For a short weekend break or a weekend in the country, there are few if any travel options that turn the classic weekend bag. With a size that no problems yesterday as hand luggage on the flight and at the same time holds 2-3 change hitting the plastic cabin bags with horse lengths.

Overall, it is as with much else in the clothing industry that normally get the most product per Swedish krona from specialists in the field. By buying shirts from skjortmakare, shoes from shoe manufacturers and bags from väskmakare usually do not just pay for the product rather than the brand, but also a unique expertise in the field.
