Classic /ˈklasɪk/
adjective: judged over a period of time to be of the highest quality.

There are various attributes that give the "Classic" Backpack the right to its name. Firstly the Materials; because regardless of how good you construct the bag if you start with inferior materials the product will be inferior.

We start with Full-Grain Vegetable Tanned Leather. Full grain is the best leather you can get as it has all of its layers of skin intact, unlike most leather that has a sanded, fake grain surface. The leather is tanned in a chemical free "Tree-Bark Bath" which is the oldest method of curing hides, this is known as Vegetable Tanned Leather. This kind of leather is the highest grade of leather and of the absolute best quality, it absorbs the world's elements over time such as Sun, Rain, Dirt or the natural oils that your body produces which darkens the leather creating a beautiful patina over time.

Next is Consturction, all of the products we make are stitched by hand using the age-old method called "Saddle Stitching". When you use a sewing machine, that line of stitching requires two separate threads that lock around each other in what is known as a "locking stitch". Whereas, a Saddle-Stitched line uses a single thread with needles on either end. If a thread were to snap on a backpack, stitched with a sewing machine, the entire line of thread could unravel allowing the two pieces of leather to separate. However, in a hand-stitched piece, the thread will not unravel and the leather pieces will not separate from each other. While hand-stitching can take twenty times longer, we believe in order for something to be classic it needs to have attention to detail.

Lastly & most importantly the Function and design. We've been testing out Leather Backpack prototypes for the last 5 years and have made them with all the bells and whistles you could dream of. However, these extra features often go untouched in every day carry. Thus, we went through to discard anything that wasn't completley practical. This piece only has the essentials including the main compartment, a back pocket for phone & wallet and the key hook. It is built to last which is why we believe this Classic will be the only backpack you will ever need.
