Based in New York City, Anson Calder crafts innovative, contemporary leather goods for your everyday essentials. Made from full-grain calfskin from a French tannery that traces its origins to the 16th century, our innovative designs combine sleek storage with enduring quality. What's more, we are committed to giving back. We donate a portion of our proceeds to the FSH Society. Our founder, Curtis Calder, the son of an aeronautical engineer and a fashion merchandiser, started his career in banking, which took him all over the world. After trying an endless variety of wallets on the market and never finding the 'perfect' wallet that met his exacting specifications, he decided the best solution was to make his own. Because of his extensive traveling, he was constantly changing bags, trying to find the ideal bag that could cut the bulk yet carry everything he needed. It needed to be slim, stylish, versatile, and reliable. He ended up making his first bag at home on a sewing machine, and after dozens of iterations seeking to perfect his concept, he sought out the best materials and craftsmen with the necessary expertise to make it happen. Anson Calder bags and cases are truly a hybrid of engineered functionality and aesthetic appeal. We call it Engineered Luxury.
