British Messenger Bag
A Historic Bag With A Modern Design
Designed in London, this bag proves that messenger bags are truly a British artform.
Hand-sewn from full-grain, vegetable-tanned leather and antique brass hardware, this bag is an instant heirloom — gorgeous, made to form a deep patina, last a lifetime and look better with age.
Outside, the bag resembles the 1940's British military bags. Inside, it is a modern workday bag — with space to fit a 15" laptop, a few folders, a tablet, a wallet, keys, notepads, credit cards, business card, and a passport.
All of this fits in a slim profile and costs a third of the competition.
1940's British Design
The design for this bag based closely on the 1940s British Military Bread Bags used by the British troops in the Big War and even by Lawrence of Arabia. We even chose a color, shape, and style that stayed true to that iconic accessory.

Gets better with age
As with all full grain leather, the bag develops a beautiful patina over time while still allowing the natural grain to show through. All the while, each wrinkle, crease, and mark adds to its complexity. They blend into the leather, creating a mosaic that is entirely unique to you.
With time, your bag won't just hold your things, it will reflect your history — eventually aging into heirloom status.
Full Grain Leather
The best leather craftsmen in the world haven't been making it for years, but instead, for generations. This bag is made of full grain leather from Europe's top-rated tanneries. We exclusively source full grain leather — because it's the gold standard. It utilizes the entire hide and shows the natural grain, creating a classic look that can't be replicated with cheaper materials.
Antique Brass Hardware
Each bag comes equipped with antique brass hardware — not just because it’s beautiful. It’s also insanely strong and durable. Use your bag every day, everywhere; all without fear of damage.
