TANNED IN CHICAGO | BUILT IN SAN DIEGO & STONE-WASHED IN LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA
Inspired by vintage Americana leather-goods & denim jeans from the 70’s-80’s, our Vintage Stone-Washed Collection is like nothing else we have made. Each piece is crafted in our San Diego shop using a vegetable tanned Horween® leather, heavy #277 beige thread, solid-brass (Antiqued) hardware and stone-washed in Los Angeles, California after construction. Vegetable tanned leathers are processed in large wooden drums with natural tree bark tannins, waxes and Horween’s proprietary tanning liquors. Each piece is stone washed, rinsed and heat-dried in Los Angeles, California in small batches, using the same methods and factory that the finest West Coast denim brands use. After washing, the bags are shaped, air-dried, conditioned and oiled to bring back the luster of the leather. The darkened edges and wrinkled flaps are all genuine and unique to each piece. The results are amazingly authentic, with a new bag that appears old, worn and broken-in.
