We are honored that among other outstanding designs our Porsche Design Carbon Weekender was awarded “Best of the Best”.

The Porsche Design Weekender stands out with its perfect symbiosis between a classical shape and an innovative combination of materials. The use of carbon fibers, which has become essential in other industries such as motorsport, gives the bag a technical look and feel which is accentuated with individual nappa leather elements.

This stylish bag impresses with the aesthetic use of real carbon fibres. Light and robust, it projects a graphic and masculine appearance. The combination with black nappa leather complements the bag’s modern language of form, lending it a highly elegant touch. Furthermore, the design of the pocket access featuring an oversized two-way zipper is well thought-out in terms of function and ergonomics. Therefore, this bag opens and closes intuitively at any time.
