We’ve been in the biz for over 15 years, so we know a good thing (and not so good thing) when we see it.
Fueled by the fashion industry’s not-so-nice secrets, we pride ourselves on skipping the sneaky stuff.
F*** the façade.
THEIRS: We won’t name any names, but a lot of companies use sneaky manufacturing tricks like adding plastic fillers, liners, and coatings to cover up poor workmanship. This sneaky stuff allows for low-quality materials to be sold at a 10x markup.
OURS: Hold the plastic, please. We’ve eliminated the need for structural liners by using full-grain leathers which are expertly engineered to hold their own structure while aging beautifully,
Minor History bags are even better with age.
THEIRS: To cut corners and lower cost, some companies use imitation leather in places where you won't notice, like bindings, straps backs, key loops.
OURS: We never use imitation leather on our products. Simple as that. We’re on a mission to bring you honest products that’ll last forever (& ever).
The leather bag you buy from us is 100% real leather 100% of the time.
THEIRS: Nothing ruins a bag like dingy hardware. Plated hardware tends to wear out quickly, killing the curb appeal of a bag you once loved.
OURS: Strong & Sturdy. Light & Bright. We only use solid brass hardware that looks good now and later. In fact we even offer a Lifetime Guarantee.
Minor History keeps up with your life for life.
