February: it’s the month of love. Over the next few weeks, we’ll be sharing details on places and things we love, and profiles of photographers and bloggers with passion.
But first up, a brief behind the scenes look inside one of the places we adore most: the factory where each of our camera bags and accessories is handcrafted with care. Our design team spent the week working on new concepts and reviewing production of our current styles, and of course, snapped a few photos along the way.
Before the Chelsea becomes the classic bowler bag we know and love, each piece of rich saffiano leather is carefully cut and organized. There’s been interest in a leather version of our Bowery Camera Bag and Insert: here’s a sample being sewn together.
Some of the signature antique brass hardware we use on our waxed canvas camera bags is gathered in the warehouse before being used for assembly. Some of that brass hardware will end up on bags like The Brixton Camera and Laptop Messenger Bag, shown here in production.
