Dopp Kit - Toiletry Bag in Horween's Toasted Coconut Dublin

Dopp Kit - Toiletry Bag in Horween's Toasted Coconut Dublin


My friend said he needed a dopp kit since he was frequently traveling. Once I had completed the dopp kit after some quick design changes at the last second, I came up with this design.  I loved it so much, I had to make one for myself so I could get rid of the cheap plastic one I inherited 20 years ago, and also immediately wanted to put it in the shop.  My friend loves his so much he can't wait to share it with everyone he can during his travels.

The Dopp Kit measures approximately 3.5" tall by 4" deep and 8" wide.

The carry strap acts as a closure keeping the top flap shut during travel, however, simply pull on the strap in the front and open up the hatch to access your toiletries.

The Leather

Made with 4-4.5 oz Horween Toasted Coconut Dublin, this leather is waxy and has a beautiful pull-up when stresses are put into the leather, giving it a marble look.

Here are the specifics on what makes up Horween's Dublin leather:

  • Full Grain: Leather that has its surface left completely intact, showing all natural characteristics of the hide.
  • Vegetable Tanned: A tanning method that employs vegetable liquors derived from tree barks. This method of tanning is very traditional and takes longer to achieve than chrome tanning.
  • Aniline: Dyes and finishes that contain no pigment.  When used on leather they provide a rich, clear stain that allows the natural character of the article to be seen.
  • Fat Liquored: Leather that has been nourished and conditioned with emulsified oils.
  • Pull-up: The temporary lightening of certain leathers when folded. This is caused by displacing oil and waxes.
"More rustic than our base Essex line, Dublin is a veg tan infused with a rich blend of natural waxes and then hot plated. It has all the supple characteristics of Essex with a darker surface color that showcases the natural grain.” - The Tannery Row

The Thread

This is a waxed brown colored polycord from Maine Thread Company out of Lewiston, Maine USA. The thread here is .040” medium weight and is stitched using a Saddle-Stitch or Double-Stitch where two needles go through the same hole in opposite direction allowing for a stronger stitch than most commercial sewing machines.
