We at LINDQUIST are artists and makers. In the midst of a world in a rush, we are committed to thinking broadly, ethically, and generationally. Every object from our studio will be characterized by the timelessness and collaborative spirit of artisan craft.

The Swedish word Lagom suggests items that are in balance, in moderation: perfect-simple. Each LINDQUIST piece will reflect the work of artists inspired by this ethos. The designers and artisans at LINDQUIST focus on naturally-dyed leather goods made for living, made to last, growing patina with each passing year. LINDQUIST objects are designed to be with you for the long haul, developing character alongside you through a lifetime of use.


Each LINDQUIST piece is embossed with a symbol which tells the story of how your piece came to be. The numbers represent which edition your bag is and the letters represent which Artist worked on your piece.

We work only with artisans who take pride in producing the best leather on the market: raw materials that are made patiently, naturally, and with a commitment to excellence and sustainability at every stage of craft.

Our leather is fully vegetable-tanned using all natural tannins, a process that takes longer, and lasts longer. We also believe in working with artisans who respect not only the quality of their product, but also the impact of their process. We commit that we will always source our materials from those who demonstrate respect for the social, economic, and ecological impact of their work. We believe that our objects should last generations, and we know that to hand them down with pride to those that follow, we all need to produce and consume in a sustainable and ethical way.

Your LINDQUIST object will age alongside you. It will never crack or peel. Instead, it will develop the patina of an artisan object, revealing character capturing the story of how you use, carry, and wear it over years and decades.


Vachetta Leather

Vachetta leather is a full grain, naturally processed leather distinguished by its smooth appearance. Because it is not treated with preservatives or chemicals, the leather will patina — changing, darkening and improving over time through contact with your hands and exposure to the elements. Although two raw vachetta bags may look similar in their nascent state, they will invariably become distinct as they age. 

We developed our vachetta leather in collaboration with the 100-year old tannery from whom we source our leather and it is finished by hand, in house.

Milled Vegetable Tanned Leather

Our fully vegetable tanned milled leather is soft and supple, with a natural pebble from the tumbling process. At Lindquist we are committed to considering our resource consumption and designed our collection to use as much of every hide as possible, therefore you may notice variation across pieces in the size and form of the pebble.
