Shot by our friend Stefan Junir, we’ll take you through a visual journey through the creative and production process.

    Design


    Drafting. Discussion. Edit. Reedit. Back to the drawing board. We meticulously consider every aspect of a bag. Nothing leaves this stage until we’re head over heels about an idea.

    Source


    US sourced and high quality materials are sought after to construct everything we make. All leather, canvas, hardware, or thread were carefully chosen to cohesively build something beautiful and long-lasting.

    Create


    Our dedicated sewing and leather teams work closely together to make sure every bag is made with the utmost precision.

    Finish


    We trim and burn threads, critically inspect, and thoughtfully package your finished bag, whether we send it to your home or hand it off to you instore. 

     It takes loving effort to materialize everything made here. Find the one you’ll love, too.

Boat Tote Family

Jul 06, 2016

JV Tradeshop

A Joshu +Vela hero item, the Boat Tote remains a timeless and steadfast favorite of customers and the team alike. And what’s not to love?  The sleek original silhouette is only elevated by its composition: durable 24oz canvas, thick bridle leather handles and shoulder strap, a double canvas bottom, military spec enclosure, and copper rivets. Truly, built to last is an understatement.

    Later, we took our trusted tote to the next level and launched it in all Leather. It’s the perfect synthesis of luxury and utility. With Redwood—our latest colorway – joining the family, you can find the color that undoubtedly speaks to you.

    Now, we’re excited to introduce the latest manifestation of the Leather Boat Tote, available now in Small. This is perfect for those who’ve admired our line of Boat Totes, but longed for a smaller everyday bag.

From the misty fog to dazzling cityscapes that surround us, there is an undeniable beauty we find in the variations of grey. We're proud to introduce our Totes, Duffles, and Backpacks in grey, our brand new colorway. Bright enough to attract the eye yet subdued enough to satiate one's monochrome wishes, our line in grey offers a refreshing opportunity to wear something that reflects the natural and metropolitan worlds we love.
