Samuel Bail and Abel Samet spent years in pursuit of a well-designed, high-quality overnight bag that could transition seamlessly from situation to situation, be it a quick business trip or a casual weekend away with friends. The former financiers founded Troubadour (troubadourgoods.com) in London 5 years ago to offer a classic, durable bag that married function and style – one you’d happily carry with you for years and years, one that would age beautifully and hold within it the many stories of your life adventures. It was from this idea, along with the many talented artisans whose handiwork is responsible for these products, that Troubadour was born.
The Troubadour name pays homage to the stories surrounding these artisans, as well as the stories your bags will witness in your life travels. It takes its roots from the travelling minstrels – storytellers – of days gone by. The entire Troubadour collection is handcrafted using the most exceptional Italian vegetable-tanned leather and bespoke materials. Each piece is designed to accompany you across your life travels, and age beautifully.
