We evaluate our manufacturing partners on three primary criteria: capability, consistency and service. Our partners must have the capabilities - machinery, skills and experience - that are essential to our vision and our quality commitments. Partners who are willing to invest in equipment and training, in employees and working conditions, and who are members of the small group of people who have passed down traditional leathercraft and kept it alive. Secondly, this capability must be consistent - highest quality must always mean highest quality, regardless of who is on vacation or how many we are producing. Thirdly we look at service, tying ourselves to partners who are willing to invest in our future as well as their own, and who understand that our customer is also their customer. We manufacture primarily in Pakistan using hand-finished Kashmiri leather and German and Japanese hardware. In the end though, where leather craft is concerned, it is our partners who have evaluated us, deciding whether our vision is in fact worthy of their rare and sought after experience. Without the access and mentoring that we have received since the beginning, City+Cargo as it exists today would never have been possible. (Shukria Bhai Raja!)
We are working hard to build a world class company - with a focus on highest quality materials, shortest possible supply chain, and traditional hand construction that will exceed our customers' needs.
