Product description:

“Ensuring longevity of the product is one of the cores focuses of dwij”

Duffel bags originated as a rug sack, in which military personnel could carry their essentials. They would often contain blankets rolls, which would naturally take the shape of a cylinder. The shape of a duffel bag is designed to carry more items in as less space as possible, with a zipper that running its length. This leads to an ‘open’ shape, which is the most important feature of a duffel bag and makes it adaptable to carry any bulky item. Today, duffel bags are an indispensable item of any travel kit, and also used as gym or athlete bag. When it is out of use, the bag can be rolled into a relatively smaller shape.


The material for this variety of bag largely comes from post-industrial denim, and also from post-consumer jeans too. The bag takes a very unique appearance with carefully chosen patches joined together, while at the same time ensuring that the bag retains its strength. To take care of the hygiene requirements, all the material that enters our workshop is industrially washed in a rigorous manner. In addition, our production process also ensures that the bag looks fresh and equivalent to a virgin product.


As always, we believe that longevity of the bag is of utmost importance. The stitching has been calibrated for providing extra strength. Thus, be rest assured that the bag can carry more weight, and can last longer than you imagine. Our duffel can truly be used in any manner that you may like!


Ideal usage: Gym, athlete, overnight travel
