Loving L'Indochine's travel collection

L'Indochine is the baby of my mom pegs Char Carlos and Leona Panutat. I know Leona from her styling days in magazines and she introduced me to Char who knows my husband from college and then I find out her husband is the cousin of my husband's dear friend. Woah. Did ya get that? Nope? Well, all I meant to say is... small world!

And that world Leona and Char have definitely explored! I even featured them in BABY Magazine because they're just so darn jetsetting women! But don't mistake them for tourists. They travel the world for work. They're especially passionate about everything in Asia and they will cross rivers and climb mountains seeking artisanal finds in cultural villages and craft markets. Cross my heart this is the truth!
The background, by the way, is a pouf we bought from L'Indochine. We love that pouf!

Leona and Char say, “We travel for a living searching for the most beautiful pieces to bring home.” Their trips have taught them to adopt a system that works for them, and this inspired them to create a travel collection that might work for us, too. "It was only natural for us to create our own travel essentials. Pieces that we knew we needed but couldn't find elsewhere. We wanted them sturdy, functional yet still very L'Indochine.” 

What Char and Leona came up with are definitely as eye-catching as they are functional. I have a lovely tote from the Ikat-Stripe style which is just love! The L'Indochine ladies say that all the pieces from the Travel Collection are "made of sturdy canvas and tough leather, they have special details like the Hmong pockets and tassels that give them something extra. They're also very limited in quantity and no two are exactly the same.”

“Our customers can expect beautifully made, quality bags and accessories that only get better with time. They are the perfect sizes and styles to take with you everywhere,” Char and Leona conclude. Check them out!
