provides a water repellent layer, making the bags weatherproof.
We’ve also created our unique lining. Made from strong fabric and featuring famous landmarks from the Lake District, the map lining, along with the other quality finishes highlight the attention to detail that makes the Explorer range so special.
Measuring a substantial 55cm x 27cm x 20cm, the Explorer Large Holdall is built to hold all your short break needs. It should still fit within cabin luggage requirements, but check with your airline. It can be worn two ways, either with the grab handles, or using the detachable shoulder strap. Expandable sides and the edge-to-edge top zip opening mean the capacity of the bag can be pushed to the limits. The structured base and metal feet will ensure the holdall keeps its shape and avoids unnecessary damage.
Taking on a different style, the Explorer Barrel Bag is truly unique. The detachable side pouch makes this bag the ideal travel companion, as this will easily hold your travel documents. As you’d expect, we’ve opted for a wide opening. Of course, the leather and the fittings are all of the quality you’d expect from Lakeland Leather.
We didn’t stop there. Check out the rest of the range:
