Kerouac Bag: Black


* * * * *

“There was nowhere to go but everywhere, so just keep on rolling under the stars.”

We have always wanted to make the perfect traveling bag, and so we present to you The Kerouac Bag, a tribute to Jack Kerouac, the American novelist / poet who had first inspired in us a love for the road. In the terrible beauty of the 50s he had traveled across America, hopping from city to city in a beat-up truck, a bottle of beer in his left hand and a cigarette in his right, making his way, hoping to arrive at some place or other. In 1957 he immortalized this rambling journey in his classic novel “On the Road”, a book that was to later change the lives of countless, countless young, dreamy, restless people.

This is the third edition of a project that began 2012. Time is the essence in this collaboration and the journey is the destination.
