The Messenger Bag was inspired by vintage leather army bags from the 1940's. Handcrafted in the USA of full grain vegetable tanned leather, this bag will age beautifully. It's built like a tank without being too heavy. The Messenger is designed to be carried on the shoulder or cross-body, but it also includes a grab handle on the back for quick grabs.

Not only are our products handcrafted right here in the USA, but we use strong North American steer hides.

Because we use only the highest quality full grain vegetable tanned leather, our leather is rich in character and the surface is natural, not sanded or altered. This means you may see naturally occurring small scars, creases, and striations. These minor markings are not flaws, they are features and a hallmark of quality leather.

The leather also has natural color variation. No two hides are identical. So you may notice some color variation even among products that are the same color. The leather may look slightly different in different light, etc. This is part of the natural variation of the hide. But we can assure you, the leather looks even richer and more beautiful in person!

Saddle Tan is a medium/dark tan color that is absolutely eye-catching in person. It shows a natural marbling and depth of character that is quite unique.

Vintage Brown is a rich dark brown color. It also demonstrates some marbling and depth of character you won't find in most dark browns. It looks like an old-school vintage leather, which accounts for the name.

Black is a solid black color on both sides of the leather.

Our leather will become even more beautiful as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable and can take most anything life throws at it, but proper care and maintenance is recommended. We offer a specially formulated, all-natural leather cream that works wonderfully with our leather.

What Makes a Quality Leather Bag?


We use 100% vegetable tanned full grain leather made from strong American steer hides - the best you can get. Less than 10% of leather is made this way. Watch a video

We use solid brass, antique finish, hardware. An old-school rarity. Most bag makers use cheap metals or even plastic hardware.

We use heavy gauge, industrial strength, bonded thread to make our leather goods. It may be overkill, but that's what we do.

Real Luxury. Realistic Prices.


Making the best possible leather products is only an achievement if they’re attainable for most people. And that’s what we’ve done with our unique business model.

This level of quality materials would cost at least twice as much at other retailers. By streamlining the process and selling directly to you online, we’re making luxury-level leather goods attainable.

Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
