WHAT CAUSES THE PRICE GAP IN LEATHER PRODUCTS?

OUR PRICES EXPLAINED

You’ve probably noticed that leather bags have quite a diverse range in price, we’ve been told that our bags are inexpensive from some, and expensive from others. Whichever side of the coin you are on, we are going to explain why our prices are what they are. 

HOW OUR STORY BECAME YOUR STORY.

HOW OUR STORY BECAME YOUR STORY.

It’s the moment in a man’s life when “I need a new bag” suddenly becomes a balancing act between style, quality and price. The search for a high-quality leather bag used to be challenging, expensive, and tended to be more about luck than anything else. Until today…

Unsere Story begann im Ausland. Auf Arbeitsreisen lernten wir, dass hochwertige Ledertaschen längst nicht mehr „Made in Italy“ sein müssen. Begegnungen mit beeindruckender, tief in Kultur verankerten Handwerkskünsten und einzigartigen Rohstoffen, brachten die Frage auf:

LEATHER SELECTION

When we get down to it, the biggest factor that comes into play when pricing a bag is the quality of the leather. Our bags are crafted with full-grain cow hide leather, which means that the hide is in its thickest form, which is the highest quality and highest durability. Most leathers that are in the cheaper price ranges are crafted from split grain leather, which means the hide was split into two pieces making two separate hides. They can then make double the amount of products, but the products will have less durability or will be coated with polyurethane or other plastic based coatings, taking away the natural aesthetics of leather which our bags encompass.

Our story began abroad in Pakistan, where we en-countered many impressive craftsmen and a vast selection of raw materials. Experiencing such a deeply-rooted celebration of the traditional craft within this culture, raised this question:


WHY DON’T WE PRODUCE HIGH-QUALITY LEATHER BAGS ON OUR OWN AND OFFER THEM FOR A FAIR PRICE?

WHY DON’T WE PRODUCE HIGH-QUALITY LEATHER BAGS ON OUR OWN AND OFFER THEM FOR A FAIR PRICE?  

In addition to keeping the leather in its full form, we also are highly selective about what hides we select. All of our leather is from food industry wastage. Along with advantage of saving this material from merely being discarded, the byproduct serves as a source for high quality hides. The cows of the food industry typically are healthier and have less irregularities than a hide you get from other suppliers, because of this they cost more but it’s worth it because the quality is consistently better. 

Well, we quit our day jobs and six months later we held our first small collection of just five products in our hands. In the same year, big life-style magazines like Forbes and GQ became interested in our unique bags and the way we do business.

CUTTING THE MIDDLE MAN

We chose initially to invest in our own production facilities so we could take a more direct to consumer approach in our logistics. We don’t deal with a middle man, it’s just us and our producers. We are actually on such close terms with our producers, we’ve been invited to not only their weddings, but also their families weddings. So what happens with the margin that the manufacturing agent (middle man) would normally take? We pass it on to you, along with donating part of our revenue to a school in Pakistan where we are funding education to children that wouldn’t otherwise have access. 

Fair Price

By cutting out the middle man, we are able to offer high-quality products for a fair price. These savings are direcltly transfered to our customers, while at the same time, we are able to donate 3% of our revenues through our “One Bag- One Child”Project. This project covers 100% cost of schooling, from the teachers salaries to the students' tuitions.

FIRST-CLass Quality

Our quality is all about carefully selected raw materials and skilled craftsmanship. Looking closely at our leather bags, you will discover our “Crazy-Horse” Finish. A particularly gentle way of treating the leather that allows it to keep its natural structure and develop a unique patina, reflecting the habits of its owner.

INDIVIDUAL DESIGN

Seeing that the market was lacking the courage to be more diverse and colourful, we decided to offer a variation of inside linings that fit every owners’ individual preferences. When have you every seen someone opening a bag and you suddenly entered a tropical holiday dream?

All in all, the leather industry is a multifaceted system, from the highest quality to the lowest, and everything in between the possibilities are endless. We have taken the path we found the be the best balance between mindful production, high quality, that allowed affordable prices.
