Bleu de Chauffe and Le Baigneur November 22 2014

Christmas is fast approaching, and every year it seems that those who are the most special to us are always the hardest to buy for. I find that the presents that mean the most are the ones that have been made with the same care and appreciation that you have for the person in mind. Bleu de Chauffe bags are the perfect representation of that. 

Made in Averyon, France, each bag is made by qualified artisans renowned for their skill, experience and expertise. They are committed to traceability and ethically source all of their materials. A vegetal tanning process is used on all leather and the canvas bags are made with waxed cotton. You can truly feel the quality in these bags. Practical and stylish, each bag is signed and dated by the artisan. 

 

 

Also from France, artisanal men's soaps from Le Baigneur. Le Baigneur aims to meet men's expectations by creating 100% natural, organic care products and favoring ingredients from local productions. The butters and oils used in production of the soaps are never heated, thus retaining the nutritional qualities. The shaving soap comes in two different scents and is available with a beautiful porcelain bowl. We also have boar-hair shaving brushes by Landon Dix to complete the set. 

bleu de chauffe bags - $268-$628
le baigneur soaps - $13.50-$59

Welcome, Brooks England May 04 2013

Most of you may know Brooks from their bicycle saddles, they have quite the lineage.  We're proud to include their bags in our product line up:


'The Barbican'


'The Eton'



'The Brixton' Tote and Shoulder Bag

'

'The Pickwick' Backpack

"Over almost a century and a half, Brooks England has grown from a small workshop to a byword in quality craftsmanship. Back in 1865, John Boultbee Brooks left his hometown of Hinckley in Leicestershire with just £20 in his pocket.

He headed for Birmingham, where in 1866 he established a business in horse harnesses and general leather goods in Great Charles Street under the name JB Brooks & Co. In 1878, the unfortunate death of Mr Brooks’ horse led to a stroke of inspiration. Unable to afford another horse, he borrowed a bicycle in order to commute to work. He found the seat so uncomfortable that he vowed to do something about it.

On 28 October 1882, Mr Brooks filed his first saddle patent. Waddling cyclists everywhere rejoiced and the new product was a roaring success."

All of the bags are exceptionally crafted in Italy and England.  They are water resistant and thoughtfully designed.
