Crown Cap’s president Paul Leinburd has teamed up with accessory maven, Jessica Jensen to produce a fashion forward but functional accessory collection. “Paul [Leinburd] was looking to expand their in-house brand, Nathaniel Cole, into additional accessory categories, says Jensen, [he] was introduced to me through industry contacts. We immediately clicked and begun developing the company’s bag division.” The newly designed line consists of messenger, totes, structured duffle bags and small leather essentials.  “The collection is crafted from the highest quality of distressed full-grain leather, bridle tan leather, durable wax wear cotton canvas and wool plaid,” says Jensen.

Crown Cap began manufacturing headwear for the Western Canadian farm trade in 1934, where prairie workers appreciated the well-made fitted used to battle weather conditions. Jensen stays true to the historic aesthetic of the Nathaniel Cole brand but incorporates a hip, laid-back style with high end finishes. “The bag collection was inspired by a fusion of modern urbanity and working class ruggedness, explains Jensen, the Nathaniel Cole line revives vintage looks with a sense of 21st century style and practicality, while maintaining durability in the design, materials and construction.”
