Korchmar Leather Goods: Made in USA for 100 Years

Today, we’d like to celebrate an American family firm that has passed an important milestone: 100 years in business!

Disclosure: We’ll get a small commission if you buy through the links in this post: Please do!We’ve mentioned Korchmar before in a discussion on Made in USA dopp kits. This time, we decided to look a little further into this fourth-generation family business that started a century ago in Cincinnati.From the stylish Dunbar valet tray above to the Garfield Bomber Bag shown at the top of the post, the range of leather goods offered by the company is impressive and the prices are relatively affordable compared to other high-end leather goods.

I pride myself on traveling light and I would love to see just how many days worth of gear I could pack into the  beautifully-styled Lux Twain Weekender. The Twain is lined with a 6.4 oz. twill pattern fabric and features brass hardware.If a full leather bag is not your thing, you can always opt for the  waxed canvas/leather combo offered on the Sawyer Briefcase.

Please shop carefully as not all Korchmar items are made in America. The link at the beginning of the post will bring you to  items that are.
