Our Designs

It all starts with an idea! Once we have researched, questioned, studied and critiqued, Steve hand sketches a design. He then makes the pattern out of his trusted poster board, traces the pattern on leather and then hand cuts each piece. We both work on the construction of the first sample, from gluing edges to punching stitching holes, hot stamping the logo and hand stitching and hand hammering rivets, studs and snaps. Sometimes the design requires multiple samples … to the chagrin to my tiny fingers. After we have agreed on the sample it’s ready for production.

Our Leather

We use US steer veggie tanned bridle leather that is made using old world craftsmanship with the highest quality oils and tallows. This leather will age beautifully and most importantly maintain its strength and temper for years to come. This environmentally safe tanning process can require up to two months to accomplish, making it one of the most expensive cattle hide leathers.

Note the scratches and other marks on our leather goods are natural characteristics of full grain leather. These irregularities and variations add to the uniqueness of each bag. Every leather piece is unique because every hide is unique.

Our Wax Canvas

We use #10 Martexin Waxed Duck which starts at 14.7 oz per square yard before finishing, ~19.84 oz per square yard after applying the wax finishing.  Manufactured in New Jersey for 80 years or more. It’s been used in the making of tents, jackets, and all kinds of military gear.  Martexin Original Wax uses an exclusive Martexin® finish, which makes it technically superior to other waxed cotton fabrics in performance, longevity, and dryness of hand.

Martexin Original Wax is an environmentally friendly blend of food and pharmaceutical grade waxes, and is completely non-hazardous.  This unique formula gives the fabric lifelong resistance to inclement weather and as the fabric ages, it develops a well-worn and comfortable patina.  The patina develops with more and more use, in the same manner that leather ages and burnishes with time. 

Our Nylon

We use 1000 Denier CORDURA® Nylon Fabric is a versatile nylon fabric and the industry-leading choice for a variety of heavy-duty applications such as outdoor gear, luggage, military gear, upholstery, and sport/duffel bags. CORDURA® Nylon is a textured nylon for a natural spun-like appearance, with excellent resistance to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew. Quick drying, and highly water repellent and 100% Made in the USA.


They may not seem like much, but every piece of hardware on our products are made in the USA. Each hand hammered rivet is solid copper and our studs, buckles and rings are solid antique brass.
