About us

8.1.2 Is about being the best version of yourself; every single day. We aim to equip people with well-made, loyal merchandise that’s more so a companion rather than a product; creating an experience that renews itself every time. In this journey, count on us to provide the best gear for all your life's adventures.

We initiated as a simple idea. An idea that quickly transformed into a passion for social change allowing its founders to take action towards a bigger goal all the while taking small, calculated steps to get there. It was seeing the opportunity in people as opposed to places, to understand deeply the notion of sustainability and to implement it in ways that will not benefit select individuals but the society as a whole. In doing this, 8.1.2 needs the support and encouragement of extraordinary people like you who believe that true talent deserves equal opportunity. Such is the inspiration behind the 8.1.2 tradition.

8.1.2 full grain leather bags are handcrafted by some of the finest artisans who originate from a tradition of master craftsmanship. We are dedicated to delivering you the very best in class leather products, with our main emphasis on three distinct characteristics; dependability, customer service and uniqueness. Since its inception in early 2014, these humble beginnings are shaping the future and setting the foundation for the 8.1.2 tradition.

We serve clients all around the globe, providing high quality handcrafted 100% authentic leather products. We are thrilled to have you here and sincerely hope that you enjoy our products as much as we enjoy making them for you. If you have any questions or comments, please do not hesitate to contact us.

8.1.2
Be Your Best
           

All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” –Abraham Lincoln

Simplicity

…is beauty! We apply principles of fairness into the marketplace; business that drives social change and sustainability while creating employment and enriching lives in places where hope is scarce but talent is abundant.

Integrity

Our people are our integrity so it naturally lies in every corner of our business model. At 8.1.2, we believe in investing in people and relationships for the returns on such investments cannot be measured in dollars. Our goal is to showcase the talents of our craftsmen, to bring the world’s attention to them, to give them the credit they deserve for the extraordinary work they do each day. To give them the right price for the toil and sweat that goes into each bag; and that is not measured in dollars. It is recognition, respect and an opportunity to open up to a whole new world.

Respect

Our goal is to empower people to be their best. We build strong, meaningful and lasting trade partnerships with our producers and clients alike.

We work hard to introduce new products in the market that people can relate to in terms of values and ideals. This makes every choice count and leaves a positive imprint on the world.
