Introducing the ultimate weekender bag inspired by the heritage and aesthetic of classic sports cars. Designed in Canada and handmade in a small, highly specialized factory in Northern Italy, our initial run of 100 bags has some very special characteristics. Military grade RFID blocking fabric lines the outside pocket for an added level of security and the two-tone deviated stitching inspired by sports car steering wheels adorns the leather handles. With this edition, the custom tartan exterior fabric is our nod to the classic interiors from the ‘80’s from a special car maker.
