Men travel bag
For this sleek travel bag, Harold’s uses exceptionally lightweight waxed cowhide. The vegetable-tanned leather is not further distressed, so its surface is velvety soft and rich to the touch and will develop a vibrant patina. Handles and shoulder straps are made of strong, open-edged saddle leather, which also contrasts nicely in color with the soft leather of the body. The handles are partially doubled and reinforced again at the gripping surface, so that they lie comfortably in the hand. Metal feet protect the reinforced bottom of the bag when put down. The two pockets on the outside close with magnets. Thanks to the zipper that extends far beyond the corners, the travel bag can be opened wide and then gives a generous view and access to its contents.
It is lined with a strong twill fabric made of cotton. At the bottom of the bag, the lining has a zipper: This opening only served to neatly stitch the seams. A small zippered compartment, on the other hand, holds small items.
German Constructual Inventiveness, Colombian All-Natural Materials. A Steady Cooperation for 30 years.
Harold’ has its leather goods designed in Germany and manufactured in a Colombian manufactory. The fruitful cooperation goes back to the mid-1980s. Eventually, it involves more than usual: Based on legal employment contracts, the collaboration provides the Columbian workers with reliable working conditions, ensures their coverage in health and accident insurances, and contributes to a pension scheme. Therefore, many of the employees have been working in the company for more than 20 years. Over the years, they have accumulated relevant expertise and experience in leather processing. That’s not a given in South America’s leather goods industry: Typical for the sector is a high proportion of migrant workers and fluctuations in the workforce. No less impressive is Harold’s conscientious handling of the extensive safety regulations: The working conditions meet European standards, for example, by putting forward muffled acoustics, adequate floor space and exemplary cleanliness. A large part of the machinery originates in Europe as well. The leather comes from nearby kept cattle grazing outdoors all year round, as is customary in South America. The tanned leather’s surface still shows the natural grain and traces of the animal’s life, such as mosquito bites or small cracks, and soon the patina typical of leather will form on it. Harold’s has the lining fabrics and metal parts produced by partner companies based close to the Colombian manufactory.
