Last Chance to Pre-Order AW18 (20% off!)
Thursday, June 14 - Sunday, June 17 2018
Aren't things supposed to go on sale at the end of a season?
Isn't everything on flash sale or seasonal sale all the time anyway?
What's the point of offering discounts on the new stuff?
We do business a little sideways. Most of our Continuity Collection (styles available season after season) is made-to-order: we only cut what we've sold, in an effort to reduce waste and avoid adding to the incredible amount of fashion overstock that ends up on the bargain rack or in a landfill. As a result, our Continuity Collection is rarely on sale - we don't have inventory to get rid of and we don't have manufacturing costs to recoup.
So instead, we offer two chances to Pre-order (that's reserve, to the language sticklers among us) the upcoming season's styles at a discount. We know this is counter-intuitive but for us, it makes a lot of sense. Quite simply, it's better for everybody in the chain. It helps us get a sense of how much material to order so we don't run out and be forced to extend lead-times. It helps our tanneries fulfill our order more efficiently by preparing the leathers all in a bigger lot. It helps the environment by saving on fossil fuel expenditure, since the fewer trips our materials make from tannery to us, the less carbon is produced. And of course, it's a way for us to say thank you to you for supporting our work and our sideways business model.
So go for it. Send our tanneries off on their August holidays with a nice strong order, and get the goods before the cool weather is upon us.

With our thanks!
We're adding seasonal collections to Bartleby Objects, starting Spring 2018
In addition to our perennial Classic Collection, we'll begin introducing a new few styles to address the current season.
We usually like the spaces in between things, to add nuance to the fashion/craft scene, to complicate the conversation. But frankly, 2018 is complicated enough. Our Spring 18 collection is here to simplify the idea. A tote is definitely a tote. A cuff is a cuff. In a time when little is what it purports to be, we've distilled forms to be exactly what they are, made with the same level of attention we apply to all our work. Simple? Yes. Common? No.
Starting with our Morris Tote in two brand new Italian leathers, Natural Aged and Oiled Slate.
Lighter in weight, and oiled to supple finish, Morris can be rolled up to be packed for your next trip, while being sturdy enough for everyday. Detailed without the kitsch, clean without the cold.
Then there's our ethereal Essida Mesh Bag feather-light, practical, and perfect for days on the beach. It's a true mesh, Leno weave pattern, in a delicate scale without too much stretch.
And our forays into items worn on the wrist or neck...not quite jewelry, but a distillation of the concept with minimal makerly intervention.
Housekeeping: keep your eye out for some changes in how you can order our made-to-order items. We had such a great reception to our pre-order offer that we're working with the e-commerce developers to extend the programme to all of our made-to-order items. More on this soon...
In the meantime, we wish you a very happy Spring!
Join us for the debut of our collaboration with the excellent Jane D'Arensbourg!
