MIFLAND : A LEATHER GOODS COMPANY
Mifland is a leather goods company founded between New York & Atlanta, Georgia. The company came about due to the need for a great travel friendly bag for those who do not check bags as the business trips are often short. Often travel rucksacks and bags alike are often technical. The goal was to design a collection of items that are extremely simple in design and easy to understand. Understanding the idea that "Less is better". Many carry goods were developed and many were also discarded. In addition to both form and function it is our goal to never ignore durability. Most Mifland goods take small cues from old military tools and equipment as we always hope to match their durability. All items are constructed of durable grade leather ranging from 5-7 ounces of different leathers. Like most vintage collectors & enthusiasts we would often try and understand the story of these vintage items through the patina. Every rucksack is already unique as they are all handmade, but grow more in uniqueness with more wear and a personal patina develops with daily wear.
Whether it be for leisure, business, or an international journey. Transporting your personals from one destination to the next has never been more exciting. Our minimalist design concept and use of premium materials provides for an interesting combination that's suitable for any environment. The fine detailing matched with a sense of ruggedness tells a story of our inspiration, a time when travel accessories were made to function against the elements and age well with time.
Mifland is now offered in a America & Japan.
Handmade: // Process
Mifland we use several assortments of leather that range from 3 ounces to 7. Most pieces are cut and assembled by hand, which translates to a uniqueness specific to the leather used. There are many ways to stitch together leather, but the most effective has become a signature at MIFLAND . The figure eight method is a method that involves heavy-duty waxed thread and a back and forth stitch. This combination of material and process ensures durability. All items are bound together using heavy duty waxed thread. Using this combination of materials ensures both durability and rugged-ness.
