Mr PQ, myself and the team have been waiting some time to reveal these two new products. We are thrilled to announce our new full leather bag and iPad Air case. This is what we mean when we say Crafted, Pad & Quill. - Mrs.PQ(Kari)

Prop it, hold it like a paperback, either way your going to love touching it. We won’t tell.
The Full Tale
The Leather: The Best.
When you consider our leather quality, begin by sorting a 100 hides of American grass-fed cattle. You might select 20 hides and now you are holding the best hides in the world, period. Those other 80 hides are split, chopped, pressed, stamped, dyed and shipped to some overseas 'genuine' leather factory. Our hides are shipped to San Pancho, Mexico where they are skillfully tanned, old world style, all the way through top to bottom. Next they are dyed to deep onyx black or dark chocolate brown. The depth and character of our leather would make even ole Bessie proud.
The Craftsman: Qualified
When Alvaro at our factory receives the leather, it is inspected and then turned over to our craftsman where every hide is marked to designate portions for each specific piece of your bag. Forget the automated assembly line, we entrust the cutting to 3 or 4 seamstress who work by hand to prepare the panels for assembly. Your bag is then stitched together with parachute grade thread by one of our guys who have been sewing on average for 15-20 years. In San Pancho, the seamstress art is passed from father to son, generation after generation.
You doubt the quality? Just glance at the tag inside your bag; it’s signed by the craftsman. Quality so exquisite you might just add our expert to your Christmas letter list.
About the worse thing we can think of is you, inadvertently clinging to a branch, feet dangling over the raging Colorado River, the strap from your bag forestalling your drop into the river. Second only to this, you make an epic leap through the closing doors of the subway, your bag trailing behind, grasped in hand by above mentioned strap. At either point I’m glad you didn’t settle for some inferior bag held together by cheap alloy metals that snap under stress. No, what you really want at those times is the unbreakable, ultra-durable, high copper content hardware we procure to construct and embellish your bag. Think of it this way, when you “belay on” do you want a carabiner or a paper clip? Yep, we thought so too.
See scenario one and two above. Now substitute parachutes thread for that spool of stuff you used to fly your bi-colored kite as a kid. You never did find that kite, did you? Your bag is going to hold together for life.
We went to the automotive industry to find a lining that was soft to the touch, but seriously rugged. This high strength soft cotton lining will endure.

We back up every bag with 25 year leather warranty and a 30 day Money back Promise. Welcome to the family!
