Denim maker Earnest Sewn has teamed up with T-Tech by Tumi to create both a sleek and functional travel bag. The bag, which launches in April 2012, is made from selvedge denim and waxed cotton, it has organized interior pockets and Tumi’s Tracer, which allows it to be tracked if lost. With everyday wear, the waxed cotton will yield unique markings, allowing the customer to customize their bag.
“By using waxed cotton, the launch of the new T-Tech by Tumi line shows a similar aesthetic to Earnest Sewn. We worked with them to draw in some Earnest detailing by using our unique Japanese selvage and signature thread detailing. The company has always been about beauty in the details and this collaboration bag embodies what Earnest Sewn is all about.” explained Benjamin Talley Smith, creative director of Earnest Sewn.
The bags will be available for purchase at select Earnest Sewn stores, this spring, for $125. Starting February 7th, T-Tech by Tumi will launch a 6 month pop up shop inside Earnest Sewn’s Meatpacking store, where the bag and other T-Tech by Tumi products will be sold.
