Heirloom is a program that transforms YOUR well-loved materials into stunning and unique bags. Send in a loved one’s uniform, blanket, duffel bag, or other materials, to create a personalized handbag with memories of them all over it. We made it effortless—a style survey allows you to send in photos of your materials and to tell us what your preference is when it comes to leather color, size of the bag, and what aspects of the material you want to be showcased so you receive a handbag you’ll love forever.

Transform an old military uniform, blanket, duffle bag, or other materials into a keepsake you will cherish forever. How, you ask? We’ll walk you through it.
  1. Grab your materials

  2. Choose from one of our six available Heirloom Styles, there can be more than one out of a material depending on the size and what you would like to order - those bundles will be available in the design survey.

  3. Clean your materials, trust us, once they are in a bag - you’ll be happy you did!

  4. Fill out the design survey and check out!

  5. We send you a “mailing kit” you send it back to us with your items using the prepaid shipping label.

  6. Our Heirloom Operators work their magic (give the process about 6-8 weeks).

  7. We send you the finished product to carry with you every day.
