A life well travelled is what we here at Est Headquarters all aspire to. Travel for us is the mainstay of our existence. So when we discovered this shared passion for travel with Stephen Kenn – we knew we would love his designs all the more for it.
Taking inspiration from the personal exploration and the ceremonial act of passing an object from one generation to the next, Kenn’s The Encounter Collection explores the stories that come from a life that has traversed the globe in wonder.
Made using vegetable tanned leather that has been hand stained and oiled to a deep cognac brown on the outer grain side and an olive drab stain and wax used on the flesh side, the 7 piece bag collection is intentionally unlined to reduce the amount of materials involved so as to produce a bag that will only improve with age and use.
Designed to take hard knocks and age with character – The Encounter Collection will tell the story of your travels like stamps within the pages of your passport.
