The company's mission:
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.
A new pretty item is on my lust list: the Meehan Utility Bag and the Bar Rollup from Moore & Giles, which is a Virginia-based company only about 40 minutes from my parents home. Moore & Giles was founded in 1933 and still have family at the helm!
As listed on the Moore & Giles website:
Designed in partnership with celebrated mixologist Jim Meehan, this stylish yet functional utility bag and bar roll-up feature a myriad of organizational compartments and elasticized pockets for the professional bartender or bar enthusiast to transport tools essential to the craft. Chefs and culinary enthusiasts can also use it as a roll-up for transporting knives and other tools.
I am always proud to support Virginia businesses, especially luxury goods! Read about their incredible selection of leathers, here. The set is for $740, or you could get the Meehan for $660 and the Bar Rollup for $150.
These remind me of a classic male accessory, the beautiful leather and broken-in canvas satchel. However, these pieces are on another level in terms of their fine construction and how functional they are for travel. Perfect for picnics, weekend trips, or horse races.
