MINOR HISTORY: MAJOR BAG
SIMPLE DESIGN MEANS, IF THE TIME COMES, OUR PIECES CAN BE REPAIRED, INSTEAD OF TOSSED.
MINOR HISTORY is a brand we have carried in our stores and on our site for several years. The minimal and not-overly-trendy shapes speak to our client and personal brand vibe, but what we love more is the message behind what they do. By using domestically sourced veg-tanned leathers and conscious materials, thoughtful packaging--paired with overseas monitored production, the team from MINOR HISTORY create a "lifetime piece" you can carry for years to come, but with a price tag that keeps things completely doable.
All of our hides, sourced from the US and Italy, are verified byproducts of the food industry. We honor this valuable, natural material by using the entirety of the hide in each production run.
We work with small factories in China that produce based on need, instead of inflated units, and work to waste as little as possible. We conduct ethical audits of our factories to ensure they meet SEDEX SMETA 4-pillar requirements.
In this era of throwaway goods, we’re making things that last. Our hardware is solid brass and all of our materials (down to the thread!) are Oeko-Tex and REACH tested and approved.
