Trimballer

IMG_4413Trimballer (trahm-ball-ay), also spelled trimbaler, means to lug or cart about. Everywhere you go in France, someone is lugging their groceries, school books, or existential dissertation in a Longchamp Le Pliage, the origami inspired folding bag. It comes in a host of colors and sizes, in nylon or leather, and every year there are some special editions to spice things up a bit. If those options aren’t enough for you, you can also customize your own Le Pliage, down to having your name embroidered on the very preppy stripe. That should lighten the weight of any load you need to trimballe about.
