Travelteq describes itself as "travelers for travelers," as in having products for those on-the-go made by those on-the-go. It would be far more accurate to amend that to "discerning travelers for connoisseurs of travel." Earlier this year the company launched a line of totes called "Trash" consisting of Florentine Vachetta leather outers in black (Panther) or brown (Fox) that envelop a water-resistant nylon compartment section available in three hues. The line has now been added to with the Trash Messenger, Trash 17-inch, and Trash Cougar bags.
The series was already brimming with conveniences for movers and flyers: exterior business card and newspaper pockets, a loop for sliding the bag over your roller suitcase, sunglass, cellphone and pen pockets that you could access without unzipping the bag, and four interior compartments – two large and two small. That makes nine, count them, nine in total. With the pocket thing handled, a clamor arose for a larger bag and one that could be slung over the shoulder, needs that the Messenger and 17-inch totes now fill.
As for the slightly smaller Trash Cougar, we're not sure what kind of traveler that bag caters to but we suppose you'll know if it's you. Every Travelteq bag is made by hand, in Italy, and they start at €395 ($495 U.S.) for the Trash original.
