New Zealand bag brand Strandbags have announced a new lifestyle travel line, Nere.

Nere is for the conscious traveller that offers a range of suitcases, travel bags and accessories.

“We saw the opportunity to take our already successful Flylite travel brand and re-imagine it to become a travel lifestyle brand, suitable for today’s modern traveller,” says Feliity McGahan, Group CEO of Strandbags.

McGahan says with borders reopening, the desire to travel has risen but has become “more complex and less affordable” so Nere is a line at an “accessible price point”.

The new range includes four pieces of luggage and other accessories such as tags, packing cubes, totes, backpacks and duffels.
