Whether it's for yourself or a gift for family, a friend or a loved one, you can't go wrong with the beautifully hand-crafted messenger bag. The messenger bag originates from New York city during the mid-1900's, and legend has it that the bag was born as an aid for telephone linemen, who would store their tools, materials and even their lunch in the bag while they hung above the streets maintaining the telephone poles. Not long after, the 70's saw the shift of the bag's profession from telephone maintenance to bicycle messengers due to its practical design and the surging number of motor vehicles on the streets of New York. As the messenger profession grew, so did the image of the messenger bag. By the end of the century, the messenger bag had become a fashion accessory, and its carry-all, rugged, working-class image has taken the mainstream stage by storm. The flesh side of the soft leather is first stained with natural drab tone and finished with our proprietary beeswax conditioner. Our unique treatment not only helps the leather to retain its shape without the aid synthetic stabilizers, it also eliminates the need for a lining (often the first to tear) offering a natural and durable look. The leather we use, originating from our well-established supplier Compiel, is nothing but Full Grain Leather, and if you don't know what that is, then make sure you're sitting comfortably. There are 4 types of leather, and they differ in quality. You have Full Grain Leather, Top Grain Leather, Genuine Leather and Bonded Leather.
