It’s a shiny new year and it’s a perfect time to plan your next getaway. We’ve been dreaming of far-flung destinations in the Stitch & Hide office and we can’t wait to go there with our ultimate leather travel collection.
The five-piece collection is handcrafted from vegetable tanned leather and features a go-anywhere leather weekend bag, practical hip bag, the all-important passport holder, roomy toiletry bag, with the set completed by a luggage tag.
We asked the Stitch & Hide team about their favourite places they’ve discovered and where to next!


Taylor – Wholesale

Where is your favourite travel destination?
One of my many favourite places to travel to is an island called Mallorca in Spain! The most beautiful little Spanish Island I have ever laid my eyes on. I love it so much I have been twice now!
 
Why is it your favourite?
I love the Spanish culture and the people are all super friendly, and of course the food and Sangria… and the nightlife! The landscape of Mallorca is so beautiful and very scenic.
 
Where is your favourite destination in Australia?
I would really love to get over to WA and do a van trip down the coast. Esperance looks absolutely stunning and a must see.
 
What are your travel essentials?
My most used travel items are the Weekender and the Jett Toiletry Bag. I travel to Sydney quite often and they always come with me! Couldn’t go without them.
 
Where’s your next or your dream destination?
I would love to visit Tahiti - one of my dream destinations!

Marlen - Creative & Marketing

Where is your favourite travel destination?
I usually like to explore different countries and not go to the same place over and over again. But I do go regularly to Los Angeles, for work and play.

Why is it your favourite?
I love the colourful lifestyle in Venice Beach. It never gets boring at the Venice boardwalk with all the street performers, the busy skate park and the funky shops. I love watching the surfers at sunset at the Venice pier. Abbot Kinney Boulevard has great breakfast places and bars for a night out.

Where is your favourite destination in Australia?
Byron Bay is my all-time favourite. I travelled most of Australia by car and Byron felt home straight away. I would love to explore Australia a little more in a van as I haven't done the coast south of Sydney or the Kimberleys up north.

What are your travel essentials?
I like to travel light and on the plane I use only my Hamburg Backpack for my essentials. For easy access I’m always wearing my Bailey Hip Bag, which carries my phone and charger as well my Atlas Passport Holder with my passport, cards, cash and my boarding pass. I’ve got all the travel pieces from Stitch & Hide!

Where’s your next or your dream destination?
Next trip will be Sri Lanka. I’m excited for the little beach towns, scenic train rides and yummy food. I’ve actually just booked it!

 



Cassie - Press & Media

Where is your favourite travel destination?
It’s so hard to pick one! I loved Turkey for the culture and vast difference to Australian life. Greek Islands for sun and lots of fun! And Italy for the food and drink.


Why is it your favourite?
I travelled through Turkey when I was 21 and it was such an awakening of the senses to experience such a rich and vibrant culture, it made me think – this is what travelling is about.


Where is your favourite destination in Australia?
Angourie on the Northern NSW coast. We had our honeymoon here, it was the perfect place to unwind after the wedding madness! It’s a tiny place with an amazing café and one top class restaurant. Surrounded by National Park and beautiful beaches.


What are your travel essentials?
I love my Willow Backpack. It’s small enough to not get too heavy when you’re out and about all day, but still big enough to hold everything I need. A good lip balm is a must, sunscreen, passport and travel cards.


Where’s your next or your dream destination?
Dream destination – Morocco or Mexico. Next destination will be Fiji, I’ve just had a baby so our travel style will change for a while. Everyone raves about Fiji being an amazing and child-friendly destination.

 



Brodie - Production

Where is your favourite travel destination?
It would have to be Hampii in South India, so far…

Why is it your favourite?
It has such a surreal landscape. An ancient city nestled amongst hills and valleys, scattered with temple ruins, palm trees, and bizarrely balancing boulders. An obscure desert oasis that falls nothing short of paradise in my eyes.

Where is your favourite destination in Australia?
That’s hard to say but I love the East Coast. From Eden down South, to Byron in the middle, to Port Douglas in the far north. Give me coastlines and palm trees and I’m probably gonna love it. And to completely contradict everything I just said I would also say my hometown city of Melbourne is always a treat to return to.

What are your travel essentials?
I like to travel light. Wallet, Phone, Charger, Toothbrush, Atlas Passport Holder and a book, or two, or three.

Where’s your next or your dream destination?
Japan – for the love of traditional arts and good design.
