We are so excited to provide you with a high quality artisan made product. We believe in American made and supporting businesses that share that same vision. Our leather is purchased from Horween leather company in Chicago which has been run by the same family for three generations.They hand dye the hides and produce high quality leather that improves with age and use.The fabric for our heirloom line is easily one of the most unique aspects of our bags. They are reproductions of 18th and 19th century textile patterns and are woven on antique looms. The texture of the fabric is so unique, it is hard to believe it is cotton! Our hardware and rivets are solid brass.The bags are carefully designed and constructed with style, functionality and durability in mind. We are 5 sisters honored to run a business together. Our goal is to provide the highest quality products with exceptional customer service.
