Five great companies making solid leather bags, and products.
Bucheimer was born in 1884, as the American manufacturer of original designs in leather goods. Bucheimer’s legacy includes: the first ever chain wallet, also known as the trucker’s wallet. Beginning in the 1960’s, Bucheimer was awarded the contract to produce the U.S. Post Office mail bag, the NYPD holster, and the NYPD saddle. With this legacy in mind, we carry Bucheimer forward continuing a tradition of quality and craftsmanship that has been a benchmark of this brand for over a century. Just as Bucheimer began in 1884, we are still manufacturing in the USA. We still use luxury, durable leathers to achieve a finish and patina only found in the best leather goods in the world.
At Cravar, we aim to create quality, well designed, and lasting leather goods. It all started when Yoki P. Baskara went on a backpacking trip to Italy and saw an old shop selling wonderful leather goods. That sparked his interest in leather and he started designing & making leather photo albums for Hypnosis, his photography business. He kept on designing and making prototypes of what would eventually become Cravar’s collection.
The Story of Harmattan Leather … We started out as an idea and a question, discussed between design professionals: Could we produce a bag out of the best leather, with no compromises and still have a decent retail price? Harmattan offers 4 of the initial 14 designs and maintains it’s much-appreciated quality standard and affordability. We use the same full grain, 5-9 Oz. ( 2-3 mm ) bovine leather, the thickest and most expensive leather available combined with perfect craftsmanship. We make sure your bag last a lifetime and that you can actually afford it.
The inspiration behind the Satchel & Page leather collection came from Daniel’s grandfather and his map case from WWII. The bag holds stories of courage, resiliency, and love. The leather has aged with character and the bag is still going strong…about 70 years later…Which got Daniel thinking, “Why can’t I find products like this now?” So we’re creating the highest quality leather bags possible. A bag that you will be proud to pass on to future generations. Our designs are inspired by the great generation of the 1940s : Map case, Mailbag, Briefcase, Gladstone, Pilot’s Bag. We have maintained the original styling of the era, but have added functionality for today’s technology.
There is a belt that my father has had for the past twenty years. Over those twenty years it has aged with him. It has been scuffed, nicked and developed a dark patina as a visual testament to the work that it’s been through. That belt has always been an example to me of what it means to make something of quality. Something strong. Something reliable.
Kingsman Leatherware……About a year ago, after visiting my parents and seeing my father’s belt again, I realized that it was about time that I found myself one of the same quality. Never being one to shy away from a challenge, I decided that I would make my own. After making that belt, I realized I wanted (and needed) a new bag for my laptop and a duffel I could use for whenever and wherever I travel. And with that, Kingsman Leatherware was born.
