Last week marked the moment of the release of another exciting project, which we now can finally share: the second collaboration between Tenue de Nîmes and Travelteq, after the first one dating back to 2011, with the new joint effort 3 years later resulting in the co-creation of two all-new designs of Travelteq’s modern classic; the ‘Trash’ Laptop bag. The collaboration is highly limited to only 30 hand made pieces, which are produced at the Travelteq factory in Tuscany, Italy, which we visited when the last collaboration came about. The handmade accessories represent the best of two worlds as they are made from Travelteq’s signature Florentine Vacchetta leather combined with what forms the blood in the veins of the Tenue de Nîmes universe: characteristic Japanese selvage denim. With one version predominantly made from denim, with leather details, and the other boasting only denim details and a leather body. As with all premium products by Travelteq, the leather of the bags gets its beautiful deep cognac color thanks to the vegetable tanning process, with the design of the bag forming eight compartments, of which three are zipped, plus one for anything the size of a cigar and the main compartment for your laptop of maximally 15 inches.
For quite some years now Travelteq’s mission is and has been to create travel accessories that benefit the 21st century traveller and at Tenue de Nîmes we were fortunate to be asked to add a denim spirit to their latest accessory. The Tenue de Nîmes x Travelteq ‘Trash’ laptop bag measures 40 x 30 x 8 cm, being available in the mentioned cognac leather with denim details or as mentioned the complete other way around: a denim bag with only elegant cognac leather details. Basically one choses to go all out in denim, or just a touch of denim within the leather; the one thing that’s secure to say, the bag will show some exquisite fading after intense use either way.
The predominantly leather Tenue de Nîmes x Travelteq laptop bag retails for €545 and the denim ‘inside out’ version is available at €450.
Both versions of the Trash bags are exclusively available at the Tenue de Nîmes stores on the Elandsgracht 60 or Haarlemmerstraat 92-94 in Amserdam or ready for purchase online.
