These travel duffles are so roomy, beautiful, and comply with most carry-on luggage size limits. I take mine every time i travel, and decided to make some as Christmas presents for my friends and family this year.
They have two external pockets, and hard-weaing chunky zips. The external fabric, wool batting, and lining are quilted together for strength, and the handles have upholsters jute-webbing inside so they can handle any load. All internal seams are finished with Hong-Kong-style binding.
The purple one is for my Mum, who is going on a cruise mid-January, and the periwinkle one is for my friend, who loves weekends away.
These bags look great on their own, and especially with a great dress and heels!
