Legacy outdoor gear company draws inspiration from Biltmore ® for their Renaissance Collection

Asheville, NC – January 23, 2018 – Built on a foundation of American outdoor heritage, Diamond Brand Gear’s Biltmore® Renaissance Collection offers high-quality bags to the sophisticated explorer featuring mobility, versatility, security, comfort and elegance. Joining the history of Biltmore®, whose founder George Vanderbilt helped established America’s first school of forestry in the 1890’s, and Diamond Brand Gear, which touts over 116 years in domestic outdoor gear manufacturing, the Renaissance Collection is rooted in Carolina tradition.

Inspired by Biltmore’s early 20th century trunks and travel bags, the modern collection features cotton canvas and wool blend fabrics with leather strap handles and brushed nickel hardware. The classic Biltmore Renaissance Overnight ($299) secures an explorer’s gear through winding country roads and bustling mountain towns. High-end durable fabrics with smart design make this overnight bag the perfect travel companion. Combining style with functionality the Biltmore Renaissance Explorer ($269) features an innovative and versatile upright design able to store essentials including laptops, clothing and footwear. Accented by sophisticated bridle leather and stitching, this bag performs in town and on the trail. Highlighting Diamond Brand Gear’s ingenuity and craftsmanship, the convertible Biltmore Renaissance Tote ($179) is adaptable and secure, featuring a hidden front zippered pocket ensuring easy and safe storage, and straps that convert the tote to a backpack for spontaneous adventures.
