TravelTeq Bags

"Most laptop bags were a bit boring and never had what I needed while on a short trip, so I created my own," says Maarten van den Biggelaar, the man behind TravelTeq. "Our bag is a combination of the finest Italian leather we could find and all the compartments you need." He'd know. The Dutch media entrepreneur (with tours of duty at Elle and Amsterdam's answer to MTV) is no stranger to the inside of a plane. So when he created his ideal bag, it had to be as luxurious as the suits he wore, but as durable as his well-worn suitcase. Hand crafted from Florentine vachetta leather, it's for the flyer not afraid of paying for an upgrade—which may explain the cigar compartment.

  • When not traveling for work, van den Biggelaar is in Italy, sailing off the coasts of Sardinia and Corsica.
