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.
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.
