The Perfect Artifact (Bag)
Hlaska, the Northern California-based luxury leather-goods label– which draws inspiration from nature, science, architecture and engineering–has just debuted a stylish new bag for fellow aesthetes. The Hlaska Artifact Weekender is based on an Old World archeologist’s field bag of the sort safari-suited gents used to take with them when discovering Tutankhamen’s tomb. Handmade in Costa Rica from vegetable-dyed Italian saddle leather, the rugged-looking case features sturdy contrasting topstitching and deceptively placed pockets for all your essentials (flask, maps, books, a magnifying glass, say). Available in cognac or brandy and priced at $795, it adds an element of adventurous sophistication to any weekend getaway.
