Mail Bag Collection No. 200 | PIONEER SHOP


We love classic, authentic designs from the past.  The original US Postal Mail Bags are some of the most interesting for us and widely sought after by collectors worldwide.  

The original US Postal Mail Bags were introduced in the late 1800’s and the last ones were made sometime in the late 1960’s.  From these designs we now have modern-day “messenger” bags. We wanted to stay true to the original designs but with some logical and practical upgrades.  Read more below or visit our website for more details.

THE LEATHER

We never blinked on this.  Horween was the only leather we considered using for this collection. Tanned in Chicago since 1905 they are the experts in the trade. We used Horween Dublin in a 5-6oz. weight.  100% vegetable tanned using the same liquors that is used in their famous Shell Cordovan, Dublin is slightly firm initially, due to the beautiful waxed top coat. The pull-up is amazing and it will patina with true character while lasting generations. 

MADE IN CALIFORNIA...

We proudly designed & crafted this entire collection in San Diego, California. Made with uncompromising construction details like hand-set copper rivets, beveled, polished and stained raw edges and metal reinforced panels
