AA’s Frivolous Wants: Aviator Bag

My lust for leather goods continues this week with handmade deBruir goods from Ireland. In particular, feast your eyes on this custom Aviator Carry-on Bag that was specifically designed with the frequent flyer in mind.

Not only is it made from saddle making leather, so that it can endure any beating, it’s got a top opening flap so that you can readily access your stuff while flying. Did I mention that it’s insanely cool and that I’ve got a huge consumer good boner for it.

Be sure to head over to the Etsy shop which has all sorts of other great leather goods like laptop bags, eye glass cases, and leather stationary sets.

These goods are the product of Garvan de Bruir who “carries out finely crafted furniture in both a classic style and his more individual sculptural style.” What I like most is that he’s an artisan in the classic sense working on traditional commissioning basis for custom pieces.
