We often hear that opposites attract, and it’s their differences that allow Mike and Liana to work so well together. Mike handles all of the design-related and production work, and Liana brings a sharp business sense and practicality to their partnership. The duo has an appreciation for handmaking, and the time spent in creating every one of their bags is evident in the finished product. They begin by sourcing the best materials they can find: rich, full-grain leather from US-based tanneries and heavyweight, water-resistant waxed canvas. All parts are individually cut, sewn, assembled and packaged by hand in their backyard workshop, which allows Mike to ensure consistency and clean lines, but also integrates the unique variations and perfectly imperfect details that Liana loves.
