Late last year, my husband and I were out for jaunt and spotted an Airstream in a shopping center. Airstreams aren’t uncommon, but when they’re parked in a high-end shopping center and there are leather goods everywhere, then it calls for further investigation. We discovered Moore & Giles and some of the finest natural leather goods we’d seen in quite some time.
Founded in 1933 in Lynchburg, Va., Moore and Giles is dedicated to designing and developing the most innovative and luxurious natural leathers for the high-end hospitality, aviation and residential interior design industries. In January 2007, they introduced a collection of leather bags and accessories as an additional avenue to showcase the inherent beauty and timeless appeal of natural leathers.
My husband loves artisan goods as much as I do and fell in love with pretty much everything they had in the back of their custom Airstream trailer. He bought the Donald Dopp Kit in Tuscany Cognac — a must for the well-groomed traveler. The roomy compartment has a waterproof lining and two interior zipped pockets. It’s perfect for when he’s traveling for work, as well as weekend trips. It carries everything he needs, without him having to worry about what could wind up on his clothes.
When I take the bag and look at it really closely, you can see the quality not only in the leather and the way it was treated during the tanning process, but in the actual manufacturing of the product. The stitching is immaculate and you can’t tell where the leather ends and the lining begins as it is seamless.
The mission of Moore & Giles, Inc., is to be the leading designer and supplier of the world’s most unique and innovative leathers and accessories with a commitment to excellence in both quality and customer service, guided by the simple principles of honesty, fairness, integrity and common courtesy.
However, I might be able to convince him I need the Gail Portfolio. Wait. Leticia and I both might need the portfolio. Thank goodness it comes in different colors.
