How To Organise Your Travel With A Knomo Curzon Bag

Stylish well-made travel bags are SO hard to find. Until recently I had a simple Cath Kidston large bag as my carry on luggage for my travels. It did the job but was rather basic and was quite uncomfortable on my shoulder if I had to carry it for a long time. So when I was offered to review the Knomo Curzon leather tote bag I was really looking forward to trying it out.

Knomo London is a luxury bag and accessory company that make top quality items with the emphasis on the detailing and exceptional design. They focus on making bags that make every day easier, by having brilliant organisation features, including hidden pockets and multiple pouches to efficiently organise your life.




Curzon leather shoulder tote

The first thing that struck me when I saw the Curzon leather tote bag was that it seemed incredibly spacious. Measuring an ample 39.5 cm wide, 16cm in diameter and 27cm high, this bag is a really perfect size for a travel bag, the type where you can put everything in for your weekend away. It may not look that spacious but in fact, this bag is like Dr Who's Tardis due to its clever design.


Firstly the outside has two front pockets that have lovely strong zips. There is nothing worse than a dodgy zip! These front pockets also have RFID blocking technology. This helps protect you from 'electronic pickpocketing' from RFID skimming - reading the electronic chips that are in some credit cards passports and driving licences. Such a clever idea.


Secondly on the other side of the bag is another compartment with a strong magnetic popper, perfect to pop in a book or magazine.


Then the bag opens really wide. On the inside right, there is a large compartment, which is slightly padded and perfect to slip in your laptop, I can comfortably fit my 15inch Macbook pro inside with lots of room to spare. Also on this side is another large pocket, big enough to hold a book, Filofax or organiser perhaps.


On the inside left, there is a secure zipped compartment approximately 30 cm in length. Sewn into this side are two small pockets, suitable for your phone or a small purse, two credit card compartments and two pen compartments. 


This bag is undeniably fabulous. It is made of soft leather and oozes quality but what I was particularly impressed with was the finishing - the stitching is even, and dare I say it virtually perfect, the handles are slightly padded and of a decent length if you want to carry it or put it on your shoulder, and the metal zips feel strong and secure.  On the bottom of the bag are small metal studs to protect the base as well.

It also feels incredibly comfortable on your shoulder which I was really pleased about. The bag weighs less than a kilo which I think is great for a leather bag of this size, but if you wanted an ultra lightweight version, they also make the same design in nylon with leather edging which is lighter again.


The Knomo Curzon leather bag is spaciously stylish, uniquely useful and fabulously fashionable.  It combines organisation with elegance, sophistication with design. It's that perfect bag to take out to meetings or to use for your travels as a cabin bag. It can hold enough for an overnight stay or even a weekend away if you are clever with your packing. Don't believe me? Have a look at the video below and you will be surprised.



I'm seriously impressed with the Knomo range, and I have my eye on the Elektronista digital clutch bag next. A clutch bag with a built in phone charger and lots of pockets for some serious organising. All the bags have a two-year guarantee too. At the moment they have a sale on as well so you may be able to snag a serious bargain!

The Knomo Curzon leather tote bag is priced at £269 and for a bag that will last you many years, I feel it's worth it. If you are looking for a stylish spacious tote bag of the utmost quality, you won't be disappointed. Get your #LifeOrganised with Knomo. Highly recommended.

  16. Ever since I had kids, I cannot leave the house without a big bag that could fit a lot of stuff. There are times where in I'd leave with a back pack. I think this one's awesome, there are so many pockets as well!

    I quite like it. A brown shade would be nice though the natural black leather style is still classy as usual. This could easily spawn a lot of copies, better make sure we get the original one!
