The Leather Bag Factory
Behind The Product
As we looked for a factory to produce our collection, we knew we didn’t just want the best–we wanted to find someone who believed in the product we were making and, maybe more importantly, the mission behind it.
How We Found It
The most guarded factories in the world are leather handbag makers. Lucky for us, our head of product made friends with a consultant to several luxury brands. He was inspired by our story, and introduced us to the owner of this factory.
In this case, the process for sourcing materials was easy. The factory works with the absolute best suppliers of leather. We wanted to find leather that was incredibly soft, yet wore well with time. Once we found the feel, we tested three different thicknesses to find the perfect weight—one that allowed the bag to hold its structure.
About the Owner
The owner of this factory was a skilled technician of leather for years before deciding to start his own business. Today he is a rare example of an artist-turned-head of company. But don’t call him a businessman. He still works with the leather himself, making an effort to speak with the creative team of each company he works with to create beautiful designs.
