Parabellum Duffle Bag


Free range American bison is not just for the gourmets, any longer. Parabellum, a brand of exquisitely designed and seemingly indestructible accessories is making some severely stylish goods. The texture and look of the bison leather is unique and dapper. Parabellum uses military grade ceramic hardware and lines the pieces with Kevlar enforced lambskin – needless to say, you’re going to own this bag for awhile.

Parabellum was started by Mike Feldman and Jason Jones. Creative director Jones pulls inspiration from his Hopi roots, the antique store he grew up in and his apprenticeship with LA-based designer Henry Duarte.

The bison bags can be found at Bergdorf Goodman (in NYC), Maxfield (in LA) and The Webster (in Miami).
