The CARTER

duffel travel bag

$1395

Stop being one of 1,000 people at your baggage carousel with a black suitcase. You’re better than that.

For all those times when art looked so good you needed to touch it - we designed a piece you can. And should.  This bag is a symphony - each detail in harmony with every other part of the bag and will not just surprise, but delight you. Disappearing handles gently sink back into the clean profile when not in use - design that pushes the border between engineering and magic. A two-way zipper extends all the way down each side for easier packing and finding that one shirt you need quick. A hidden zippered front pocket sweeps across the face of the duffel for your passport, phone and boarding pass so moving through the airport is a stroll in the moving walkway. I mean park.

Please Note: Your handmade product may take 7-14 days to craft in addition to shipping times. If you need your order by a specific day, e-mail us at orders@uphilldesigns.com

product information

Description

Travel and adventure are two of the core values in this family and every part of travel should bring you joy, including your luggage. We want you to glide through the transitions in your travel, whether from airport to airport or chateau to embassy with style, elegance, and security. Intentional angles make the Carter compact to the eyes, yet generous in carrying space - don’t compromise with a slouchy gym duffel again (and custom sizing is available should you need more space). You won't have to sacrifice packing room (there's enough for a multi-day trip) and you can still slip the Carter on board as a carry-on. A two-way zippered gusset allows the Carter to hinge open as wide as you need - when you need something at the bottom of your carry on, now you don’t have to dig through the entire bag or go without. The handles disappear with a quick push into the bag when not in use and the strap is detachable as needed.


Now you’re cool and relaxed even as chaos happens around you. Flight delay - no problem, spend more time cuddled up against the Carter. Packed baggage carousel, don’t worry, you will be able to spot your bag from afar. No more picking up multiple bags to check the tag. When the CARTER comes around the corner you’ll know damn well whose it is, plus, no matter how heavy you’ve packed it, the layered leather should pad distributes the weight comfortably. Oh, and everyone else will too as you leave them gawking in your wake.  Crafted from our full grain luxury Kodiak or Yukon leather so rugged so that WHEN it gets tossed around by baggage handlers it will only add patina and character and the cast-brass feet and reinforced leather bottom help to take protect the bag for a lifetime of travel.

At some point, a company put "genuine leather" on a product to trick you into buying it. Don't be fooled again. Let us send you a sample of the leather we use so you can see the difference in quality and color options for yourself (e-mail : leather@uphilldesigns.com)

customer & product care

handcrafted

There is no mass-manufactured answer to human experience. We are two humans designing and crafting pieces that we are obsessed with - they begin as one of a kind concepts and small details change piece to piece. Our LEATHER is characterized by small differences in dye, aberrations, range markings and varying grain patterns. We ask that you rejoice in the differences found in your specific piece. Learn more about our leather manufacturing processes here.

guarantee

We built it - we'll fix it. We’re the humans behind your product and we are dedicated to making sure you’re over the moon about your new heritage piece. Your product is intended for a lifetime of use - so please contact us if anything needs repairing or replacing. The best way is to send images and any explanation of the issue to repairs@uphilldesigns.com and we’ll respond with next steps.

leather care

Leather is an amazing material and with proper care our products will last a lifetime. Here’s what we ask. Keep it away from salt water. Buff out scratches with either your hand, or leather oil - this will aid in the rich ‘patina’ that is only possible in full-grain leather. Leather conditioner can treat leather that, after time, has begun to feel dry or brittle. Please test any oil or conditioner on a small, non-visible portion of your product. Oils and conditioners will darken the appearance of your product.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
