why this product

The ultimate in easy elegance, our exclusive carryall honors the simple bucket shape in buttery leather. The large interior pocket was strategically placed just so for organizing your smaller items while keeping them easily accessible.  The gummed and burnished shoulder strap is threaded through solid brass grommets and tied with Matthew Walker knots (a decorative knot that is also highly functional in keeping ends from fraying and preventing unraveling). The tote's sturdy bucket shape provides protection against rough or damp surfaces, with just enough structure to stay upright when set down. The origin of the bucket bag dates back to 1932, when it was specially crafted to hold five champagne bottles (now that's a fête!). Over the years, the design has become an essential accessory for everyday carry.

use & care

Over time, the leather will darken and earn a natural patina with exposure to sunlight and general use. If desired, care for the leather bottom and trims by conditioning periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax as well as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent cracking.

production & design

An intrepid traveler, Andrew McAteer found that the available bags, carriers and accessories on the market didn't properly suit his on-the-go gear requirements, and so he began to design and make his own goods. Working out of a small workshop in Astoria, New York, Andrew creates beautiful, timeless products to go with everyday life.
