It all began in a basement in Omaha: one man and the vintage sewing machine he found on Craigslist. Now, 8 years later, a bona fide leathersmith has emerged, filling orders—and earning media attention—across the globe. The man: Chris Hughes. His company: Artifact Bag Co. Hughes has hired a few extra hands to help out around the workshop, but everything is still made in-house, by hand, from materials he’s deemed worthy of the lifetime warranty that comes with every product.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of bag color combination: All Black, Dark Khaki/Brown, Navy/Brown, Rust/Cordovan, Sage/Saddle, or Slate/Saddle.
Made of water-resistant waxed canvas, the Carry Tote makes an excellent companion at the beach, in the park, or on the bus. In addition to the main compartment, it features two roomy side pockets, an internal pocket with pen slot, and a leather key fob. Made of Horween-sourced leather, the handle is long enough to be slung over the shoulder or carried in hand. All of the brass and copper hardware has been hand-aged and -hammered, and the bag is finished with mil-spec nylon thread for added durability—a durability that Artifact Bag Co. backs with a lifetime warranty.
