Their high quality luggage is created to be authentic and durable. The materials they use for their products include, Canadian wood that comes from old timber logs. By using this material it ensures that no two pieces are identical. The young bull leather is sourced from a family in France and is used on the exterior. This specific leather is known to be tougher, less flexible and retains its shape for a more permanent effect. For the interior they use Alcantara®, an eco-friendly and water repellent material manufactured in Italy. This patented interior is very soft to the touch. The hardware of the luggage is created from anodized aluminum, ensuring the luggage will be long-lasting and have a light weight. Charles and Simon are extremely detail oriented and believe that luggage should be an eloquent, beautiful piece and unique to each person.
