About

FOLKLAND is an up and coming American heritage brand crafting quality made goods with the best in durable materials and a heart for new adventures.  

INTRODUCING THE WEEKENDER DUFFEL

The Folkland Weekender is the perfect carry-on travel bag, or sport and utility duffel bag. We wanted a decent sized travel bag that would fit the maximum airline carry on dimensions and be built from the timeless heavy duty materials that we love. Simple and long lasting has been the foundation for all of our products. The Weekender is built with one main large compartment and a full sized side pocket with optional shoulder strap.

Since our previous campaign for our Rolltop Pack, we've been busy perfecting the design of our new duffel bag. With the WEEKENDER we've continued our characteristic design and styling, and the same materials that you know we love to use. But we've added a new leather to the line up for our all leather option. This firm waxy pullup leather is tanned in the state of Maine, and carries it's structure well all the while giving that rugged vintage aesthetic we love so much. 

Now we're ready to make the Folkland Weekender available to you all, and we need your help getting it into production and out with you on your next adventure.

HOW KICKSTARTER WORKS

For all of our friends that are new to Kickstarter, the process of getting a Folkland Weekender is fairly simple. Choose a "reward tier", which is just the Weekender option you want, in the right column and begin to checkout. Your "backing" (making a purchase) during this funding period will help us to begin the manufacturing process when the funding period is completed. As the funding period closes, you will be given a "survey" email where we will collect your shipping details confirm your reward option, and allow you to purchase add-ons such as the Shoulder Strap or Dopp Kit. We'll receive the funds 2 weeks after the campaign closes and then we'll begin the production phase in June. Our goal is to have all bags built and shipped by July and August.

WHO IS THIS FOR?

The Folkland Weekender is the perfect sized carry-on duffel bag to bring along only what you need for an excellent weekend getaway. And we built it like a tank to assure years of solid service and shared adventure. Whether you're conducting business, sports, or short travel trips and you're after an American made duffel bag that exudes durability alongside a time-honored look, the Weekender is for you.

Risks and challenges

There's always risk involved in backing a Kickstarter project. While the Folkland brand is new, the creators behind the brand have their hand in multiple successful Kickstarter campaigns with proven on-time delivery results.

Our only risk will fall on our suppliers being able to supply materials we need to craft the product. With a solid relationship history with our suppliers, we're confident that the risk of delay is very minimal, and our loyalty to customers is very high. We will see the campaign through, no matter how many setbacks could potentially occur. We just ask that you be willing to patiently wait beyond our promised delivery dates if a supplier should fall behind their delivery schedule. And we'd thank you for your understanding and support.
