Kuvert Travel Bags

How cool are these? And they fold flat for storage, which is just perfect.

The world in a bag. Sporty, casual and simple, the new KUVERT travel bags are the perfect companion for shopping, sports, weekends, parenting and travel. The unique look is the result of a ground-breaking use of custom-coated polyester fabric: each bag is cut out of a single piece, folded and welded along the edges. This allows the bags to fold flat for storage, yet the engineered expansion is inrivalled in spaciousness. The zippers run in both directions all the way to the base for easy packing and unpacking, and the carrying strap is removable. Kuvert bags are sturdy, water-proof and lightweight – sure to stand by you during your most exciting adventures.

Newspaper Cosmetic Pouch

Sorry for the infrequent posts to our travel section…lots happening here at BLTD (gift guide about to be unveiled, working on remodel, etc…) so please be patient with us.

Handmade from real newspapers, this roomy cosmetic bag is covered in water-resistant laminate and features a heavy duty zipper to keep all your belongings in check. Spot cleans easily (we all know how dirty those makeup bags can get!) and can do double-duty as a cute clutch. Handmade in Los Angeles. Due to the recycled nature of this bag, each is one-of-a-kind and will vary. Newspaper print can come from style, arts, travel, and home sections. Sorry, no choice of print.

Postalco Travel Wallet

I’ve yet to find an inexpensive travel wallet that I like, but in the meantime here are two that are nice to look at.

This wallet contains three sections, to keep your travel documents from traveling around…Postalco began in Brooklyn, New York. Curious about the international transport of mail, their logo is the carrier pigeon.
Carefully considered and beautifully handmade in Japan, their accessories simply cannot be improved upon.

Brillo Toothbrush Travel Set

Check it out- this toothbrush flicks open like a switchblade and has a nice leather carrying case so you can travel in style.

A journey by plane, train or automobile might not be the swift and sexy ride it once was, but that doesn’t mean we can’t at least make a stylish effort. The Brillo toothbrush by Chaki Murata for Metaphys in Japan is the perfect antidote. The ergonomically compact form acts like a switchblade, the brush head flipping out of the body with just a flick. When not in use, slip it into the well-constructed leather case. Ready for gifting, each black box comes equipped with three replacement brushes. The black brush holder comes with a white case; the white holder’s case is natural.

I swear by shoe bags. That sounds funny, but I mean it.

The bag is made from a sturdy cotton with a heavy duty cotton cord drawstring. One bag will hold a pair of shoes. Machine wash and dry.”

Measures 16″ L x 11″ W.

FlyLite (Remote Wardrobe Manager)

If you’re a frequent flyer and hate lugging your luggage around, there’s a service made especially for you. FlyLite will store items you frequently travel with in your own private ‘iCloset’, where you can drag and drop items you need for your next trip into your virtual suitcase, which will then be delivered (via real suitcase) to your hotel, “fresh, clean and ready to go.” Once you’re finished and ready to move on to another city, you give them a call and they’ll arrange for your suitcase to be picked up and returned, where your items will be cleaned and stored for next time. Luggage free travel sounds good, right? Of course it does: no waiting around the baggage carousel, no standing in lines to check in, not to mention less trips to the dry cleaners…all of that sounds spectacular, which is why it’ll cost you $100 per trip.
