Melvill & Moon: Shop The Perfect Weekender Bag

Planning a weekend away this Spring? Have we got the perfect choice of modern weekender bags for you! Now available from Melvill and Moon.

So, what makes a great weekender bag, exactly?

The ideal weekender bag is a functional and versatile piece of luggage. It’s small enough to lug comfortably across your shoulder but it’s also spacious enough to contain all your precious items for a few days out of town.

Here are a few of our favourites:

Safari Duffel

Duffels make packing easier, whether you’re going on Safari or on a spontaneous trip with friends. Although they are quite stylish to look at and would easily fit the scene if found in the boot of a vintage Rolls, the idea is not to feel overly precious about them. Strap them to the roof rack or squash them into the hold of a bush plane. Both the medium and short Safari duffel by Melvill & Moon features a strong zip down the long side for easy access. They are lined on the interior, have a zip pocket for valuables, and the heavy webbing strap is conveniently offset for more comfort when carrying it.

Catalina Bag

Catalina is a beautiful, heavy-duty canvas bag featuring vegetable tanned leather and rolled leather handles. The bag is lined with interior pockets and features solid brass zips and heavy-duty buckles. The perfect companion whether you’re out roughing it in nature, or on a city escape with a loved one.

Roll Up Shopping Bag

The ‘must have’ Impulse bag rolled up in one’s luggage for a trip abroad. It takes no space whatsoever on the outward leg. Simply unroll when needed for extra carrying space.

Bulawayo Bag

The Bulawayo Bag bag is fully lined, has interior pockets, and is constructed from good strong cotton canvas. Thanks to the fine leather finishes around the zip and handles, the Bulawayo won’t look out of place in more refined surroundings.

Due to each item being one-of-a-kind the repeats on the fabric may differ. Each Melvill & Moon item is subsequently crafted by their master artisans and as such has a 4 week lead time.

Dar Es Salaam Day Bag

An expertly lined bag made of canvas and leather with a solid brass zip. Furthermore it features comfortable strong handles, inner and outer pockets; as well as a cushioned inner sleeve for your laptop.


Melvill & Moon is South Africa’s ‘retro Safari brand’. They manufacture high end Safari luggage, canvas Seat Covers, Campaign Furniture and Safari accessories. If you’re looking for the perfect weekender bag, then you’re certainly in luck. Shop our favourites featured above at Melvill & Moon.
