Starting next week it is the holiday travel season. With this in mind US-based design house Knoll has introduced a collection of totes and travel bags made from 100% merino wool. The five piece Knoll Tote and Travel Collection also feature aniline-dyed Spinneybeck leather accents. This being the holiday season the bag collection perfectly double up as gifts too.
These versatile bags are made from top quality materials from best manufacturers in the world. Felt for the bags come from FilzFelt, they import 100% wool designed felt from Germany. The entire process beginning from where sheep are raised to the felt mill to cut, stitched and assembled are done in Germany by using traditional methods.
Karen Stone, Knoll designer who conceived the collection, said: “Knoll has a tradition of experimenting with new materials and product categories, beginning with Florence Knoll’s unexpected use of simple menswear textiles in the 1940s. The new tote and travel bag designs are pared down in the modern tradition, yet extremely tactile and functional.”
Each and every bag in the collection is perfect for a day out in the city or the beach. Take it with you for a weekend trip on a private jet, grocery shopping or pack your yoga mat in it for the yoga class. Do all of this in style without breaking the bank. The Knoll Totes and Travel Collection retail for between $290 and $595.
