If you are looking to spruce up your wardrobe this season, the Graf & Lantz collection of accessories should be your first stop. The company specializes in creating all sorts of colorful bags for men and women, ranging in size from handbags
and messenger to travel and boat bags.
Our favorite is the black and grey Jaunt Tote made of merino wool felt and genuine leather. The bag is super sturdy, water resistant and large enough to carry everything you could ever need. There are two interior pockets on either side where you can put business cards or other small items. The eight-inch handle drop allows you to carry the bag comfortably on your shoulder or you may hold it as a tote by the handles. The magnetic snap closure also protects the interiors from outside exposure. The Jaunt Tote retails for $249.
All of the Graf & Lantz bags are handmade in the United States with merino wool felt from Germany and genuine leather. If the bag gets dirty, simply wipe the leather with a soft damp cloth. Obviously, it is important to avoid wet surfaces, but the felt is naturally dirt resistant, making it super easy to keep clean.
The Graf & Lantz bags range from boat bags for the girl on the go, the daily bag perfect for the office or student and the stylish Zenzi collection for the fashionista. They have recently introduced the new Slate travel collection for the world traveler. In addition to bags and totes, be sure to check out their beautiful assortment of iPad and iPhone cases, key fobs as well as felt bowls and wine carriers.
