The bag and its unknown creator sparked a vision –
to create the very finest luxury goods, entirely in America.
This bag from another century, believed to come from Italy, seemed to call to us from a different age. Its very existence, after all these years, sounded a challenge. A last chance to act before the skills and knowledge that crafted this masterpiece were lost forever.
We took up that call. And we hold the torch high.
Knowing that the very finest leather goods houses were started by harness- and saddle-makers, we knew that we would have to find those artisans in the United States. That is where we began. A century ago this would have been a bit easier, but in the age of the horseless carriage it was an arduous search through America’s back roads. One that eventually led to an Amish community still working with traditional tools and techniques.
This process of searching for an increasingly rare breed of craftsman continued for each component. From forged brass buckles to framemakers, we have found the very finest possible artisans in this country and proudly include their masterpieces in the Fischer Voyage journey.
