Immediate shipping. High quality belt U S A built. Best experience on E T S Y yet. This is a "You get what you pay for" retailer.

Excellent quality. Beats any designer bag out there. I don't think there can be a nicer bag.

About

basader : Traditional meets Contemporary, from Stockholm to Brooklyn

Hi, we're Elin and Philip, a couple living in Peterborough, NH, and owners of a small artisan bag company we call basader. Our brand was born in Brooklyn, NY, out of a love for enduring craftsmanship, and a passion for minimal aesthetics, basader is the culmination of our joint efforts and experience. Elin is the designer, maker, and driving force behind the basader name, while I enjoy communicating with our customers, organizing our collection, and growing our storefront.

Our initial entrance into the Etsy marketplace was a natural progression. Working as a knitwear designer at Ralph Lauren, Elin began experimenting with bag making in her free time. Using the highest-quality materials, traditional techniques, and contemporary design, the initial basader collection slowly unfolded before our eyes. Still, knowing we could never get our work to the right audience via traditional retail channels—which would have surely resulted in sizeable price increases—Etsy, was an obvious choice. And it was! Within the first year on Etsy, Elin was able to leave her position at Ralph Lauren and pursue our small business dream fulltime, something we never imagined possible.

Living in Brooklyn for more than 10 years, Elin was born and raised in a small town in Sweden, and initially drawn to Greenpoint in pursuit of a fashion degree at FIT. Infatuated on impact with the raw Brooklyn landscape, the basader brand can best be described as Scandinavian minimalism coupled with a coarse Brooklyn aesthetic. And likewise, raised in a small New England town, yet heavily influenced by contemporary minimal art, we share a similar aesthetic that we try to imbue in all of our work.

More than anything, we strive to offer the best possible craftsmanship, quality, and design at an approachable price, and Etsy truly is an incomparable platform. The ease of dialogue with customers is but one priceless example, and we feel that within the past several months, our small idea has been broadcast to an overwhelming audience. basader is a mission to offer high-quality fashion at affordable prices. To know that our customers are purchasing a piece that can be passed down for generations is a rewarding experience, and we’re so grateful that Etsy is helping us realize this dream.

International Shipping:
We are happy to offer worldwide shipping. But please keep in mind that your country of residence may charge customs fees on US parcels.

If you'd like to make a return, simply contact us for further details.

Return Shipping: unfortunately, unless we make a fulfillment error, the order is damaged in transit, or we misrepresent an item in one of our listings, we typically do not cover return shipping due to the prohibitive costs associated with shipping substantial/heavy leather bags.

If you have any questions at all about our return policy, please just let us know!
