THE DUFFLE BAG FOR EVERY REASON AND SEASON
Whether you spell it “duffle” bag or “duffel” bag, the fashion and function of the Fillmore Duffle speak louder than any words could. The shape and design of this small duffle bag make it the perfect size for transporting items around town, making a trip to the gym, or packing for an overnight stay. As part of the 2020 collection, this new bag derives its name from the street in San Francisco where Minted’s customer-facing storefront is located. Our unique duffle bag designs and patterns to choose from are as diverse and full of life as the city itself.
THE DNA OF THE PERFECT DUFFLE BAG
While Minted loves celebrating the design of this 21st century Fillmore Duffle bag, the history of the original duffle actually dates back to the 17th century, over the pond in Duffel, a town in Flanders, Belgium. It was made out of a thick cloth they called the duffel cloth. Since their inception, duffle bags have been a key military accessory across the world and are still used by soldiers to store items.
Aside from military-grade use, duffle bags of many varieties have become a stylish and useful accessory, too! While shopping, you may come across gym bags that are made of lightweight and breathable materials. Some leather duffles take on a professional look and can be used to carry around important work documents and office supplies. Other duffles are positioned as an overnight bag. Minted’s Fillmore Duffle bag strives to be the one duffle to replace them all!
This small duffle bag is 19” x 10” x 8” and made of 100% premium heavyweight cotton canvas. It features 30” butter-soft leather straps for easy handgrip or to wear over the shoulder, two exterior pockets for accessories, and a zippered interior pocket to store your valuables. You can personalize the bag with a foil-pressed leather tag. This canvas duffle bag is perfect for many situations, including a girls’ getaway, weekend trip, or for tossing in the overhead compartment for a flight!
SPOTLIGHT ON DESIGN INSPIRATION
This newly-released bag comes in a variety of designs that are inspired by independent artists from all over the world. Because of this, you’re bound to find a design that fits the style and personality of the recipient — whether that’s a female relative, close friend, or a gift to yourself! Select from patterns that are floral, abstract, colorful, or minimalist. Opt for a pastel-colored duffle bag, bright red and blue duffle bags, or black and white duffel bags. After picking the bag that’s perfect for the recipient, personalize it with their name or initials, pressed with chic foil on a leather tag.
A GIFT SHE WON’T FORGET
The multi-purpose function of the Fillmore Duffle makes it the perfect gift for many different occasions. This canvas duffle bag is a great option for your best friend who’s always on the go or as a baby shower gift for a mother-to-be who will soon be carrying baby essentials around with her.
