We uphold a tradition in reliable and attractive goods to last a lifetime. Each bag and each piece is hand cut, designed and crafted in the Brooklyn Navy Yard.
Using custom built tools and machines, hand tooled brass hardware, and the highest quality Italian and U.S Horween leather.
We use traditional techniques handed down by legendary leather smith Barbara Shaum.
Each piece will be unique and slightly different in texture & feel because we work with a natural product. Trying to use as much of the hide as possible,
we feel small natural markings enhance the beauty of the product.
Our leather goods are made to last a lifetime.
Most of our bags are made out of vegetable tanned Italian leather we import ourselves. We searched for a long time to get the perfect thickness and sturdiness of the leather,
to make sure the bags keep their shape and luxurious, high quality feeling for years to come.
Same is true for the hardware. It took quite some time before we found the family owned foundry in England where our solid brass hardware is hand tooled in small quantities.
We advise that you be gentle when breaking in your belt, bag, sandals or small goods.
