What we stand for is simple: the creation of high quality bags that last a lifetime. That’s why, at the very beginning, we chose the satchel - the iconic, sturdy leather school bag, reinvented and repurposed to accompany everyone everywhere.

A simple goal, but one which requires a considered approach. Leather is our foundation material - why? Because it stands the test of time. A vintage school satchel would resist the pullings, tuggings and scribblings of the school day, and our leather bags are no different; they’re just as durable as the original.

In today’s world of fast fashion and changing trends, we take pride in prioritising the slow and timeless. That’s why all of our bags are available in core colours which will always be unfailingly stylish, allowing you to show off your bags for years to come. Needless to say that our designs, based on the past but built for the present, are timeless too. Take our Doctor’s Bag, which took 6 years to perfect. We’re not afraid to keep working at our designs, because quality takes time - and the result is that they’ll remain remarkable for years to come.

Of course, as a natural material, leather does age (rather beautifully we think, like a fine wine!). It softens over time; that’s normal, and it’s what will make your bag 100% unique to you. However, accidents happen and bags can get damaged. So, at our workshop in Syston, Leicestershire, we are committed to helping you take care of your leather bag, so that it stays with you for a long time. Our artisans love their craft, and are always there to restitch, replace and restore while you relax, knowing it’s in good hands. We can do anything from repairing a lock or replacing a strap to a complete bag overhaul. We’ll even give you a one year warranty on your bag, which will offer you a free of charge repair service for natural breakages and wear and tear.

We’re always looking for ways to be more sustainable, because it’s already at the core of what we do. Our leather bags have always been made from natural hides, which are a product of livestock farming, and which would have otherwise gone to waste. As a natural and durable resource which is free of synthetic materials such as microfibres, our leather does minimal harm to the planet. We always try to reduce waste in any way we can, too. Cutting out our buckles is just the tip of the iceberg - we use every last scrap, from our leather luggage tags to our mini purses.

As a fashion brand, we know that we can always do better. That’s why we have decided to use packaging that minimises waste. Your order will come in an ethically-made cotton dust bag, which will keep your bag safe when not in use, and can otherwise be used for a myriad of things, such as a laundry bag or packed lunch bag. We’d love to know how you choose to repurpose yours!

We’re proud to say that your bag will be your companion for a very, very long time - one that you can carry with you knowing that it was made with care and consideration. A sentimental piece with a story that can be used and passed down over and over again. It doesn’t get better than that!
