Lifestyle brand Lexdray is proud to announce that it has become the Official Luggage Provider of the Major League Baseball Players Association (MLBPA), effective for the 2015 and 2016 seasons.
The partnership will officially launch at the upcoming MLB All-Star Game on July 14, in Cincinnati, OH, where All Stars and key personnel will receive custom Lexdray Beijing Duffel bags—an essential piece for a Major Leaguer’s jet-setting lifestyle.
The sleek and ultra-durable Beijing Duffel is a perfectly sized carry-on designed for the frequent traveler, featuring dual compartments for easy organization, various exterior pockets to quickly reach daily essentials, and a versatile padded shoulder strap system.

We recently launched two versions of our reversible tote bag. In conjunction with the launch, we offered our retail partners the ability to create an understated screen print in black ink on the black ballistic nylon side of the Capetown and Playboy totes. This unique customization process has been extremely well received by retailers and customers alike. Below are a few images of our retail partners screen-printed bags (ACD Gallery (San Diego), Canvas (Malibu), Capsule (Toronto), DEMK (Hong Kong), Marissa Collections (Naples), theWit Hotel (Chicago)).

Yours to Use Tote
We are excited to announce a special new project we launched today with the Pali Hotel Group. Our limited-edition Cape Town Reversible Tote is now available for guests of the sophisticated and chic Paligroup Hotels & Houses to use during their stay at the neighborhood-focused Los Angeles properties. Perfect for a day at the beach, shopping, or just walking around town, the tote is a sleek black ballistic nylon on one side and reverses to our new black and white striped twill. Guests who want to commemorate their trip with a unique souvenir—or who simply run out of room in their luggage—can take the tote home for $150 (plus applicable taxes).
