— Troubadour & Sunspel collaborate on a limited edition of the perfect set of travel bags. All made in a new lightweight waterproof fabric.

Troubadour and Sunspel, two leading brands in contemporary British design, introduce a new limited-edition range of bags in a specially developed lightweight waterproof fabric

The new technical canvas combines two inspirations: Sunspel’s long heritage of producing beautiful natural cotton fabrics, and the technical performance of Troubadour bags. This means the fabric has a natural look and feel, while also being waterproof and extremely hard-wearing.

Three styles of bag have been made in the new fabric, in a limited edition of 30 pieces each: the Pathfinder Briefcase, Troubadour Tote, and Slipstream Rucksack. The deep navy fabric creates a stunning contrast with the bags’ brushed silver hardware.

“Troubadour’s clean designs, functionality and exceptional build quality speak volumes to me and I’ve personally been a customer for over 5 years, long before I first met Samuel and Abel. Sunspel and Troubadour share a great many values and we’re delighted with this collaboration with another respected and dynamic British company. The Sunspel customer loves to travel and the Troubadour customer loves timeless style – and this collection brings those elements together perfectly.”

Nicholas Brooke, Sunspel CEO

All three bags feature our signature clean lines and performance-based design. There are super-smooth zippers, pockets for anything you need to keep handy (including a padded pocket that holds a 16-inch laptop), super-comfy shoulder straps, and handles made from vegetable-tanned Italian leather.

Samuel Bail, Troubadour co-founder, says:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to work with Sunspel on this new collection. Our exciting collaboration has led to the creation of a premium waterproof fabric that combines comfort, performance and durability. This fabric is perfect for making bags that offer refinement and versatility on every occasion, whether you’re heading for the boardroom or the beach.”

The Troubadour x Sunspel collection will be available at, Sunspel stores and from 1st April, retailing from £245 for the tote and £375 for the rucksack and briefcase.
