I’ve been looking for a bag to fit my passport and boarding pass. On my last trip, I used a manila file folder to hold everything. I know. Sad. I love function, but desperately needed some form (and a great zipper!) to go with it. Then I remembered one of my all time favorite brands — Comme des Garçons. Have you ever loved a brand that you don’t necessarily wear often, but you revere everything about it? That is CDG for me. Rei Kawabubo is in that pantheon of “design greats” in my world. And, the leather goods this company puts out are always functional AND beautiful. Take this little pouch. Beautiful leather, great size (8-1/2″ x 6-1/2″), and fantastic zipper. Affordable. All boxes checked! The discreet gold lettering adds that little touch of elegance without veering into over-branding mode.
My travel documents have found a new home!
NB: I love black, however, you can find these in other colors — even neon pink! So great.
Here’s where you can find them:
