  • Behind the Scenes: Our Bags in Production

    February 7th, 2013  —  5 Comments

    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.

    We love this leather’s bold color!  While this is the type of leather we use on our Union Street and Brixton camera bags, this hide is being cut for a new style we’re planning for summer 2013.

    What are some styles you’d like to see us work on?

  • Hi Ona,

    I was wondering how long it would take before a leather Bowery would be available for sale?

  • Hi Amanda, We are creating a sample of the leather Bowery to determine if it will be put into production. If we do release this style, announcements will be made here on our blog and via our e-newsletter, Facebook and Twitter. Thanks for your interest and please stay tuned!

  • I would like to see a new model “Bowery+” that is large enough to fit iPad (even mini will do) _inside_.

  • Thanks for letting us know, Juha. We’ll pass that along to our design team :)

  • [...] Le Brixton est un sac d’épaule de taille moyenne (L34,3 x H26,7 x P12,7cm) en toile enduite et cuir. C’est le petit frère du Union Street, un best seller que Ona a voulu dĂ©cliner dans un format plus rĂ©duit pour permettre de l’emmener partout plus facilement. J’ai chois le modèle Smoke, un gris-bleu discret, mais il existe Ă©galement en beige et noir. Une version tout cuir Cognac est disponible, un peu too much. La toile enduite est un matĂ©riau solide et rustique qui permet de rĂ©sister aux intempĂ©ries. Elle se patine avec le temps (voyez les rayures qui apparaissent dĂ©jĂ  sur le mien) mais il est possible de l’enduire Ă  nouveau pour lui redonner un coup de neuf. Le cuir utilisĂ© est un cuir Ă©pais. Évidemment les sacs ONA sont fabriquĂ©s Ă  la main. [...]
