A sustainable design company rooted in reclaimed leather.
Our goal for this project is to raise funds for the purpose of expanding our leather removal operation. Our supply agreement is in place and we have access to a
massive amount of leather. We just need the resources to go get it all.
As a supporter of our campaign,
you are directly connected to diverting toxins from our landfills. Our leather removal program currently diverts a ton a month - leather and foam. The leather is upcycled into new products, the foam is recycled.
Our company foundation is built on diverting tonnage from our landfills.
The funding we receive from this campaign will go directly to hiring more crew, creating jobs, and increasing the positive impact we can make. When we achieve our funding goal, we'll be able to divert more than 3 tons a month, and that's just the beginning.
We began by choosing to create products that people need and use everyday. The first products we made were iPad/tablet & laptop sleeves. We started with a simple sketch of an envelope style sleeve and cut a pattern to make the first prototype. We carefully selected the leather and hand cut each piece.
The next step was to find a local manufacturer that could make our product come to life as a go to market reality. We were extremely pleased with the results and couldn't be happier to be partnered with a local manufacturer with such a long and established history of quality craftsmanship. After our first prototypes, we expanded to messenger bags & backpacks. The results were equally as beautiful as our first products, and we couldn't be more proud!
Every product is hand made and 1 of a kind with it's own characteristics and history.
The Commute bag is approaching perfection. Its laptop compartment unzips to
lie flat so you don't have to remove your laptop at airport security,
and its waterproof TPU flap keeps your gear dry in a drizzle.
Additionally, it has external water bottle pockets and a silly amount of
internal organization for pens, mice, cords, and our
beloved red key fob.

or files, and its stretchy u-lock pocket and back pods for ventilation
make the Swig a favorite of bike commuters.

Swing Around laptop access, the Knockout is designed to carry and

To build our brand, we are securing manufacturing partnerships with brands that share our core values : sustainable designs, quality craftsmanship, and the made in America commitment.
We are proud and excited to have Timbuk2 as our first manufacturing partner. Having a locally based manufacturer enables us close contact and hands on access. Timbuk2 has sewn made-to-order bags in San Francisco since 1989. Made in San Francisco is the heart and soul of their business and culture.
The result is one-of-a-kind products that are built to last for decades.
Car interior leather comes in a select number of colors and while we do occasionally find rare colors like green and other colors, we are limited to what is most common so we can produce a large amount of products. Some color selections that are limited - white and browns. We will notify all backers as to the color availability limits.
Our team has done it's best to be ready for the production of all the rewards. We will keep in close communication with our manufacturer, and inform all of our backers if any delays arise. We don't expect any delays at this time.
We are set up to expand the project immediately after receiving funding, and expect to hit the ground running with our leather removal crews.
