Holiday excitement is in the air as our artisans merrily dash about the studio today, moving pieces between stations with expert care.

True labors of love, a round of our handsome Triumph briefcases are getting their finishing touches. Final round of paint: check! Final buff and polish: check! Final shine and hug goodbye: check! Nothing makes our artisans happier than to see their very hard work gleaming with finished pride as it’s being wrapped up to head out the door on its way to a new owner.

It’s important to us that our packaging reflects the hard work and attention to detail that goes into making each Lotuff bag, which is why our artisans take the time to inspect and wrap them by hand for the journey ahead.

Every completed bag is thoroughly inspected as a final confirmation that no errors have been made. Once we’re totally sure that each one is perfect, we write out a registration card to include in the bag as part of our lifetime guarantee. The whole piece will then be shined with our leather elixir to condition it and help protect against superficial damage—looking really gorgeous is an added bonus.

Elixired and tagged, these Triumphs and the rest of our completed bags will be stuffed to preserve their shape and prevent collapsing during shipping, while the handles are wrapped so they won’t bend. Adding a special final touch, a handwritten note is included on our domestically sourced letterpress stationery and added to each order, thanking its new owner for supporting our passion and wishing them a happy future with their new bag. Whether their destination is stateside or halfway across the world, we'll send all these bags out of the design studio knowing that no detail has been spared in making them the perfect gifts! 

We're continuing to accept orders this week, lovingly packaging and shipping all completed and available items through December 22nd.
