Risks and challenges

Our team is led by two experienced entrepreneurs that are dedicated to making The World’s First Duffle Suitcase a reality for our backers!

Johnathan, The Duffle Suitcase’s designer/founder, is a fashion industry insider with deep connections to a network of global manufacturers and significant experience with industry supply chain and logistics management. Johnathan’s fashion industry expertise covers design, technical design, and production development (to name but a few of his talents) and he’s worked for some of the world’s foremost fashion houses such as Helmut Lang and Theory. The World’s First Duffle Suitcase is–literally–a designer bag.

Ryan is a seasoned entrepreneur with business management expertise across a diverse cross section of industries. He is responsible for ensuring our campaign’s operations run as efficiently as possible. Ryan is passionate about high quality, functional product design, and he currently has two patents pending from his own technical side projects.

***

We have secured our manufacturers, shippers and fulfillment centers, all of whom are waiting for us to give them the green light! All of our partners have over 5 decades of experience. Our manufacturers are professional, precise and ethical.

***

Our freight forwarders move tons of product daily and are ready for our business. We have partnered up with one of the industry's leading fulfillment center so our backers will get their Duffle Suitcases in pristine condition and on time.

***

With all of that being said, we must note that unforeseen complications do occasionally arise. Natural disasters or accidents are unavoidable. We’ve constructed our timelines with reasonable accommodations for unforeseen events, and The Duffle Suitcases will be insured throughout every step of their arrival to your doorstep.

Johnathan has a keen understanding of the fact that delays in the fashion industry are sometimes inevitable, so our anticipated June delivery is a conservative estimate. If all runs smoothly there is a chance you will receive your bag earlier than expected!

Some international backers will be subject to import duty and taxes; these backers will be responsible for for covering all of their local duties and taxes. Import duties and taxes are not covered by this Kickstarter campaign.

The Duffle Suitcase you are seeing on this Kickstarter is a final prototype–it is very close to the finished product! The finished product will be of even higher quality materials, so if you like what you see here then you will love what you’ll receive in person!

FAQ

  • Both leather and canvas weigh 5 pounds (2268g) without the kit.

    Last updated:
  • We use full grain cow hide leather- Imported from Italy. It has a 1.4-1.6 mm thickness. Depending on the bag you choose it is finished with an oil pull character or in a pebble grain. Oil pull adds a unique characteristic that makes each bag slightly different. All leather is ethical - meaning none of the cows were killed for their skin.
    Oak = Oil pull finish
    Navy = Oil pull finish
    Jet Black = Pebble grain

    Bag lining- 100% Cotton Canvas (300g)
    Toiletry Kit lining - 100% Nylon
    All Zippers- YKK zippers

    Hardware:
    Buckles & Clasp - Zinc with color plating (nickel free)- Corrosion free lacquer
    D-rings, Snaps, Feet, Rivets- Iron (nickel free)- Corrosion free lacquer
    Base & Handle Reinforcement- leather board

    Canvas used for canvas bags- 100% cotton canvas 17 oz weight.
    All details are the same as the leather bags.
