The Aviation Collection is inspired by actual vintage-aviation bags. Each bag is named after US military planes, past and present. We chose to work with canvas, leather materials `and antique brass accessories to fully embrace the style from that era. We made all the Aviation bags with a nylon water-resistant interior and ample pockets to store all everything you will need for your own personal mission!
The Pelican was inspired by a WWII Air Force gear bag. It is made of waxed canvas with leather accents. This bag will surely generate a buzz and likely some envy from aviation enthusiasts that cross your path.

This family owned factory made its start 3 generations ago making leather jackets. The Cordova family wanted to introduce a new project to keep the producers employed outside of jacket season - thus the start of the bag production. This not only led to permanent employees, but increased production which created more jobs and moved operations to a larger and more advanced factory.
There were many reasons we chose to work with this factory but what stood out most was how close everyone was and how they enjoyed coming to work each day. After our initial visit, we both agreed that this was one of the most spirited factories we visited in Mexico. There were no barriers between the management and producers, they all sat together at lunch, joked around and played soccer every Friday afternoon across the street. This factory was our home away from home during our stay in Mexico!
Roberto, Alicia and Juan Carlos “Toro” made this bag!
