What makes S&P bags better than other bags out there?
Most American bag companies do not manufacture their products in the United States. Unlike industry competitors Orvis, Fjallraven, Jack Spade, Longchamp, and RRL, Sword & Plough is the only company that manufacturers entirely in the USA, not to mention our additional impact of employing veterans and reducing waste.
What do Veterans have to say about Sword & Plough?
"This is a pretty awesome idea! Having been overseas twice now and seeing the amount of material that we actually don't use and have to burn or waste across the pond it is good to see someone is actually making it useful! Can't wait to see the products! The many we have lost will never be forgotten." - SGT Clinton Villines, U.S. Army Infantryman.
What sort of repurposed gear are you using?
We incorporate tents, sleeping bag covers, uniform materials, and durable canvas and nylon fabrics into our product designs.
Where do you get your leather?
We source our leather from a tannery in Red Wing, Minnesota.
How durable are the Sword & Plough bags?
Because our bags are constructed from military grade fabrics, they are extremely durable and many are water resistant!
Will you ship internationally?
Yes, we are excited to now offer international shipping! Please place your products in the cart and 'checkout' to determine shipping charges.
Why aren't you a non-profit organization?
We've found that a for-profit social enterprise is the best way to carry out our mission. Through this model we are able to produce a larger quantity of bags at a faster pace, thereby increasing our growth and our ability to give back to veteran organizations.
Do you donate any of your profits?
Yes, we donate 10% of our yearly profits to veteran organizations like Got Your 6.
