NEW: The Olive Waxed Canvas Collection

May 31, 2017

We're all about Olive right lately. Maybe because we're midway through our Spring production (and Olive waxed canvas is covering most of our workshop!) or maybe because it's the time of year when everything around us is green and growing.

Either way, we're pretty obsessed with our latest colorway, and we're busy field testing our own Olive Roll-Tops and Zip-Top Totes to see how they patina (when we're not making our bags, we're using them on a daily basis to see how the canvas and leather ages and changes over time). 

Below you'll find a peek at some of the bags, wallets and accessories that make up our Olive Collection, paired with some more greenery for good measure. Enjoy!

Where To? The Weekender

December 2, 2016

Our new Where To? video series is a collaboration with Sam Pike, a Denver-based filmmaker and storyteller, former Winter Session wallet-stitcher, and studio mate in our new warehouse space.

Each video offers a snapshot of our bags in action (from their production in our workshop on the north side of Denver to their adventures out in the world) and features different members of the creative community in Denver doing their thing. Our first video follows our new Weekender Bag -- from the sewing table out into the city -- as well as the making of the Waves Japan issue.

ABOUT THE WEEKENDER: The versatile Weekender Bag is designed to carry several days' worth of clothing and accessories while keeping everything organized and accessible. Constructed from start to finish in our workshop from heavyweight waxed canvas and vegetable tanned leather (and reinforced with a full grain leather bottom panel), the Weekender offers a generous carrying capacity while still being compact enough to pass as a carry-on. The Weekender is available in four colorways on our site HERE

ABOUT WAVES: Waves is a Denver-based travel zine created by husband and wife/dynamic duo Jon Hartman and Liz Henderson. Each zine is part travel log, part guide, and a window into the weird, inspiring, and stirring otherworldliness that is our planet. Current issues include Japan and Iceland with Northern Europe and Cuba coming soon. Get more info on the project HERE.

MUSIC: 'Speakeasier' by Mountaineer!

Introducing the Zip Pouch Plaid Series

November 26, 2016

Winter Session Plaid Series Zip Pouch Waxed Canvas Flannel

Last season we made a special edition Log Tote for our friends at Grayers, featuring signature heritage plaid flannels from their collection combined with our perennial staples: canvas and leather. In an effort to minimize waste -- and because their flannels are just too beautiful not to save every scrap! -- this season we've produced a special run of Zip Pouches using dead stock material from their archive and ours. 

For our Limited Edition Plaid Series, we've paired four different dead stock (and super soft!) plaid flannels from our project with Grayers with unused waxed canvas from our archive -- transforming otherwise wasted material into refined utilitarian pieces for everyday organization. Available in two travel-friendly sizes, our Plaid Zip Pouches are perfect for organizing your essentials on the go -- carry them on their own as a small clutch or stash them in a larger bag while traveling. 

Constructed from a combination of 10.10 oz lightweight waxed canvas and brushed cotton flannel, each pouch is detailed with a brass YKK zipper and imprinted leather zipper pull.
