About the Designer:

The leather industry has some not-so-nice secrets - think toxic tanning and a serious plastic habit. Minor History is doing things differently. 

90% of the world's leather is chrome tanned. This metal based process is extremely toxic to humans and the environment. Minor History uses a natural process called vegetable tanning instead. Most leather bags use plastic liners and fillers for reinforcement. Minor History's naturally structured leathers make the bag of your dreams with no plastic in sight.

All of their hides, sourced from the US and Italy, are verified byproducts of the food industry. They honor this valuable, natural material by using the entirety of the hide in each production run.

Minor History works with small factories in China that produce based on need, instead of inflated units, and work to waste as little as possible. They conduct ethical audits of their factories to ensure they meet SEDEX SMETA 4-pillar requirements. In this era of throwaway goods, Minor History is making things that last. Their hardware is solid brass and all of their materials (down to the thread!) are Oeko-Tex and REACH tested and approved.
