Russet Horsehide Leather
We designed the LOST WORLDS
HORSEHIDE COURIER BAG to provide our characteristic durability and benchmark
build in a multi-featured carryall of exceptional style and beauty for any
occasion. Using materials and hardware that exceed anything virtually at any
price for exclusivity and strength. Made of course by us at our own NYC factory.
It doesn't look like any other leather bag because it isn't like any other bag.
Masculine, rugged and refined to levels of hipness the flavor-of-the-month
trendy bags can't touch. Yet women love it too. And at a great price
for this level of specification and quality.
