Monk FactsA good wash bag is an essential item when travelling, and a good wash bag means a big, tough wash bag. You don’t want to be limited, even for a weekend away, by a stingily small wash bag, having to make do with a toothbrush and travel-sized tube of toothpaste. This wash bag or ‘Travel Kit’ from Frank Clegg has it all: thick, supple tumbled calf leather, tough Sunbrella lining, a military-grade RiRi zipper, and a handy pocket and handle. It is a wash bag that can take anything your travels throw at it, whilst looking better and better the more it is used. Leather goods should be tough but elegant. A man’s briefcase should last the duration of his career and its patina should be a record of his decades of meetings, late nights and countless commutes. It should be built to stand up to years of use and all kinds of weather, but still look good enough to impress a colleague. Frank Clegg knew all this when he started out in the mid 1970s and he has spent the intervening decades refining his craft and sourcing the best materials to transform this ideal of what leathergoods should be into concrete form. Clegg specialise in the use of harness leather, a full-thickness cowhide that has been treated extensively with hot grease and waxes to give it flexibility, smoothness and depth of colour. Only thick, perfect hides can be used and it is an expensive process, but the leather produced is the only material that can be used for the rigid, durable pieces for which Clegg is renowned.
