Here it is. The elusive, nearly extinct, Classic messenger bag. We know the story. You've been looking for a bag just like this for years. Simple. Stylish. Classic. Cool. And to top it off, it's hand sewn at an affordable price. Your search is over. Our advice? Be prepared for strangers stopping you on the street to see your bag. It's that cool.
Craftsmanship of this degree is a dying art, and we are fortunate to have a partner and friend who has a small cadre of craftsmen that have been working for his family business for decades making some of the worlds finest hand stitched horse saddles and tack. We are working in partnership, taking those skills in a new direction, to create satchels of exceptional quality and affordability, to a generation accustomed to mass produced nylon cookie cutter crap, but yearn for reality. An actual individual sat down, cut the pattern out of a hide, and hand stitched this satchel for you. For those who appreciate Old World master work, I do believe they'll find no finer satchel.
The leather is created by a small tannery for us, using traditional tannic bark vegetable tanning, this heavy duty, high quality satchel is made entirely of sturdy water buffalo hide. Thick and durable, the leather averages 3mm thick and has been specifically tanned to achieve a distressed finish that shows wear and mileage phenomenally. It will soon look like it's been at your side forever. And it most likely will. Heavy duty brass hardware complements the leather, and stout nylon threads keep it together. The interior is natural suede from the hide, and a small cell phone sized pocket and pen loops keep go-to items handy. It's an instant heirloom.
