Sandast Love Letter

Leather love letter

The idea of the Sandast Love Letter started years ago after a spontaneous visit from a young couple. I believe it was a Thursday afternoon when Mr. Pelikan and his fiance Suzanne happened to walk in to Sandast Studio. The couple lived on the West Side of Los Angeles and they rarely came Downtown, but happened to be in the neighborhood to try an acclaimed restaurant nearby. After dinner, they came into the studio and Mr. Pelikan told me that he'd long been looking for a nice travel duffle, but had a very hard time finding the right one. He really liked our old model "Roy" with its two main compartment feature, but he wanted to make a few changes and of course, I was very delighted to cater to his needs.

These were his needs:

A. Custom open pocket where his phone can be reached easily with his right hand.

B. He wanted extra zipper pocket alongside of his phone to store his travel documents and passports

The next day, Suzanne emailed me and we started to customize the bag even further, creating the very first "Love Letter". It turns out the couple's wedding was fast approaching so we decided to engrave their complete wedding vows on this new "Pelikan" duffle. I thank Mrs. Pelikan for allowing Sandast to be a small part of their special union. 

Since then, Mr. Pelikan has gone to several trips with his Pelikan and I have a feeling that Pelikan will remain his travel bag for rest of his life.
