For some time we have desired to be in a family business that amplified the individual skills of each of us and allowed us to supply quality products in a consistent and ethical manner.
We attempt to source all of the components that we use to construct our products locally. The leather we use (and also the canvas) comes from American tanneries and a local canvas supplier.
We have noticed that some products are made to a particular price point or are built for large international companies. There is no issue with this approach, large firms supply a valuable need.
Seemingly lost is the old art of building products designed to last with proper use.
