Stylish men's toiletry bags made of durable canvas and leather

The timeless elegance of our wash bags perfectly complements any luggage. Each piece is lovingly handcrafted from premium buffalo leather and durable cotton fabrics. Equipped with numerous practical compartments and meticulous details, this classic accessory is the ideal choice for discerning men who like to travel in style.

What makes our men's toiletry bags so special

Our bags for men by DRAKENSBERG are anything but ordinary. For us, sustainability is not just a buzzword, but an integral part of our product design philosophy. We focus on authentic wash bags for men, made as they were 100 years ago. Natural materials are at the forefront for us.

We are not fooled by supposedly "vegan" leather that often turns out to be plastic composite. Genuine leather imitations from plant sources are rare and often end up being plastic composites. The term "natural leather" is also overused, but for us, it still means genuine leather of the highest quality. For our men's toiletry bags, we use exclusively top-quality, full-grain buffalo leather.

We place particular emphasis on outstanding craftsmanship. Each piece is hand-processed and thoroughly checked. The zippers of our products come from YKK, a guarantee of longevity. Our production is fair and SEDEX certified.

A high-quality toiletry bag for the modern man of the 21st century should not only be functional but also convey a genuine and authentic feeling. At DRAKENSBERG, every toiletry bag tells its own story, embodying style and personality. For men with style and environmental responsibility.

The function of a toiletry bag

A wash bag or a necessaire is a small bag for men that serves to store hygiene items such as toothbrush, toothpaste, or body care products while traveling or in everyday life. The term "toiletry bag" only became established in the mid-20th century and is derived from "body culture". Other common names are cosmetic bag, swimming bag, wash bag, and toiletry bag. In parts of Germany and Switzerland, the terms "necessaire" or "nessessär" are also used, originating from French.


What types of men's toiletry bag models are there?

In our range, we offer four categories of toiletry bags made of canvas and leather: foldable toiletry bags for hanging, like the Sid model; rigid toiletry bags, like the Glen model; compact cosmetic bags, like the leather case Tim; as well as expandable wash bags, like the Ruby model. The choice of the appropriate wash bag depends on the use and personal preferences. All our wash bags impress with their durability, craftsmanship, and robustness.


Optimal size for men's toiletry bags

All toiletry bag models for men by DRAKENSBERG have a capacity of about 5 liters. This size has proven to be ideal for daily needs on trips of up to three weeks.


What's the difference between a men's toiletry bag and a wash bag?

The terms are often used synonymously as they all refer to small bags or pouches for storing personal care items, utensils, or cosmetic products. However, there are subtle differences in the use and meaning of these terms, which can vary depending on the region and context.

Toiletry Bag:

The term "toiletry bag" is comprehensive and generally refers to a bag or case in which various hygiene and cosmetic items such as dental care, soap, shampoo, perfume, etc. can be stored. These bags are often used when traveling or in daily life to keep personal items organized and handy.

Wash Bag:

The term "wash bag" puts a bit more emphasis on the purpose of the bag, namely storing items used for body care and washing. "Washing" here refers to the care of skin and hair. A wash bag can typically have larger dimensions and is often designed for use in the bathroom or other washing facilities. Often, a wash bag offers a hanging option.


What should be in a men's toiletry bag?

The ideal toiletry bag for men should be precisely tailored to your individual needs as a man, the available space in the suitcase, the destination, and the planned duration of the trip. Here is a selection of indispensable essentials and cosmetics that could make a useful addition to your toiletry bag:

Toothbrush and toothpaste: The basis for fresh breath and thorough oral hygiene that should not be missing on any trip. If you use an electric toothbrush, remember to pack the appropriate attachments.

Soap or shower gel: For body care on the go.

Shampoo and conditioner: Choose small, leak-proof bottles.

Deodorant: Stick, roll-on or spray. Choose your preferred variant, taking into account the weight and volume.

Disposable razors or shaver: Depending on your preference. If you use an electric shaver, do not forget the charger.

Nail scissors and tweezers: For manicure and precise hair removal.

Hairbrush or comb: Depending on the length and type of your hair.

Face cream: Especially in winter or in dry climates.

After Shave or beard oil: If you like to care for your beard and/or have sensitive skin.

Lip balm: To protect against dry or chapped lips.

First-aid kit: Depending on the destination. Think of painkillers, plasters, and possibly disinfectant or insect repellent.

Earplugs and eye mask: Especially if you are sensitive to noise and light.


Additional accessories for the toiletry bag

Make your travel routine easier with various accessories for your toiletry bag:

Travel towel: Light, space-saving, and quick-drying.

Washcloth or sponge: Depending on your personal preference.

Soap dish or soap bag: Especially if you prefer solid soap to liquid soap.

Shampoo bars: Environmentally friendly, practical, and space-saving. Ideal for air travel as they are not subject to liquid restrictions.

Travel bottle set: For refilling from larger containers. Make sure they are leak-proof.

Hook or loop: To hang up the wash bag if it does not already have one.


Wash bags for men in various designs

The selection of toiletry bags for men is diverse. In terms of material, you can choose between canvas, nylon, synthetic leather, or genuine leather. Regarding the design, the sky is the limit: From classic to modern, from plain to patterned – everything is possible. In terms of colors, the classics like black, brown, or natural tones are in demand, but more and more men are also choosing colorful models that stand out. The interior layout is just as varied: Some bags have many compartments and zipped pockets, others convince with a simple design and one main compartment. There is something suitable for every type and requirement.


Our tip: Cleaning and care of the toiletry bag

Regular cleaning and care of your toiletry bag not only increases its lifespan but also ensures that the contents remain hygienically clean. If a spill occurs, act immediately to prevent stains. A damp cloth is often enough for simple dirt. For a more thorough cleaning, use a mild detergent and wash the bag by hand. Avoid submerging leather parts in water and let the bag air dry. Regular impregnation protects the bag from water and dirt. Leather bags should also be treated with special leather care products from time to time to prevent the material from drying out.
