You deserve to know where your bag comes from. We are committed to transparency in everything we do and are proud of the raw materials we use to create your bag. We are only interested in using the highest quality materials that we deeply believe in.

We don't want you to be careful with our bags. You can toss them around, put them to the test, and still have a beautiful piece. A quality bag can only be as solid as the raw materials it's made of. We take as much time and thought as necessary to research and test the best raw product out there. We select only materials that hold up to the following standards:
Durable & Time-Tested: We want you to use our bags for years. The materials we use only grow more beautiful with time. Our leather develops a gorgeous patina and our canvas takes on beautiful character as it's worn in. We use only extremely solid all-brass hardware.
Weather-proof: Sometimes, it's rainy out there. We create work that is not only beautiful, but that you feel comfortable taking out into the elements. All of our bags do well in the rain--take them outside! Adventure with them!
Oil tanned leather is what we use for most of our bags. This leather is vegetable tanned, then treated with oils to protect it against weather.
Waxed canvas is treated with waxes that make it waterproof.
Beautiful: This is important.
Low Environmental Impact: We start by sourcing our materials from other US-based businesses to minimize the high impact of shipping materials long distances.
