Thoughtfully designed; beautifully crafted

Excellent Bags!

I love leather products that are as rough and tough as I am. They need to stand up and look good as they do. These bags fit the bill. Customer service is top notch, and they stand by their product. This is my 3rd bag from them, and will continue to buy from them as needs arise.

Tip top

I was really tired of buying bags that had hardware failures or were unfinished looking on the interior. This looks great and I am sure it will be my last one. Semi- retired and working as a consultant…should make that journey.
Cheers!

CARING FOR YOUR LEATHER BAG

We usually recommend not doing anything to the full-grain leather of your bag, letting it develop it's own beautiful patina over time. However, you may want to freshen it up a bit with a leather conditioner. The leather may darken a bit, so test the reaction first on a spot that's not highly visible, like the bottom of the bag. For the distressed leather that we use, you can also spread the oils around and smooth them out a bit with heat from a hair dryer.
