VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY FOR FISCHER VOYAGE BAG. Unique hand-crafted USA leather Prairie bag makes UK debut
Brand new to the UK and now making its debut in the Luggage Department at the famous Harrods store in London is a unique piece of bespoke luggage, hand-crafted and made in America from 100% leather. Created and developed by University Lecturer, Steven Fischer, The Prairie Bag is hand-stitched by artisans in the American Midwest to Mr. Fischer’s strict brief of using only the very best quality materials & techniques to distinguish it from all other luxury travel bags worldwide.
Each Prairie bag is crafted from a single side of leather at the last remaining tannery in Chicago and hand-stitched by a master saddle-maker for two days in the tradition of fine leatherwork practiced in the Midwest since the 1800’s. A master blacksmith produces the buckles, the handle is hand-stitched by a harness-maker and the entire bag’s hardware is hand-machined solid brass.
It took Steven Fischer nearly a year to source all the bag’s component parts in the USA with quality & craftsmanship as the only requirements. It takes three months to make each bag, which at £8,250 is designed with the discerning luxury consumer in mind, hence its debut and sole appearance at Harrods.
Says Case CEO Stephen Spitz who sourced the bag from the USA: “The Prairie overnight bag exudes craftsmanship from every pore. It is a totally unique piece of luggage sold exclusively in the UK by Case at Harrods and we are honoured to have been selected by Steven Fischer to showcase it”
