About this project
Brace makes your life easier. Our beautifully designed leather accessories are the essentials you need for life’s everyday adventures.
The idea for Brace came from our desire for a cohesive line of quality leather goods that would simplify working or studying on the go. We wanted these goods to be well designed, well-made and with long-lasting, quality materials that look good too. Enter Collection 001: Man Overboard, Essential Leather Accessories designed for life on the go and delivered in One Simple Kit. All leather pieces are made by hand in our Montreal atelier.
We only work with full grain leather which is the highest quality leather available on the market. Full-grain leather refers to hides that have not been sanded, buffed, or snuffed to remove imperfections or natural marks on the surface of the hide. This means each of our pieces will be naturally unique. Rather than wearing out, it will develop a patina over time. Our leather will wear beautifully and it will actually look better as it ages!
We are very excited to introduce to you the Man Overboard kit: the essentials for life on the go. Our goal was simple: to use the inherent beauty of leather to create a beautiful set that will be functional, simple and last a lifetime. We are making the whole kit available on Kickstarter for purchase, along with each piece sold separately. We are funding the production of our Man Overboard Kit and offering it as a pre-sale reward for $130 less than the retail price of the Kit once it is available on braceleather.com.
To pre-order Brace, click the button below and pick a reward or select one at the top right on the page. Easy!. If you want a custom selection of items, then follow the instructions in our Kit Builder (bit.ly/buildmykit).
Once you have pledged, sit back and relax. We'll collect your shipping/fulfillment info when this project is complete, in early November!
Once you pledge, you're in for a great time. Throughout our campaign we'll be updating backers with footage of our project and having live Q&A hangouts with the Brace Team.
Want to add additional items to your reward like another Key Chain or Tool Roll? Perhaps you want to add on a couple snaps to your laptop bag, so you can manage your cables at the same time. Either way, adding stuff to your reward is easy:
1. Build your own Kit!!
If (and only if) you want a custom number of items, check out our Kit Builder Build to make a custom selection of products. It’s a great way to put together your own everyday life ‘survival’ kit and make sure you have everything you want.
2. Relax, your work is done!.
All details like shipping information, size and colour preferences (once our stretch reward level is unlocked) and other details, will be collected via survey after this campaign has ended in early November.

Risks and challenges
We've spent most of the year working with our partners to anticipate and minimize as many risks as possible, yet we know that with any project of this scale there will be unforeseen challenges along the way. We will always be honest and transparent with you, our community, throughout the entire process.
Ship date: We have built in extra time for the manufacturing process and are confident we will ship by the projected dates, but there is always a chance that things will take longer than planned.
Supplier coordination: We work with a variety of suppliers to source the best materials and ensure the product is developed correctly. Each supplier has its own challenges, which may affect its partners, including us.
Thanks again for all the love and support!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
