Family-owned & operated, every item is produced in our atelier in the Rocky Mountains. Materials matter so we use non-caustic domestic leather and recycled materials. To minimize waste, we make our goods to order. 

 
This story began in 2012 with a dream to bring manufacturing back to America. After working in outerwear at Eddie Bauer, Dane decided to leave the corporate fashion world & start a manufacturing brand. He bought his first machine from the man that invented the inkjet printer & used it to repair his sails. It is the same Pfaff each bag is made on today. Born in a basement, Dane made a leather version of a paper bag he had sketched in his notebook years before. It immediately sold to a boutique in Brooklyn. Then, he created leather pan handles for every cast iron pan in our personal collection. He sold these products at the local farmer's market for many years. When he was then given a pile of sails, he developed a new line of recycled bags that would become the Oceans Collection. His pieces were featured in Sunset Magazine, Hunt Magazine, Alaska Airlines & USA Today
 
Things were growing the old-fashioned way until an injury paused all plans in 2018. After an unexpected hiatus & very quiet life for a number of years, we have managed to resume where we left off from a new studio in the Rocky Mountains.  
 
Hearing the stories of our customers using these products every day have inspired us to fight to get back in the saddle. To keep on keeping on manufacturing products in America that will stand you in good stead wherever life leads you
