The Feather collection comes from Hideo Wakamatsu, a designer who grew up in Tokyo where his family is the leading maker of traditional Japanese schoolbags, called randoseru. Before founding his own company, Hideo spent 10 years working with bag makers in Paris. You can see the influence of his artistic upbringing and European culture in his thoughtfully executed designs.
Hideo’s Feather bags are made from a lightweight, water-repellent nylon, reinforced by heavy nylon bands. They have plenty of storage pockets, strategically placed to make packing easier and to maximize every inch of space. Speaking of space, you won’t miss the heavy metal frames that weigh down other suitcases and take up precious cargo room. Hideo’s rolling Trolley bag has none of that. It’s soft-sided without compromising durability or style. You can even cinch the straps to make it smaller when you’re traveling light.
If durable, lightweight and stylish is on your travel agenda, this Grommet’s for you.
