The Story

We love classic, authentic designs from the past. The original US Postal Mail Bags are some of the most interesting for us and widely sought after by collectors worldwide.

The original US Postal Mail Bags were introduced in the late 1800’s and the last ones were made sometime in the late 1960’s. From these designs we now have modern-day “messenger” bags. We wanted to stay true to the original designs but with some logical and practical upgrades. Read more below or visit our website for more details.
