I'm a girl who loves a piece with a story. A leather bag that lives a long time and travels from owner to owner is full of stories. Leather is made to live many lives and to cycle through many owners. I love knowing that I'm just a small piece of the story behind each of the bags that are created.

What we love about the work we do and the products that go into our customer’s hands is that we know the materials so well, and we know exactly what it'll look like in 5, 10, even 20 years time.

Our pieces are durable enough to take anything you got and go with you wherever you go.
