We're a leather company. And to be honest, we've been a little quiet in the last year or so. The reason we've been laying low is that we've been singularly focused on completely retooling and raising the bar on our leather. The leather that we'll be delivering to you in this campaign is the result of a 12 month re-sourcing process, and we couldn't be more excited about this development.
For this campaign, we're unveiling our new Tuscan leather. Our new leather partner is a 3rd generation, family vegetable tannery in Ponte a Egola, Italy. They are one of the founding members of The Genuine Italian Vegetable Tanned Leather Consortium, a group of Tuscan vegetable tanneries who follow strict regulations and have extremely high standards. Each Port Series item will be Certified by the Consortium and be labeled with their quality / trademark seal.
The highlights of our new Tuscan leather:
- Hide Origin: French Cowhide Shoulders
- Full Grain / Vegetable Tanned
- Stuffed with fats and oils for a soft hand and strong pull-up effect
- Aniline died for full transparency of the hide's natural properties
For this collection, we also raised the bar on our zippers. We're now using Japanese YKK Excella zippers. These are the smoothest and highest quality zippers available in the market.
Unlike other companies who cheap out on the interior materials by using cheap canvas, nylon, or wool, we went all in on this collection. The interior features a smooth vegetable-tanned calf leather in British tan, with a supple, tumbled full-grain leather trim.
Our D Rings and Dog clips are made from solid brass and then antiqued. Our rivets are solid copper. Again, we are using the most durable materials possible.
For durability, we are using a waxed polyester 277 thread. Most leather goods are made with Nylon thread, but polyester has superior UV and mildew resistance, so that's why we're using it.
The inspiration behind this project was frankly, the fact that the Portfolio design of most other leather companies hasn't changed since around 1987, When it came to designing a slim Portfolio to carry our daily tech and essentials, we knew we could do much better.
Satchel & Page was born and raised on Kickstarter. In 2013, we launched our first bag collection. In 2014, leather jackets, and in 2015 the Forever Belt and the Vintage Suitcase, Briefcase, and Portfolio Reinvented. We pride ourselves on our Kickstarter execution, and delivering on what we promise. We have thousands of happy customers all over the world.
We offer a lifetime warranty on our leather goods that covers material or manufacturing defects.The warranty does not cover natural aging of the leather or misuse or mistreatment. In the event of a problem with the bag, we will either: repair it and ship it back to you, replace it, or reimburse you for repair costs incurred in your local area. If a repair or replacement is not possible, we will issue a store credit equivalent to the purchase price of the bag.
Refunds & Exchanges
As we our offering our Kickstarter backers a heavy discount, there are no refunds on this project. If you are not comfortable with this, we suggest you order the Port Series when its available on our website. The price will be higher, but we will offer our regular 30 day return policy.
We will offer backers exchanges for a different sized Port if needed. Backers will be responsible for all shipping costs involved for an exchange.
This project is promoted by Jellop, a direct response online advertising agency specializing in Kickstarter campaigns on Facebook Ads and Google AdWords.
Risks and challenges
The main risk in this project is delays from our leather or hardware suppliers. However, both suppliers have been highly vetted and we have gone already gone through multiple production runs with each of them.
We can draw on our experience of 4 past, successful Kickstarter projects. When you back our project, we take that support as a responsibility to delivery what we promise (or better). As we have done in the past, we promise to keep you informed and share in the process with full transparency.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
