Top 10 Commuter BackpacksRead
Launched in 2015 by the New York-based design collective Aesthetic Movement, Minor History creates smart, sturdy, quality leather accessories to help carry the stuff of life. They focus on well-priced leather goods that are simple, modern, and not overly concerned with the trappings of fashion. Pared-down silhouettes convey a quiet confidence, made striking by bold expressions of color. Each piece is intentionally unlined, using uninterrupted hides. Minimal stitching and sparse use of hardware allow them to use the highest quality materials - American hides, vegetable tanned leathers, and solid, un-lacquered brass. These materials only improve these simple leather bags over time, gently aging with use. Their hope is that each Minor History piece lives a long life with its wearer, taking on its own history, however minor, over time.
