Labor Day Weekend: One Bag, Three Destinations

Labor Day weekend always offers an alluring array of possibilities for end-of-summer excursions. After booking the necessary plane tickets, coordinating with friends, and making restaurant reservations, the only thing left to do is pack! A few of us are sharing what we plan to pack in our Tucker Robbins Weekender Bags as we prepare to depart for three very different Labor Day destinations. These exquisite bags are handmade in Guatemala using naturally dyed textiles and supple leather accents. We love how they’re big enough to hold all every necessity, small enough to fit in overhead space, and stylish enough that they don’t compromise aesthetics for utility.
