    The Vagabond is a versatile and Hip alternative to a bag for carrying your things.
    More than just a carry for flutes and drumsticks you can use The Vagabond to carry brushes, art supplies, a bottle of Scotch, a bottle of Olive Oil, cigars, a book, journals and sooooo much more… even as a small gym duffel.

    You can do this because of 2 things.
    1. It comes standard in 3 different widths, Slim, Medium and Wide.
    2. You can customize how tall it is.

    It’s Hip because of how Unique of a way this is to carry things.

    The removable shoulder strap and the positioning of the 2 d-rings allows you the comfort of carrying this multiple ways on your shoulder OR… remove the shoulder strap and stuff it into something larger.
    The option is yours. More on this in the video below.

    The Vagabond comes in 3 sizes and we show them all on this page for comparison purposes only.
    This is the SLIM size which is 4.75 inches wide.
    The Standard height is 13 inches with an overall height of 19 inches.

    You can add to the height to suit you purposes in 2 inch increments.
    Each 2 inch increment is an additional $4.
    Whatever height you choose, the finished height will be 6 inches more so it can flap over on the top for a nice secure closure.
    There is also a Medium and Wide size and they are linked below

    We make these from our full grain lighter weight Italian leathers so they are not available in the Rustic Brown, Rustic Black or Chocolate Brown which are heavier.
    We added our limited edition Wintergreen to the list just because it’s so beautiful.
    Additionally, we brought back our elegant Montblanc Black just for this Unique.
    Black is beautiful and elegant and we didn’t want to not offer Black as one of the choices.

    THE 3 SIZES ARE: (this item is for the SLIM size).

        4.75 inches wide, starting at 13 inches tall

        MEDIUM: 7.5 inches wide, starting at 15 inches tall

      WIDE: 10 inches wide, starting at 17 inches tall.

    NOTE: For the SLIM, 6 additional inches are included for the flap so the Standard overall height is 19 inches.

    The ½ inch black 2mm thick suede is very strong and perfect for securing the flap to keep your carry safely stowed.
    It’s 2 straps are each about 25-30 inches in length and will easily wrap around The Vagabond several times.

    Your choice of antique brass or nickel finish on your hardware.

    THIS SIZE is the SLIM. The other 2 sizes can be found here: MEDIUM or WIDE.
    The starting height of 13 inches does NOT include the additional 6 inches we add for the flap.
    Whatever custom height you choose, the overall height will be an additional 6 inches.

    For more details on this and placement of the d-rings watch the video below.
    The video also shows a host of different things we have placed inside of the different sizes and it gives you an idea of what you can do with the alternate lengths.

    The starting length is the stated price above.
    The prices rises uniformly for longer lengths in increments of 2 inches.
    Each 2 inches of additional length is an additional $4.

    The price does not include the ¾ inch shoulder strap because if you already have a shoulder strap, why pay for another one, right.
    A matching Shoulder Strap is available for an additional cost. It’s ¾ inches wide and infinitely adjustable from 31 to 56 inches with a swivel clip (included in the dimensions) on each side.

    Select your length. Standard length for the SLIM is 13 inches. We will automatically add 6 inches to the overall length for whatever length you choose. This is to accommodate the flap over part. There is no extra charge for this because it is part of the function of this item. (See video for more details). Select your leather color Select your hardware finish Order the matching ¾ inch matching leather shoulder strap (additional) if you would like one.

    Watch the video below for construction details and the Couture style French Seam we used in making this item. It provides a seam of double the strength and a more sophisticated, elegant look to the final product.
    We also double roll the top ¾ inch of all the different size Vagabonds to eliminate any stretching of the leather. It’s another one of the proprietary soft leather techniques we use in making our products stand the test of time.

    IF... you would like a custom size, like for a rifle or shotgun case, please email us for a custom quote.

    Italian Leather: Our Primary Ingredient

    Our Italian Leather

    We are soft leather experts and have developed proprietary techniques for working with softer Chrome tanned Italian leathers.

