It's a special moment whenever a longtime client stops by our shop to show us with pride how beautifully their bag has aged. In fact, it’s something we take great pride in; It reflects the rarity of craftsmanship.
Before our launch in 2017, we spent three years with our team of world-class Italian artisans to develop our unique method of crafting. Our goal was to find the perfect balance between lightweight yet lasting, elegant yet functional, effortless yet hardworking. We wanted our pieces to get better with time and develop a rare patina and coveted slouch. In order to achieve these goals, we repurposed classic artisanal techniques in a completely new way. The result is our cutting edge collection that stands the test of time and only gets better with age.
In celebration of our craftsmanship, we asked some of our closest friends to let us borrow their bags to document this process as part of an ongoing project titled “The Métier Time Capsule.” Each image celebrates a different aspect of our craft. We hope you enjoy.
