Brief Portrait: Souve Bag Company

In the meantime, we have arrived at Kurzportrait # 5 and this time I am not returning to a classic fashion label. But at least one is with the Souve Bag Company considered here a little closer to the fashion area, as with Zippo, which I have brought you in the short portrait #4 closer.

As I already know, I briefly take a look at the history of the respective label in my short portraits, give a glimpse into the current lookbook through the photos distributed in the article and present two to three beautiful pieces, which I like well, from the current program. But now enough of the introductory words and much fun with the short portrait of Souve Bag Company.

Who Or What Is The Souve Bag Company?

The Souve Bag Company was founded in Munich by Hendrik Boeing about four years ago, 2011. Since then, the company has stood for avant-garde and timeless bags made of high-quality leather and a robust canvas. The current offer can also be divided into just these two areas, with the leather segment being the higher-priced market segment and the canvas segment serving the medium-priced market.

I find personally but already times quite well, that one tries to open up to different markets and is not only in the high-price segment on the road. In addition, the products, both leather and canvas, point to the fact that the focus is always on the combination of useful and aesthetic demands and looks, from the idea finding to the final product.

What appeals to me at the bags of Souve Bag Company is the extremely minimalistic design, which is very reserved and simple, something I appreciate very much in both clothes and accessories.Because by the use of such a simple, yet chic design, you are not in danger to buy something which is already out in a year. Rather, this minimalist approach ensures that the style is timeless, but not necessarily boring, as seen in the company’s products.

Furthermore, the bags are characterized by excellent craftsmanship and longevity. The entire collection, consisting of canvas bags, which show a rough, uncomplicated character as well as the leather line, which has a minimalist, more classic approach, can be found in the SOUVE store, in Brunnstraße 7 in Munich’s old town or in the onlineshop of the company. The bags of the Souve Bag Company are also available in selected shops in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.

A few words I would now like to lose to the two pocket segments of the company before I then introduce you my favorite pieces from the shop of Souve.

Pocket Line Made Of High Quality Calfskin

As mentioned above, the line made of high-quality calf leather clearly reflects a timeless style. The current pocket line consists of shoppers, backpacks, City Sacs, Travel Bags and Overnighters, all made in Italy. In the production process, you can rely entirely on the experience of an Italian family business already in existence since 1902.

The collection of calf leather is supplemented by accessories such as iPad cases and wallets, which are available in Classic Black and-for AW15/16-also in Midnight Blue combined with gold-colored zippers. The high-quality Italian calfskin already mentioned makes for a particularly clean look with an exceptional grain.

More Variety In The Canvas Line

Souve’s canvas line also focuses on a reduced design with a certain tendency to understatement. This bag line is available in four colors as well as ten different styles, which gives a good picture when traveling or on the way to the office.

Among the notable details are, for example, high-quality leather straps and YKK hardware, which give the bags an individual look and ensure durability. The slightly waxed surface protects the inner life from external influences and gives each model with its own patina. Backpack and Overnighter in addition to duffle bags of different sizes count as flagship of the canvas collection.

Interesting Pieces Of The Souve Bag Company

The Canvas Backpack Blue is, in my opinion, exactly the right companion for spring. Through his powerful blue, he immediately jumps into the eye and loosens each outfit in color. The design has ensured that this is very clean, clear and minimalistic. So Souve has limited itself to the essentials in the design of the backpack.

The backpack has a large inner pocket, which also has a compartment for a laptop up to 15 “inserted as well as two receptacles for pens. On the left side of the backpack is a short handle to carry the backpack as a bag. The backpack was made from 24oz canvas, which was additionally waxed slightly, so the backpack gets its water-repellent effect.

Partial accents are attached to the rucksack, by the use of cow leather, which in time gets a very nice, unique patina. All zippers are from the Japanese quality manufacturer YKK. You can find more information about the Canvas Backpack Blue here.
A duffle bag must not be missing in my selection. Already in the Janaur I have told you about how the Desert Canvas Holdall performs well on journeys, if this was not in use, then the Canvas Duffle Bag Large with a capacity of 40 liters would find their way to me.

Like the previous backpack, Souve’s Duffle Bag is made of 24oz canvas. Also with this one sets on a light waxing, which gives the Duffle Bag a water-repellent effect. Those of you who have been traveling often know how practical this is because it can happen that you are traveling in the pouring rain and do not want your clothes to get wet.

The carrying handles and the carrying strap are made of high-quality leather, which over time gives a unique patina. The sand-brown canvas fits very well to the dark leather. Inside the bag is a separately lockable compartment, in which travel documents and other papers can be securely accommodated. With the size of the bag, the company has taken care to keep the measurements for hand luggage in the aircraft. You can find more information about the Canvas Duffle Bag Large here.
A classic Leather Travel Bag in black is also a must. The travel bag, as the name suggests, is a classic travel bag in large format. Due to the size and the well thought-out division, the bag provides space for the complete travel tools, even for longer journeys.

Inside the bag is a zipped inner pocket for smaller items and a large side pocket. The bag can be worn in everyday life with two attached handles or can be comfortably shouldered with the high-quality, adjustable shoulder strap.

For the production of the bag, the company uses very fine, best Italian calf leather with a unique structure. All metal parts and zippers are also from Italy. Further impressions and photos of the bag can be found here.

I hope you liked the current short portrait. I still have a treat for you, because if you have exactly watched, you have recognized the male model from the company’s lookbook. It is Florian Roser, which I asked a few questions in February: Looking outside: Uberding, the photos has created by the way his brother Simon Roser.
