 Why buy a Sailsmith bag instead of a “big brand” bag?

A Sailsmith Bag is produced by one person, me.  I fabricate your valley cove canvas shoulder bag from start to finish, ensuring the highest quality available.  As I offer a 100 year warranty I am confident in the durability of every Sailsmith Bag that passes out the door into a customers hands.  There are no little “errors” glossed over by trim as may happen at a larger bag making facility with workers who are not as concerned about quality.   Your bag will only cost a little bit more and you will always know who made your Sailsmith Bag, me, A. Christos Contakos.
