Vanessa Vaught got her inspiration after watching her grandfather handmake leather saddles in their garage. Each saddle would take up to a year to make, and the smell of the leather enthused Vanessa and ignited her passion for making leather goods. Vanessa crafts each bag in her Houston, Texas studio where she dedicates her line to her grandfather. He was the essence of a true American entrepreneur and produced a variety of leather goods for many years. The inspiration from her family allows Vanessa to craft each bag to perfection, with the intention of lasting a lifetime.
