ALL SHIPPING DUTIES AND TAXES ARE COVERED BY MÉTIER
Hand-crafted in Italy by the highest-skilled artisans in the world, each Métier piece takes 20 hours on average to make. Every bag has been tested in a facility in Italy that simulates 20 years of use to ensure it lasts a lifetime and beyond.
The unmistakeable balance of elegance and function is evident in each design, from an easily accessible card slot for your most used card to a hidden loop to hold your keys in place. A hard working bag created for the modern world, discover the Métier Atelier.
Re-purposing artisanal methods, we studied the preassure points of each bag and developed a unique way to reinforce just around those points. The result is a bag that is durable yet super lightweight. Our classic Vagabond has a hidden metal stud system underneath the handle to provide extra support from the upward force of the handle. We use extra strong thread, commonly used in crafting shoes for the most critical points.
Each individual panel of leather too, has a precise and unique thickness depending on its function. For example, the Private Eye (above), has front and back panels that provide structure and are thicker than the side panels which merely exist to hold the contents in. This meticulous process ensures no unnecessary weight is added.
THE FINEST DETAILS
From our solid brass hardware to our precisely painted edgepaint, no detail is too small to perfect. Our handles are crafted from a soft rope whose width has been exactly measured to grip comfortably, while the foil logo is sourced from suppliers who restore Italian cathedrals to ensure it stands the test of time.
We exclusively use natural leathers of the highest quality from Italy and France. Natural leathers are not stamped or covered, allowing them to develop a unique patina with wear. Like a fine bottle of wine, or a coveted pair of Japanese raw denim, each bag only gets better with time.
MODERN PROBLEM SOLVERS
Designed from the inside out, each Métier piece was created for motion. Pockets are intuitively placed and easy to access, seamlessly enhancing every journey. Each modular piece is meant to reflect the ultimate balance of craftsmanship and practicality for modern day life.
Métier is a luxury leather goods house that enhances the life and work of the modern-day man and woman. Anchored by a modular collection of timeless pieces, we believe purposeful design can transform daily experiences. Each bag is handcrafted in Italy, marrying timeless tradition and exceptional attention to detail with a profound understanding of the way that we live now.
