Launching this week in the Travel Goods Department at Harrods are three exclusive duffle bags, designed and hand-made by Italian leather company, LAPA. Limited to only two pieces per colour, the bags are available in orange & black, pink & black, and mock croc & python. The bags have been crafted from the finest leather and feature beautiful metallic finishes.
The attention to detail is evident in all three colour choices. The white croc piece is complemented with glossy finished, mock python and silver brass zippers and studs. The orange and pink duffles feature shiny black leather to complement the vivid colour at the base of the bag. Measuring 50 x 30 x 20cm the bags meet the carry-on size regulations for the majority of airlines.
In the 21st century we are surrounded by technology, machinery and even robots that are designed to make life quicker and easier for all of us. It is therefore a relief to see that the artisans at LAPA still hand-make all of their pieces using traditional methods which have been used for decades. LAPA products feature a rich Tuscan tradition of hand-made, high-quality leather goods.
LAPA was set up in the early 1990’s by Nicola Stanescu, a craftsman and passionate Italian who combined his love and knowledge of leather with handmade craftsmanship and a passion for creating perfect bags and accessories. LAPA was born on these principles and they have been passed down through the generations of the family and still exist to this day.
The bags will be available from the Travel Goods Department on the Second Floor of Harrods, Knightsbridge. Stephen Spitz, Case CEO, comments “We are proud of the fact that Case is the exclusive retailer of LAPA products in the UK and these duffles will feature perfectly in our department in Harrods. At first glance you can see the quality of the workmanship that has gone into these bags.”
