#51 Made in the USA Vol.7

It seems I’m a little obsessed with bags and leather goods, probably half of my “Made in the USA” series being about these items. Anyway, today I’m presenting you with Joshu + Vela, a young San Francisco based brand which manufactures bags and other small leather items. Each piece is custom made, the canvas and leather are dosmetically sourced, vintage sewing machines are used.

Cause that’s the way they roll.

Joshu + Vela products can be found in the USA (duh.), Germany and Taiwan.

Now dear reader, please behold.
