Lingeer: A Name That Echoes the Rich Wolof Legacy

At the heart of Tobbs’ collection is the Lingeer Large Satchel, a symbol of elegance and authority. The name ‘Lingeer’ is steeped in the history of the Wolof people, a major ethnic group in Senegal, Gambia, and Mauritania. In the Wolof language, ‘Lingeer’ translates to ‘queen,’ reflecting a deep respect for feminine power and grace in Wolof culture.

The Wolof People: Custodians of a Rich African Culture

The Wolof people are known for their rich cultural heritage, which includes vibrant music, dance, and a strong oral storytelling tradition. Their language, Wolof, is one of the most widely spoken languages in Senegal and plays a crucial role in the cultural identity of the region. By naming the satchel Lingeer, Tobbs celebrates not just a word, but a whole culture and its history.

Design That Marries Wolof Aesthetics with Modern Functionality

The Lingeer seamlessly blends Wolof-inspired design elements with the practical needs of the modern woman. Fashionable and versatile, it is suitable for a variety of occasions, from professional settings to casual outings.

Spacious and Elegant: Embodying the Spirit of a Queen

Reflecting the strength and versatility of a queen, the Lingeer Satchel is spacious yet elegant. It features a main compartment with pockets efficiently designed for essentials, including a 14-inch laptop, embodying the practical needs of today’s dynamic women.

A Craftsmanship That Honors Traditional Artistry

Each Lingeer satchel is a nod to the skilled craftsmanship that is deeply rooted in African traditions. The hand-crafted finish of the bag adds a unique touch of luxury, making each piece an individual work of art.

Versatile in Carry, Royal in Appearance

Designed with both style and comfort in mind, the Lingeer comes with dual top handles and removable adjustable stripes. This thoughtful design allows for various carrying styles, catering to the diverse needs of its carriers.

More Than a Bag: A Symbol of Wolof Heritage and Modern Elegance
