Dopp Kits – Something for your SirPosted: December 9, 2014
A Dopp kit is a small toilet bag, made of leather, vinyl or cloth that is used for storing men’s grooming tools for travel. Common items kept in a Dopp kit are deodorant, a razor, shaving cream, comb, shampoo, nail clippers, scissors, toothbrush, toothpaste and cologne. The name derives from early 20th century leather craftsman Charles Doppelt, a German immigrant to the United States, who invented his toiletry case in 1919.
The kits became widely known during the Second World War when they were issued to GIs. Doppelt’s company was purchased by Samsonite in the early 1970s.
Dopp kits were once a common gift given to adolescent males as they ascended from boyhood to adulthood.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office lists the trademark for “DOPP KIT” as canceled.
In the British Isles the item is known as a “sponge bag”
A functional piece for harboring grooming supplies, toiletries. The Dopp Kit is visioned in an antiqued cowhide leather, that, with time, will collect and carry markings from use to add to its rugged utilitarian look.
