Crafted Bags & Luggage
We are an emerging luggage label. Our core design philosophy is to create products that make the travel experience better, enabling smoother transit & better organisation on a trip. We launched our label in 2019 and we are based in Gurgaon.
Team of Luggage Geeks
The photo you see above is of one of the walls in our workshop: the 2 frames in the centre are both patents - first one issued in 1972 to Barnard Sadow, an executive in a US-based Luggage firm. It was the first time wheels were attached to a luggage so that it rolled better. Second one issued in 1991 to Robert Plath, a US airline pilot. It was the first time an upright trolley was attached to a luggage for convenient handling. We internally call this the Luggage Wall of Fame!
Today, we all would take trolleys & wheels for granted in our luggage, but both inventions aren't from too long ago. These 2 frames in the backdrop are an inspiration to us as we brainstorm our next round of product ideas. Needless to say, we are a team of luggage geeks:)
Why the name ‘Assembly’
Few people realize how technical making luggage really is - dozens of varied components need to be brought together on an assembly line to create a single piece of luggage. In our early days, our team was debating which of these parts is most important in the luggage construction – is it the trolley? Is the wheels? Is it the zipper? We couldn’t hone in on any single part because each component has a significant role to play and without any one, the luggage is not fit for use. And then it hit us – that since it is the assembly department in a factory where the magic of a luggage product all comes together, let's call our label ‘Assembly’.
