In the spring of 2011 we packed up our San Francisco apartment and prepared ourselves for a year long journey around the world. The next twelve months would take us to the top of Africa in Tanzania, to the bottom of the Americas in Patagonia, to the cities of eastern and western Europe, and upon the rivers of Asia in Laos, Cambodia and Vietnam. It was in these locations we sought out bags and accessories that would exude the old world luxury of Europe, and withstand the demanding elements of travel. Now back home in Los Angeles we are proud to have built august, a locally sourced/manufactured leather goods company. Here at august, we hope to encourage the local economy by bringing back art.
