Travelteq was founded in 2009 by Michiel van Ogtrop and Maarten van den Biggelaar. Over a period of almost 10 years they build an amazing international brand and even greater following. Travelteq has appeared many times in publications such as the New York Times, Hypebeast, Esquire and Monocle.
After a hiatus of almost two years Travelteq relaunched in 2020.
We have since renewed our focus and changed our product offering, so it could very well be that you're unable to find some of the original Travelteq products in our store. However, they might come back in the future so stay updated through our social channels and newsletter.

All of our bags are made using Vacchetta leather from Tuscany. Vacchetta leather is very natural with minimal treatment, allowing it to age beautifully, although it is therefore fairly delicate. Our leather has a custom-developed light coating to better protect the bag from the elements and daily use.
Leather is durable and sturdy, however it does require some general maintenance to keep it in top form. Our Vacchetta, although lightly coated to aid protection and water-resistance, is a natural product and susceptible to damage.
For daily use, the leather can be regularly wiped with a clean, dry cloth to remove any surface dirt and dust. Once a month, or at initial signs of wear, using a leather lotion will keep the leather soft and supple.
More details on leather care can be found on our blog
As you know leather is a natural product. Our Vacchetta leather is tanned with natural products as well. This makes our leather some of the finest in the industry. At the same time it also makes it fairly delicate. That is why we have added a custom developed light protective coating to the leather on our bags. It will help to reduce scratches and other usage marks and makes it better protected against the elements and for life on the move.
Rain however is a different kind of external factor. Rain and leather don't go well together. If exposed to much water, you could potentially stain the leather of your bag. We therefore advice you to watch out carrying your leather bag in the rain. If you do get caught by a downpour we advice you to dry your bag with a dry towel as soon as you can to minimise the chance of stains.
You can read more on our blog on how to look after your bag.
Our bags will look better over time. It's one of the distinctive features of our Vacchetta leather. Depending on how you use it and how you look after it, the colour will most likely turn to a somewhat deeper tone of your chose colour. It will make your bag distinctively yours and that's what many of our clients find great about our bags.
Our nylon is Limonta® nylon. Limonta is the world's leading supplier and developer of high quality fabrics such as nylon. You won't find any better quality out there. However if you do... please let us know ;-)
Apart from our nylon and leather we have developed a custom-developed coating to better protect the leather from our bags. You won't see it however and that's exactly how it should be.
Additionally we have added zippers and other details in high-quality shiny nickel. These details have been tried, tested and perfected over the years.
We use the most sustainable methods we can find, without compromising the quality of leather that we use for our bags. The quality of our products ensure you can use them for many years. That's our way of being sustainable, creating products that people will use and love over a long period of time. No fast fashion, but genuine lasting craftsmanship. Some of our customers have had their bag for over 10 years and still use it on a daily basis.
