About the product

Consistent is sometimes not consistent enough. With travel bag »Ray«, we wanted to take the adventure look to the extreme and create a homage to classic expedition luggage. David Livingstone's luggage might have looked something like this on one of his numerous expeditions across South Africa in the 19th century. He discovered the famous Victoria Falls, was the first European to cross the Kalahari Desert and found the origin of the Congo.

Travel bag »Ray« is a weekender-style bag for longer weekend trips of up to 7 days. The holdall can be slung casually over the shoulder or carried elegantly by hand on the leather straps. On the outside, there are two useful storage compartments in cargo design that can be opened quickly when needed. There is also a large zipped compartment on the back.

The bag has a high quality finish. All wear points are lined with leather on the outside. All stress points are additionally reinforced.

Our story

We are Daniel and Christoph and live our dream. We founded DRAKENSBERG because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it.

To understand the path as the true goal and to grow on it. A good journey means learning. About life and about yourself. We know that a good journey can change a whole life. Our travel bags are silent reminders of the travel spirit of the 19th and 20th century, when traveling was still an adventure and travelers were adventurers.


Maybe you have already noticed, our bags are different. Each product is an elaborately manufactured unique piece with its own little story. The bags are almost completely handmade. We only use high quality leather and natural materials. Paying attention to sustainability and environment.

Leather is a natural material and can have small irregularities. Each leather product is also patinated by hand. This elaborate process makes our products trademarked. No bag can be exactly same as another. Thus, small colour deviations are unfortunately unavoidable and are not a sign of poor quality, but uniqueness.

FAQs: Frequently asked questions about our Duffle Bag »Ray«

<h3><b>Can the leather travel bag "Ray," in Havana-brown, be checked in as luggage on flights?</b></h3> <p>Unfortunately, this question can only be answered with a "depends." Theoretically, you can check in the bag as luggage. However, due to the conveyor belts used in transportation, the leather may show signs of scratches or scuffs. Therefore, it's better not to check it in.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Is the leather travel bag "Ray," Havana-brown, waterproof or water-resistant?</b></h3> <p>The bag is designed after the classic travel bags of the 19th century. To be as authentic as possible, we exclusively use materials that were in use 100 years ago and avoid plastics and chemicals. Thus, our travel bag is neither waterproof nor water-resistant in its standard form. However, a short rain shower won't harm our bags.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Can the leather travel bag "Ray," Havana-brown, be made water-resistant afterward?</b></h3> <p>The travel bag "Ray" can be easily waterproofed with a standard, colorless waterproofing spray (e.g., Impru00e4gnol). It's best to test the spray on the underside of the bag first.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>How can I clean and maintain my leather travel bag "Ray," Havana-brown?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a vintage travel bag should show signs of intensive use. That's how it should be. If you still wish to clean your bag, we recommend the following three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Clean the bag of dust and dirt particles, e.g., with a leather brush or handheld vacuum cleaner.</li> <li>Gently dab and rub out stains with a clean, damp cloth. Optionally, try a mild soapy solution if stains are stubborn.</li> <li>Occasionally lightly grease the leather (e.g., leather care with beeswax or carnauba wax). Always test on an inconspicuous area first.</li> </ul> <p></p> <h3><b>What type of leather is used for the travel bag "Ray"?</b></h3> <p>We exclusively use vegetable-tanned, full-grain buffalo leather for our bags. This particularly robust leather comes from India. During production, our leather is additionally hand-finished with a colored carnauba-based wax, thereby acquiring its unique vintage patina.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Where and how is the canvas travel bag "Ray," Havana-brown, produced?</b></h3> <p>Our goods are produced in India. Our manufacturer is a small family business whose long-term employees make our bags with great passion and care. A true friendship has grown from our long collaboration. The production conditions are socially acceptable and meet BSCI standards. We regularly verify these conditions personally. Our leather and cotton fabrics are sourced locally from India. For dyeing our cotton fabrics, only dyes free from AZO dyes are used. Our leathers are primarily vegetable-tanned, meaning plant-based and without the use of aggressive tanning agents. Our standards are socially and ecologically sustainable and above average. However, it is our claim to continue improving our ecological and social "footprint."</p>

Our leather production is LWG certified

Our leather tannery is certified to the LWG standard and we use only vegetable tanning agents for tanning. The Leather Working Group (LWG) is an initiative to make conditions in tanneries and intermediaries more transparent and to bring about sustainable change. To implement its goals, the Leather Working Group has developed an audit protocol for sustainable and responsible leather production.
