About the product
Consistent is sometimes not consistent enough. With our Long Weekender we wanted to take the adventure look to the extreme and create a homage to the classic expedition luggage. David Livingstone's luggage could have looked something like this on one of his numerous expeditions across 19th century South Africa. He discovered the famous Victoria Falls, was the first European to cross the Kalahari Desert and found the origin of the Congo.
The Long Weekender is a travel bag for longer weekend trips of up to 7 days. The bag can be hung 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, which can be opened quickly when needed. There is also a large zipped compartment on the back.
The bag has a high-quality finish. All friction points are trimmed with leather. All load points are additionally reinforced. The bottom of the bag is nobly quilted and padded.
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.
