Our signature hand stitching is informed by our study of shoemaking. It involves hand punching each hole with a very sharp awl, then sewing with two needles at once, joining the pieces together seamlessly. As a result, the insides of our bags show little or no stitching, and feature clean, crisp lines that are just as beautiful as the outsides. We take great joy in creating bags in which every stitch is intentional and every inch is thought out!
We strive to combine traditional craft and modern design to create bags that are timeless, functional, and will last a lifetime.
