    My own little piece of history

    I’m so thrilled that I managed to get one of the last few antique leather bags - it feels incredibly special to have that link to the past with me as I’m going about my daily business. The rest of the bag is beautiful and so thoughtfully constructed as well and I adore the colour, slate. Thank you Peg and Awl, I love it!

    Quality and unique

    I love Peg and Awl— don’t let the price tag scare you. I often have issues with products lacking craftsmanship or falling apart after minimal use. Not with P&A!!

    The craftsmanship, quality, and style is outstanding.

    I have the small hunter satchel in slate and I’m in love. I carry it anytime I use a purse. It’s perfect and I adore it. I’ve been saving up for the rogue backpack (which comes in the same color :D)

    I can not wait to start my adventures with it.

    It’s styling is minimal but modern, durable but not gender specific. I love how I can finally get reliable products that match my rugged, adventurous and strong style.

    Perfect for anyone!

    My photo doesn't do it justice!

    As always with Peg and Awl, their product NEVER disappoints. My photo doesn't do it justice! I purchased this bag for an upcoming family trip and plan on using it as my daily work bag after. I can't imagine how long it took to create this! Worth every cent, like all products from this A+ shop.
