Defy Bags give new life to old materials. Each bag is handcrafted from reclaimed, extremely tough materials: WWII military canvas, cargo-truck tarp, tractor tyres and Horween leather among others. These are complemented by incredibly strong brass Austri Aplin Cobra buckles from Switzerland. Chicago-based founder Chris Tag constructs each bag on an old industrial leather-machine. Each will age differently, and each will have it's own perfect aesthetic imperfections, it's own smells and textures, it's own heart. These are truly individual bags for individual people, bringing the principles of reuse, quality and craftsmanship together.
