"This arrived quicker than something I purchased on eBay in the same state! I waited until Christmas to give this to my bf so it was the first time we both saw it, we were both floored at how beautiful it is! Much, much better in person, he loves it and I couldn't be happier with my purchase."

-هتYelena Smirnova

"Bag is of better quality than I expected, especially the inside! Also, the shoulder strap are well-designed. Previously, I had a leather shoulder bag where the straps came off over time, but you can tell with this bag that the leather is thicker and will last much longer."

- Nico de Rover


"First and foremost, I want to give you an idea.هتA reminder, that you are a unique special snowflake and the story you are creating through your experiences deserves to be embodied.

But let me start with telling you a story

When you walk the streets of your city and really take notice of your surroundings, it invigorates you, inspires you. The architecture, the atmosphere, the people, the style and life... But then there is something else particularly charming that you can see.

Lovely old gentlemen.هت

You know, the ones that grew up back when times were hard but people looked their best. When men wore hats daily, shined their shoes and their hair, and spent the day out socializing over a cup of coffee. And now, when the world has changed completely, they... remain the same. They still spend their days out, playing chess and socializing, and they have the same look.

I didn‰غ÷t ask, but I suspect it‰غ÷s because we haven‰غھt come up with anything better than what they had all along. Touchscreen sure is handy, but in terms of style, you can‰غھt beat classic.هتBut what is even more curious, they seem to have the same actual stuff from 50 years back.هتAnd it looks magnificent.هتIs it just because vintage is trendy now? Or is it that throughout the years, spent with a human, things get better, absorbing the life of their owner, becoming something more than just an object, developing a charisma of their own?...

We want to provide you with the possibility, the inspiration, the urge to follow that example and carry a bag,which will become a part of your own design, a representation of your life and your unique story. Time Resistance bags are thoughtfully designed and crafted to serve that purpose, and to get better with age. Like friends, like wine, like you.

We wish to inspire people to see a Time Resistance bag as canvas where their unique story of experiences, achievements and adventures gets embodied."
