Now I may not travel very far but when I do venture out I like to do it in style. I’ve recently discovered Scaramanga where you will find a gorgeous range of handmade leather bags, wallets and accessories, and vintage furniture too.
Inspired by iconic British vintage leather bags, their design team develops exclusive designs which are then lovingly handmade by skilled leather workers using traditional techniques and tools.
Their bags are affordable classics and you’ll find everything from traditional satchels and messenger bags to women’s handbags and travel accessories.
You’ll even find iPad and laptop sleeves, smartphone cases and glasses cases.
I was sent the travel wallet which has room for documents, schedules and passports.
This leather wallet is a slim classic design which will easily fit into your hand luggage.
Your documents will easily slide into one pocket, while coins, money and cards will remain safe in the zipper pocket. There is also a designated flap pocket for your passport.
The travel wallet functions as a folder but has a magnetic closure to keep your belongings secure, just a like a wallet.
I loved the vintage feel of the wallet and the authentic leather look. The leather hides Scaramanga use have all been processed and tanned to give a distressed leather finish and each hide may be slightly different from the next.
So, for example, the grain on the hide may be a little uneven or have natural marks on it and the colour may even vary. Because of this, every bag is unique and the leather will naturally soften as you use it.
To give you an idea of the size of the document pocket, it will easily take a Kindle Paperwhite with room to spare.
The zipper pocket is a nice touch to keep your currency on hand and separate from your sterling.
No more routing around your handbag at the check-in desk looking for your passport. I don’t know about you but I find myself checking for my passport constantly en route – and with this, I will know exactly where it is.
Even though check-in for flights and tickets can now be done online, there’s nothing like the romance of stylish luggage and accessories, is there?
Your leather accessories will need proper care to keep them at their best and you can find all the advice you need on the website.
