Ecuadorian Latigo Leather
We’re big fans of promoting quality of life for animals throughout the supply chain so we source our leather from a place where virtually all cattle are free-range, grass-fed, and factory farms are nearly impossible to find.
We worked directly with the tannery to craft the perfect leather for our products. They use a hybrid between top-grain and full-grain processing, removing just enough material to improve the look while retaining durability we can guarantee for life. Then they top that off with a hydrophobic treatment so you don't have to worry about a little rain or the occasional spill.
From there the tannery finishes our leather two ways. The browns are a matte finish, designed to show marks and age very easily, quickly developing a classic aged-leather patina. However, they can easily be cleaned and conditioned to buff out the wear marks. The idea here is that you can dial in how much age/character you want your piece to show based on how often you condition it - just like folks used to shine their shoes (or maybe you still do!).
The black is a pebbled finish, we've found folks who choose black leather often prefer less of a “rustic character" look, so this one won't show wear as quickly as our browns and has a classic, polished appearance.
Tex 70 Nylon Stitching
Nylon thread has an excellent strength-to-size ratio, some stretch and flex capability, and high resistance to abrasion. These qualities make it ideal for leather goods with a lifetime guarantee. The thread can move and stretch with the leather while retaining its durability.
Top Notch Hardware
It's all in the details. Hardware is a common failure point, and failure is not really our thing. So we overbuild the hardware and cut no corners. We also keep our hardware in line with our minimalist geometric design approach.
Bull Denim Lining
No flimsy lining here. Our lining is a heavy yet soft canvas-like bull denim. It comes in three colors, black, black, and black. While lining can sometimes be a decorative touch, we prioritized its ability to do its job for years to come over trendy designs or colors.
There is only one name in the zipper game if you are serious about quality: YKK. And we're proud to use their products in ours.
Comfort Cotton Webbing
We think our webbing will be the most comfortable you've used, especially after it breaks in. Its thickness adds durability and ensures that weight is distributed evenly, the perfect shoulder strap.
In the box
Packaging represents 1/3 of municipal waste. We keep ours simple to save space, but make it by hand so that you know what's inside is loved. Each piece is wrapped in recycled kraft paper packaging and includes a story of leather and care instructions.
The simplest and most powerful guarantee we could create.
- If we made it, it is guaranteed for life. We will repair or replace anything.
- If you buy it, you'll love it. If you don't, we'll work with you until you do, or you can return it for a full refund.
- No questions asked, no paperwork needed.
- If you lose it, or it gets destroyed outside of reasonable use, we'll sell you a replacement at half price.
- Lots of companies use words like "reasonable use" as a loophole. We don't. Wear and tear is part of reasonable use, and it is covered.

Our products are handcrafted, mostly to order. We make our smaller pieces in small batches of 10-20 items at a time. Because of the custom, handcrafted nature of our products, it usually takes us 2-3 business days to prepare your order for shipment.
Estimated shipping times begin when your order is shipped and vary by the carrier and service you choose. First-class and ground services usually take up a to a week to deliver to the United States and international first-class services usually take upwards of 3-4 weeks to deliver once we ship your package.
Please note that all carriers are experiencing delivery delays right now. It's important to us that you get your order as quickly as possible, but unfortunately after we drop off your package for shipping the delivery timeline is out of our hands. USPS and FedEx will be your best bet for tracking down information about your package. If you are having trouble getting answers, or if you just want some peace of mind, feel free to shoot us a message with questions or concerns at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I was skeptical about this bag. I wrote the company with a question and while it took a couple of days, I did get an answer - from a real person!!!
The bag is amazing. It is so well-constructed and fits way more than I thought it would! I’ve been trekking to and from the office with my 17” laptop, mouse, iPad, two notebooks, a pen, plus hand sanitizer, mints, Kleenex and other various items. I clip my water bottle to the carabiner. It’s perfect. I’ve already gotten many compliments.
This satchel is truly as well made and soft as it looks. The construction is outstanding and the leather is soft, yet strong. The shape and design are eye catching and it functions just as advertised. I’m thrilled with the quality for the cost! Bravo Allegory Goods!
I am very happy with the flight satchel. I've not used it much just yet, but the workmanship that went into it was incredible. The customer service has been excellent too. I am looking forward to seeing how it ages over the years.
I gave this bag to a frequently-traveling friend who also has a streamed-line, minimalistic style. She uses it continuously over 4 years and it has worn beautifully. She also loves the flat profile and how it doesn't bulk up her travel style. Sort of wish I had kept it for myself! :)
Love this bag! It's the perfect size for every-day-use. It's been through hell and back, I've used it everyday for over 4 years. Holds my laptop, journal, cords and pens, random stuff and whatever couple books I'm reading. I get tons of compliments on it and I love how the leather is aging. I expect this to be accompanying me wherever I go 20 years from now. Never had a single problem with the zippers, buttons, strap, etc...Ageless class. Personally recommended the bag to several friends over the years. Thank you!
