The Mate is a casual tote/briefcase hybrid that offers a luxurious feel, with its wrinkled vegetable tanned full-grain leather surface. Over time, this durable leather will develop a rich patina, ensuring a unique character all of its own. Solid handles in two layers of bridle leather guarantees a firm grip and a clean look with bridle leather continuing all the way around the bottom of the bag. Zip top YKK excella zippers with an inside featuring a zipped pocket, two smaller slide down pockets and a small leather patch pocket for business cards.

The leather used for this product is a textured, vegetable tanned full-grain cow leather. Be aware that this leather is extremely natural in both look and feel. Due to the natural dying process of the leather, it may vary in colour and texture, which is to be seen as a natural and unique part of the history of the leather/product and should not be regarded as a fault. Not two products crafted from this leather will look exactly the same. It’s a testimony to the individuality by working with materials defined by their natural provenience.


The Textured Full-Grain Leather is a recent addition to the collection. It seamlessly fits in, along our existing repository of natural materials and full-grain leathers. Soft and richly textured, this leather has been shrunk during its natural tanning process to accentuate the original veins of the hide. This unique surface is featured together with Mismo’s trademark full-grain bridle leather, or on their own, to create a unique expression. The Textured Full-Grain Leather pays homage to the art of tanning, as well as saluting the craft infused heritage of true leather artistry. All Textured Full-Grain Leather styles feature sturdy brass closures, adding onto to the leather’s singular look and feel. Each piece carries a personal signature of durable elegance.

Solid brass with golden coating

Our hardware is chosen for its durability and therefore made from a base of solid brass material. To obtain a homogenous surface and to prevent the brass from oxidating over time, they've been give a special Mismo antique golden coating. We source all of our hardware from Italy, working with specific articles that we’ve been using and testing for more than 15 years. We only use classic hardware pieces that we know will stand the test of heavy daily wear, like the sailor hooks that appear in many of our designs.

Black, vegetable tanned full grain bridle leather

Full grain is the best quality leather available, maintaining the top layer of the original cowhide intact and unaltered. This ensures that the leather is resistant and ages well, while also highlighting some of the natural characteristics of the grain, such as wrinkles, veins and pores. Bridle leather refers to the way that a piece of leather (cowhide) is treated with wax both on the flesh and grain sides of the leather. With a thickness of approx. 3mm, only the best grades of leather from older cattle can be used, as a certain age is required for the hide to attain the thickness and sturdiness necessary to become bridle leather.

Hand polished YKK Excella

Renowned Japanese company YKK has been producing zippers since 1934. We exclusively use their best zipper available, the Excella zippers. The YKK Excella is the Rolls Royce of zippers, with every element, down to the teeth, perfected and hand-polished. A smooth zipper is indispensable to a well-made bag, after all it should add utility, beauty and longevity to the bag rather than taking away from it.

My first purchase has been a lovey experience. Everything went smooth and fast (I live in France), products are high quality and beautiful and even better than some luxury well known brand. The customer service was nice and very helpful. I really recommend Mismo products and I will re order more products for sure. Thank you!

I bought my Mismo bag just a couple of months ago, and it's truly been a very pleasant experience. Sturdy, convenient and with a great design, a perfect bag to own for years to come. Delivered without problems in nice packing. Highly recommend it.
