The Parma Duffle Bag is made with premium full grain calfskin leather. Parma collection leathers are hand tanned in Santa Croce, Italy using only chestnut extracts and natural oils. We call this Etruscan style tanning because the process dates back to the Etruscan period in Tuscany. Each Parma skin is carefully selected - only soft shoulder sections qualify because this leather is supple, soft, and has the least amount of natural blemishes. Parma leather looks better with age - each bag takes on a unique look and darkens like a saddle over time. Parma is leather tanning the natural way. Made in Italy.

The way leather bags were crafted in the old days - great quality!

I chose this over the other floto duffle bag for 2 things: the zipper is NOT nylon, but brass, hence it would see me through to my last days. The other reason is that the craftsmanship is superb, not a stitch astray, all in perfect symmetry. In other words, this is a well-made and classy bag, similar if not better than those Louis Vuittons. I made the mistake of checking this bag in once at the airport as I was tired of carrying it (I am 54 yrs old, 5'2" and about 125 lb.) So of course the leather got rubbed the wrong way (no pun) but still looks like it gracefully aged (again, no pun). If I were to buy this again, with my height and stature, I recommend getting the one with wheels. Not that the leather is heavy, in fact it is not. But I am just a tired old woman in between flights, is all.
