Made to Order - Please allow 10-12 weeks for production.
Our mailbag is based on the satchel carried by postal carriers for most of the 20th century. We've reduced the size from the original and added a few features for practical reasons including a handle on the back of the bag for quick grabs, an extra pocket, and a closure strap to keep the bag from bowing out when filled.
This bag is great for carrying everyday and for weekend trips as well. It has a comfortable strap for extended carry and lays well against the body. It is great for quick access and carries well, empty or packed.

Unsolicited review of our mailbag below:
We are retiring the Augustine indefinitely with this last batch. I love the Augustine but we have to move on for now. If you wanted one, this is likely your last chance. No pressure. ;) This last batch turned out beautifully as we made them with this amazing Chocolate Silky Calf Hide. It feels better than any other leather we have ever used. It is supple but the construction methods create a structured handbag. I am sad to see it go in many ways, but being such a small company we have to focus our efforts differently moving forward if we want to remain relevant and sustainable.
Representing years of design and development, each Augustine is handmade solely by Emil and takes over fifty hours to create. THis handbag utilizes the best materials and craftsmanship to ensure a handbag that is beautiful, elegant, and timeless all while remaining practical.
