Stubble & Co: Style and practicality meet refined comfort in bags designed for those who travel

By Melanie Kruger  |  November 12, 2020

Of all the things that 2020 has been to us, one thing it hasn’t been is the year of luxury travel we’d hoped for – in fact, of much travel at all. But while staying at home has fast become the norm over tropical beach getaways, it’s provided plenty of time to daydream over the next big trip, and if you’ve got big plans for 2021, then there’s no time like the present to start getting prepared.

You don’t have to have designs on jetting off on a long-haul flight to need a functional travel bag, and for every holiday type, the experts at Stubble & Co have got a style for you.

British-designed, high-quality bags handcrafted for long-lasting quality

Ben Watkiss, founder at Stubble & Co. said: “We’ve made it our mission to create tough, durable and highly functional bags that are designed for all occasions – so, whether you’re heading to a festival, travelling Europe or simply planning a five-star getaway to the big smoke, our travel bags have got you covered.

“Our bags are built to last and built for adventure, featuring hardy, waterproof exteriors and ergonomically designed structures, with each material, compartment and strap carefully thought-out to ensure maximum comfort and functionality – and all without compromising on quality or style.”

As a brand that places sustainability at the forefront of everything it does, it certainly has our vote. Offering an in-house repair service and offsetting its transportation carbon footprint, Stubble & Co even creates some of its range from recycled plastics, and uses only 100 per cent recyclable packaging.

A bag for every occasion
