  Identify Problem One of our core principles is to constantly be in the field identifying real-world creative & productivity issues at home, out in the world & at work. We observe people while they travel, while set up to operate cafe, while they commute deeply investigating why, what, how & where problems are currently occurring.

  Direct Source Based on the product's aesthetic and utility needs we embark on creating exactly what is necessary from the zipper to the button. This typically means we are producing signature materials or buying direct from the source to ensure the highest quality product at the most affordable price.

  Research Post identification we evaluate if and how that problem has already been solved via competitive analysis, hands on testing & data analysis. If the problem has not been adequately solved for modern needs, we move into design.

  Our Leather Our vegetable tanned leather comes from the Tuscany region in Italy. The leather's character comes to life with time during the wash & dry phase, it is then pressed for smoothness, dyed with vegetable tannins to achieve our signature colors, enriched with cow fat for anti-scratching and specifically spray finished to give a soft hand and life-span all dependent on each product's needs.
