Vintage Americana Braided Crossbody #201

MADE IN USA

Our exclusive & best-selling "Stone-Washed" handbag, now made with hand-woven flap details and an optional braided shoulder-strap. 

Our Stone-Washed products are designed & built in our San Diego leather shop, then stone-washed in Los Angeles in a unique process that we developed exclusively in 2017.  The stone-washing and rejuvenating process is done almost entirely by hand over 2-3 days after the products are built.  Each piece is completely unique and takes on it's own character after washing, no two products are alike.

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.
