My father had the same Dopp Kit for 30 years.  It was always stationed to left of my parent’s sink and was without a doubt the one item my father used most in his day-to-day life.  Whether he was at home or traveling, the 10” x 5” case was opened and shut every morning and every night.

What I never could understand is why on earth it was called a Dopp Kit…well, mystery solved!  Below we’ve unearthed some facts about the bag’s history:

-  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 WWII when they were issued to GIs.

-  Dopp kits were once a common gift given to adolescent males as they ascended from boyhood to adulthood.

-  In Britain the item is known as a "sponge bag".