    Unlike the stiffer, belt like, Vegetable tanned leathers, our leathers are soft right out of the box. Like the blue jeans you wear that only get softer and more comfortable with age, our leathers will immediately conform to your lifestyle and develop a great patina over time, making your life’s adventures more memorable and meaningful.

    Unbranded English Cow –Chrome/Oil tanned - Full Grain – Struck thru (dyed all the way thru the hide) Tanned in Italy – Unavailable anywhere else in the world.We worked with a 6th Generation tannery in Italy for 2 years to develop our proprietary leather.

    Hand-torn European Fine Art & Writing papers

    European fine Paper

    We offer you a choice of 3 European, hand-torn papers: Arches Text Wove, Frankfurt White, and Frankfurt Creme.

    Whether you write, draw or do both... using anything from a fountain pen to watercolor brushes, you will have the perfect paper.

    Our Standard paper is Arches Text Wove. The Frankfurt papers are our premium papers and while made more for fountain pens, work very well for water coloring too.

    Our papers are all 120gsm in weight which give them the body you will love.
    They will not feather or bleed with a fountain pen and are acid free. You can also watercolor on our papers. They take light and heavy washes well and will dry completely flat.

    And because you can write on both sides with any pen or pencil, it's like having twice the amount of usable pages you would have in a book with thinner paper.

    We also hand tear all of our papers from larger parent sheets to give you the rough, authentic and artisanal look and feel.

  • Personalize Any Item

    If there’s one thing that really gets us off it’s making your item look totally cool and unique.

    And, when it comes to Personalizing your item, nothing gets more personal and unique.
    That’s why we offer so much more than just initials, a name or a short line of text.

    While it’s impossible to list all the creative and different ways we can personalize your book, bag or cover, we tried grouping them into the categories below. Any and all of these can be combined so if you need something special then contact us.

    Also, keep in mind that while we usually have standard placement for personalization, we can put it just about anywhere on your item at your request. There is no additional charge for that but you do need to tell us.

    See our Personalization Gallery for Ideas

    3 Initial, Full or Multi-line Personalization

    included in the ordering options for most journals and covers

    3 Initial Personalization... the simplest and most popular choice.

    If you get a cover or a journal with 3 Initial Personalization, at our discretion we will usually include a matching leather bookmark and will personalize it with the same 3 initials.

    Full or Multi-line Personalization includes up to 15 spaces, counting the spaces in between the words or name.

    But just in case you are really close, we let you fudge 20% more by letting you add up to 18 spaces. When entering your desired pesonalization please remember that what you enter is CaSE sEnseTIve.

    We can put more letters on a single line but if it goes over the space limit then it will need to be entered as an additional line and will be charged accordingly.


    We have a Unique & Growing collection of Symbols which we can put on your item.

    To see the full collection just click on the BUTTON below.
    When ordering a Symbol we give you the choice of adding up to 3 initials directly below it.

    Symbols can also be combined with a Patch but must be ordered separately.

    See Symbols Collection


    Leather Patches are one of the most Unique forms of personalization we know of and nobody that we know of does it.

    This is where we create a leather patch, put whatever you want on it… a Symbol, up to 3 full lines of type…. basically, whatever you would like, and sew the patch onto your item. Because setup on these can take a long time, we typically make at least 2 just in case we make a mistake. But we usually don’t so in that case we will either just give you the second one or sew it onto your bookmark (if it's included) and if it fits.

    Combinations & Variations:
    We can combine patches, Symbols, Single or Multi-line Personalization in whatever way/s you would like.

    There are near unlimited variations and we do our best to make your patch look as cool as possible.
    But if you have certain placement needs or desires then you can just let us know.

    See our Personalization Gallery for Ideas

    Custom Logos and Graphics

    If you have a logo or graphic you would like debossed into your item or on a patch then we can do that too.
    The max size is 5x2 inches. We send out to have a special metal die made which can be used over and over again.
