"This is a great bag. Very roomy. The service I got was first rate. One word of caution: you need to understand they way this bag is designed in order to love it as I do. For instance, if you want to carry it like a briefcase, you must use the magnets. In order for the zipper to work easily, it must be outside of the bag (I tuck mine under the very convenient loop). I'm accustomed to carrying a backpack, and I haven't had to sacrifice the benefits backpacks offer (I am totally addicted to "hands-free"). I really cannot emphasize enough how happy I am with my purchase. Plus, I think it is just too cool that the company names its products for literary works. I do not know of any other manufacturer that does that, so they get top marks for marketing. Money was never better spent."

The packaging was beautiful and showed the real and delicate care that Time Resistance put into their items. The certificate and care instructions were such a thoughtful touch.The bag is unbelievable. Absolutely fantastic quality in all elements of the bag. It easily fits everything I need in to it and with the backpack option, it allows me to choose what is most comfortable. If you are ever looking for a quality bag, you need not search anywhere else!"

"Beautiful well made bag. It came quickly and I love it -- perfect for carrying my laptop, paperwork and personal items. Would happily buy from this seller again."

"This bag is absolutely beautiful. The quality is better than a high end LV. Roomy, well made, high end leather. Delivery was extremely fast as well. Very happy!"


"Outstanding leather goods at a very reasonable price...I was most impressed with the customer service for all the right reasons...that alone earns 5 stars....highly recommend this shop!"

"Well constructed, beautifully stitched. This bag is made to last and pass to a new generation. It evokes memories of older times and older values. Love this, it was worth every penny."


"It is a lovely bag and just what my husband was looking for. The shop owner was a delight to work with; quick to respond to my email regarding an address correction needed. The item was shipped promptly and arrived in 10 days, much less time than I anticipated it would take. Good experience and very pleased with all aspects of the transaction."

-Laurie Bullock

"Hmmm, where do I begin. I can go on & on, but I'll keep it short. This bag is very sharp. Beautiful leather and well constructed. A tad heavy, when I load it down w/(either my Samsung tab A10.1 or tab S8.4, organizer, power banks, headphones, extra battery, cables, etc.) Plus pens, and other needed nic nacs, but I love it! I'm very confident it will hold up and age gracefully, for years to come, for sure... I see those eyes, checkin it out when I'm out n about, LOL."


"Mi ̬ piaciuto subito questo articolo, ed ̬ fatta veramente bene qusta borsa in pelle dettagli curati e ha anche un odore fantastico."

-Davide Buratti

"Absolutely stunning bag - my husband loves it! Type 1 diabetic - it fits all he needs for a day out along with his ipad and phone. The leather and craftsmanship is beautiful. Really knows how to tell a story, as well! The bag it comes in along with the tag - very impressive. The only weird thing - I thought this was handmade by the seller, however the tags inside say made in Italy. Of course, Italy has a rep for excellent quality so no complaints here!"

-Michele Kropp

"First and foremost, I want to give you an idea.A 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.

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't ask, but I suspect it's because we haven't come up with anything better than what they had all along. Touchscreen sure is handy, but in terms of style, you can't beat classic.But what is even more curious, they seem to have the same actual stuff from 50 years back.And it looks magnificent.Is 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."
