About this project
I’ve been in the fashion industry, making men’s sportswear for my line, READ WALL, since 2010. During this time, I’ve worked with some of the best apparel and accessories factories in America. Now, I’m applying my love for exceptional, American-Made products to TERRIER.
What makes these bags so special?
Durable Materials - We’ve used a combination of waxed canvas, vegetable tanned leather, and some seriously heavy-duty hardware to create a bag that is virtually indestructible. Our waxed canvas is an authentic American product: it has outfitted some of America’s most badass workers, farmers, explorers, fighters, and outdoorsmen for generations.
Sold Direct – No Middleman - You’ve heard the story before: retailers generally mark products up about 2-3 times from wholesale (for a grand total of around 5-8 times cost—ouch!). These bags would normally retail anywhere from $600-$800 – but since we’re selling them direct, you can pick up our signature duffel for under $300. Boom.
Guaranteed for Life - We want you to beat the hell out of your bag. The leather will naturally darken with time and the bag itself will develop a great patina: Terrier bags were designed to get better with age. And if for some reason your bag rips, tears, or otherwise lets you down, we’ll fix it for free.
What you might not know:
Not all sewn products made in the USA are created equal. Most factories split their time between different cut-and-sew projects—they could make pants one week, and mattress pads the next. Not us.
The best factories in America focus on one product and develop a skill that is unmatched by others.
The Terrier factory has been making bags for some of the worlds’ finest luxury brands for over 30 years. As many of these brands have turned to overseas manufacturing, our factory has seen a dramatic reduction in production orders—which means fewer American jobs. We want to reverse this trend. The more bags we sell, the more skilled Americans we put back to work. We need your help to get our factory started. Back our project and let us show you the best America has to offer.
OK, I’m in. Let’s see the bags:
