“All my bags are hand made by me and just me! So when an order comes in, I pull down the pattern and cut out the leather/canvas, cut out the lining, and get all the hardware ready. After finishing the prep work, I sit down at my trusty sewing machine and put it all together.”
As a touring drummer in the Texas band Green River Ordinance, Denton Hunker was in need of a few good travel bags to withstand the rigors of his whereabouts. Fortunately, while in high school, Denton had learned to sew from his grandmother. Not only did this skill surely make his future wife and business partner Alicia swoon, it led to the creation of Hunker Bag Co. Now hunkered down in East Nashville, the Mesquite, Texas natives craft each and every one of their ruggedly handsome bags by hand from enduring quality materials like locally and ethically sourced Horween leather, TexWax waxed canvas and all-brass hardware. They’re designed to last a lifetime, growing in character and meaning over the years—so you can march to your own beat.< less
