It is difficult to describe American Heritage without utilizing visual imagery to stimulate the mind. This is due in part to the fact that, not only does a picture speak a thousand words, but that J.W. Hulme perfectly reproduces the essence of this genre in their products. I had the opportunity to thoroughly peruse one the bags from their American Heritage collection while sitting next to a fellow on an airplane. in addition, he was kind enough to let me gather his thoughts on the product. His testimony to the quality of the bag was extremly sincere and left me with quite an impression. Hence, the in depth look at the brand and their American Heritage collection.
All of the American Heritage bags come with a complimentary custom embossed patch for your initials. The leather is saddle brown distressed full-grain leather and is hand buffed to an antiqued patina finish. All the leather is tanned in the USA using environmentally friendly processes.
