AE LUX, The Waxed Cotton Collection
Waxed cotton is a waterproof fabric that speaks of natural heritage and longevity. This new collection centres around the championing of this quality fabric, showcasing it’s beautiful and organic patina. As is our way, the detail in each bag has been pared back to the minimum, providing only the essential function and allowing the quality of the materials to speak. There is a richness in the feel of the waxed cotton, and its contrast to the tough Cordura base. The combination of these fabrics, along with heavy duty cotton webbing and brass fittings mean this collection adds a special depth of quality to The Atlantic Equipment Project range. With each bag built by hand in our workshop, craftsmanship is a pillar of AE’s work. The palette is driven by the natural hues of Autumn that wax cotton has been produced in for centuries. Each additional fabric and element has been chosen to contrast and compliment the colours of the waxed cotton.
The AE Lux Collection is made up of three colour combinations:
Caramel/Burgundy · Dark Olive/Black · Navy/Forest Green
The AE Weekend
Perfect for a city break getaway and as stylish carry-on luggage, the AE Weekend has a classic aesthetic, with craftsmanship and quality fabrics at its core. The waxed cotton and the Cordura base provide waterproof protection, and ease of carry with two heavy duty cotton handles.

The cotton handles are passed through brass eyelets, and our signature leather tab offers the final detail. With an overall height of30cm, width of 50cm and depth of 24cm, the AE Weekend is a travel must-have.
