Do you need to look business but bike commute to work? Bringing your climbing gear on that trip to New York but don't want to rock up with a huge duffel from The North Face? Meet Tucker & Bloom– a family run business with over 30 years experience of making a variety of hip, cleanly designed bags that will keep you organized on the go.
The collection of bags available from Tennessee based Tucker & Bloom are designed for people who want to stay organized while traveling around the city, need to look professional in certain situations, but want an alternative to the standard work or travel bag. The bags are produced from high quality, durable materials such as 1980 Denier ballistic textured basket weave nylon and leather that is a byproduct of the food industry.
Tucker & Bloom bags are all domestically made and in small batches using traditional European craftsman techniques. By selling exclusively through their own website, the company keeps more control over the manufacturing and skills required to meet the Tucker & Bloom quality standard.
