Forty Knots No Smoke

HometownNew York City SpecialtyLeathergoods Est.2015

Founded in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 2015, Forty Knots No Smoke is a one-man bag and accessories line built around the buy-it-once mentality. Blending the classic American aesthetic with European leather working techniques, the products strive to establish a new definition of quality goods.

Trained and based in New York, Théo Ginsburg lays every stitch, cuts every hide, finishes every edge, and sets every snap at his studio. No work is outsourced to third-party contractors and materials are sourced from the small, family-run suppliers. 40 Knots is the quintessential Maker. 


Made in New York. One at a time. Always.
