PRODUCTION & DESIGN
This leather all purpose kit with rustic accents is meant to be passed on to future generations.
The flesh side of the soft leather is first stained with natural drab tone and finished with our proprietary beeswax conditioner. Our unique treatment not only helps the bag to retain its shape without the aid synthetic stabilizers, it also eliminates the need for a lining (often the first to tear) offering a natural and durable look.
The heavy-duty zipper is made by Japanese-founded and Brooklyn-based YKK, a zipper and hardware manufacturer widely respected in the worlds of fashion and accessories. The bottom features a heavier, double-leather overlay with double-stitched seams offering long lasting support. Seams are sewn using bonded nylon thread with a burned and melted finish offering no loose ends during your travel.
The term 'Dopp Kit' is derived from its inventor, Charles Doppelt, a leather artisan who immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century. The toiletry bag became relevant after Doppelt's kits were issued to millions of American military recruits during the Second World War. After the war, these roomy grooming cases continued to find favor among soldiers and civilian men and women alike.
