Our full grain 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.

Like a fine wine, our leather gets even better as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable 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 full grain leather made from strong North American steer hides - the best you can get. Learn how our products are made.

We use solid brass hardware with antique finish. A premium old-school rarity not used by most bag makers.

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

Story Behind the Founder's Backpack

Interestingly, the word "founder" can mean a person who starts a company, or someone who fails miserably.

As Thomas Edison put it: "I have not failed. I've just found 10,000 ways that won't work."

It's that spirit of perseverance and discovery that inspired this backpack. Life is an adventure, you need a good companion.
