Designed for Life's Adventures

Since our founding over 100 years ago, we have taken great pride in using the finest materials, intentional design and generations of knowledge to create long lasting accessories that will accompany you on life’s many adventures.

Our roots date back to 1905 to when John Willis Hulme founded our company in St. Paul, Minnesota. Originally a manufacturer of canvas awnings, the company made tents for the army in World War I and soon expanded into cases, bags and equipment for outdoorsmen. This spirit of exploration and adventure lives on in our products along with uncompromising quality and attention to detail.

Today we make products loved by modern adventurers – travelers, life-explorers, and those with a taste for the unique. Every travel piece, briefcase, and handbag is designed to be a resilient companion for all your journeys, whether around the world, across town, or to the top of the proverbial corporate ladder. Each bag offers the sensory experience of high-quality leather made from American hides, with solid brass hardware and heavyweight stitching. Our exclusive leather only improves with age, gradually developing a patina and wear that witness the stories of a fully-embraced love of life.

As you journey forward in life, we hope to be trusty companions along the way. We hope you enjoy our products, just as much as we enjoy creating them.
