The Duffle/Duffel Design

Fernando’s design for this bag was based on a canvas duffle bag in IKEA. He liked the bag a lot – indeed buying one for our son – and made a leather variant. Did you know (I certainly didn´t!) that the name ‘duffle’ comes from the Belgian town of Duffel where they produced the heavy woollen cloth that duffel bags were originally made from? And yes, apparently you can spell it duffel or duffle.
