why this product

The sturdy Japanese selvage denim and American leather of this exclusive denim bag is handmade and beautifully structured for long-lasting use. Large interior pocket is strategically designed to keep your smaller items organized and easily accessible. The leather straps are polished and secured with double hand-set solid brass rivets for durability and strength — perfect for carrying around books or heavier groceries from the market. Casual denim meets tough leather, as it's well-crafted bottom keeps the bag protected against damp or rough surfaces. 

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 that he needs, and by extension, that others might also find useful.
