PRODUCTION & DESIGN

This Denim, all purpose kit with rustic accents is meant to be passed on to future generations.

Denim wouldn't be an iconic material if it didn't have its complex history. When we hear Denim we immediately think of Jeans, which originated in Italy, more specifically the town of Genoa, Italy. As far back as the early 16th century, the fabric was designed and created for the town's Navy, who required all-purpose pants for their sailors who would work endlessly, come rain or shine. Genoa, or "Gênes" in french (which is where the word Jeans derives from) sold the fabric from their port, while the raw material was provided from Nîmes, and thus, over the years, "de Nîmes" slowly became "Denim".

The heavy-duty zipper is made by Japanese-founded and Brooklyn-based YKK, a zipper and hardware manufacturer widely respected in the worlds of fashion and accessories. The bottom features a heavier, double-layer overlay with double-stitched seams offering long lasting support. Seams are sewn using bonded nylon thread with a burned and melted finish offering no loose ends during your travel.

The term 'Dopp Kit' is derived from its inventor, Charles Doppelt, a leather artisan who immigrated to the United States in the early 20th century. The toiletry bag became relevant after Doppelt's kits were issued to millions of American military recruits during the Second World War. After the war, these roomy grooming cases continued to find favor among soldiers and civilian men and women alike.
