Removable Art Panel
This Art bag features a removable 2-ply cotton canvas panel, hand-painted by a Virgil James artist. Each panel is original, one-of-a-kind art. It is attached to a No. 8 bag with the highest quality, polished nickel zippers. Additional panel designs and styles can be purchased separately to create any look you want.
Premium Calfskin Leather
All of our leather bags are made with the finest quality calfskin from, arguably, the best tannery in Italy. Operating continuously for nearly 100 years, this partner is one of the most modern and environmentally safe leather finishers in the world. The leather quality - color, finish consistency, absence of flaws - speaks for itself.
Italian Polished Zippers
We use what most designers consider to be the finest zipper in the world. Manufactured in Italy, they are expensive but worth every Euro. They pull like a knife through butter, with just enough, but never too much, resistance. They won't catch or tear. They simply don't fail. It's not difficult to get excited about these components which exhibit the best in design and industrial technology.
Custom Bronze Hardware
All of the zipper pulls are handmade. Each piece is designed by our artists, cast in ancient bronze using the lost-wax casting process, polished, and then plated for a bright nickel finish. Harder than rock, these pieces will last forever. Their design is intended to reflect each unique Collection.
Lightweight Polished Carabiners
In partnership with the best US manufacturer of technical hardware for climbing, rescue, and commercial use, we designed a high-strength removable carabiner that is used to attach the hand and shoulder straps to our bags. This custom component is a beauty to behold - functional, light, easy to use, and classically stylish. Yes, simple can be better.
We design our products to be used every day. We carefully consider their function and what our customers want and need. We favor clean design that simultaneously meets our performance expectations and showcases a refined classic style. Every detail is considered for its impact on convenience, usability, comfort, security, wear, and style.
