Timelessness From Herds Of The Fathers

April 14th, 2011

In these days of ever changing trends, Tobi Babajide and Jason Akoi have a vision of providing ‘timeless leather goods for the ever changing gentleman’. They are achieving this vision through their company Herds of the Fathers. Although there are plans to incorporate more products, their current main products are backpacks, mini backpacks, and duffel bags, all in leather. Leather signifies class, quality, durability, and timelessness. These are some of the qualities that are not only showcased in their products, but in the values and brand of the company itself.

Herds of the Fathers preaches a powerful message- one of timelessness and individuality. Their goal is to encourage others to create their own style using classic pieces that will stand the test of time, and not be influenced by fickle fads that come with a bang and slowly fade away. They dare you to be different; to create and stand out.
Although these products are targeted at gentlemen, I can see ladies sporting them too. I actually first heard about this company via That Good Good Blog and now I’m happily spreading their message. (Yes, this is the second time I’m poaching from that blog but what do you expect, it’s got that Good Good!).Actually, when it comes down to it, Herds of the Fathers is not really about products, it’s about a lifestyle. Please check out their products from their store (see more products here), get a more personal feel of them at their blog, or contact them here. You can follow them on Twitter too.

    Ehh 2nd comment

    Where's my prize.
    Meanwhile these guys you profiled have some great looking products. Quite masculine though or should I say business looking. but looks solid.

    Between them and Gidan I think Nigerians can happily ignore the overpriced Burberry bags of this world…
