Welcome to our new Traveller Two-Piece Collection, handmade with care in our Sydney, Redfern Studio, by our fabulous craftsmen. Our mission was to create a collection that had a minimal aesthetic and was incredibly practical and versatile. Ultimately making our usually hectic travel incredibly easy and chic.
Our traveller collection is soft, subtle, sturdy and flexible. Made to overfill or carry as arm candy. In this collection we offer two superior leather, transeasonal companions tailored to suit anyone no matter their style preference.
There is always a back story to each collection and the Traveller Collection is not different. When we moved to Melbourne couple of years ago, I was constantly travelling back and forth to my Sydney Studio. I often looked like the bag lady with my many bags overflowing and thought it was time to design an overnight bag big enough to hold a couple of days clothes and of course some of my different samples and materials. I needed a bag I could take on as hand luggage, had many practical pockets to keep me organised and one I could attach my Melbourne jacket to as I definitely, 90% of the time, would not be wearing it in Sydney. Then of course when I started designing I wanted to make the perfect sized toiletry bag that could hold all my essentials. And there you go, after numerous prototypes and trials on my many trips, we have the final Weekender and Toiletry bag. Now it is an argument between my husband and I who gets to take the Traveller when we go away.
The Traveller Weekender – all the details
An understated look for an intelligent and stylish traveller, male or female, our weekender tailors to your trip needs. With its minimalist and structured appearance, clean lines, geometric form and flexible interior; it’s the perfect tool to pack up and leave with, no matter your destination. Whether it’s for a weekend getaway or a well-deserved super break the Hills & West Weekender will be your reliable go-to. Carry yours over your shoulder with the top extended handles or attach the grosgrain shoulder strap to go cross-body and hands-free on your travels.
The Weekender Bag features an external leather easy access pocket so that you may securely store all your important items, at a quick unzip away. Internally lined with premium linen one side with a full length zipped pocket and the other with two open pockets for your essentials like socks and underwear. The matt two-way zip also has a fastening so you can ensure your bag is always securely fastened.
And to top it all off we have front and back open side straps so you can add your coat or winter warmers for easy carrying. It is also dimensionally perfect should you choose to use it as carry-on luggage. Perfectly stylish and functional in so many aspects if we must say so ourselves.
The Traveller Toiletry – all the details
Made to be a companion piece with the Weekender but capable of standing on its own is the Hills & West Toiletry Bag. With a flexible interior and exterior you will be amazed at how much you can fit into it this grooming organiser. Made from quality black calf leather with a caviar grain to promote texture this small yet roomy and versatile piece will be the staple you choose to carry and store all of your essentials.
