OUR CRAFT


There’s freedom in every bag.

We believe in the liberty to follow our dreams. To live an effortlessly adventurous life in a thoughtful environment.

That’s why we’re showing up every day to create an All-American company that doesn’t just talk about freedom – it cultivates it.

Leather craftsmen working on cork belt designed by Paula Parisotto.

Thoughtfully Sourced

Sourcing premiere cork fabric was priority one. Our choice had to check all of the boxes……luxuriously soft yet durable and long-lasting. The best in the world!

After 2 toilsome years of research and sampling, California and Portugal collided in a coffee shop in Malibu and, boom, all of Paula’s cork dreams came true.

Our exact source is kept on the down-low {Do you blame us?} but we can tell you that our cork is ethically and sustainably harvested by skilled workers from a small but mighty PETA - Certified vegan Portuguese company. Boxes checked!

Perfectly Refined

Clearly, we believe in Earth friendly partners. That’s why we require a tannery that uses the most natural, eco-friendly processes in the industry. We have that in Wickett & Craig.

Creating US jobs since 1867, this premiere US tannery perfected the labor-intensive craft of vegetable tanning, producing superior leathers of refined quality. In fact, they are only 1 of 2 veg tanneries in the country! Boy, did we get lucky?

 

Quality Handcrafted

Having carefully chosen materials commands quality hand-craftsmanship. We believed that craftsmanship would be found right here in the US. We were correct.

In business since 1985, Waterbury Leatherworks spent the first 6 years crafting for Dooney & Bourke. {Talk about quality!} With a whopping 90+ years of combined experience in crafting quality leather goods, Ernest, Russ and their family of crafters {including two adorable dogs} believe that no detail is too small. And, so do we. We’re big fans of their craft, and know that you will be, too.
