There are a few reasons why you should consider getting a bag from these guys instead of someone else this season. The first is that they鈥檙e made in America, right in Los Angeles. The second is that they鈥檙e following Everlane in its cut-out-the-middleman footsteps, helping save you money in the end by not having traditional retail outlets. And the third reason is our favorite: With every bag purchased, they鈥檒l聽donate 25 hours of learning to children in Africa through partnerships with the Knock Foundation and Bridge International.

If those weren鈥檛 reasons enough alone to love Stone and Cloth, we鈥檝e got one more: Their designs are beautiful, with little leather detailing聽and washed fabrics that deliver聽a worn-in look. The inspiration for this particular collection comes from everyone鈥檚 favorite mid-century wanderer, Jack Kerouac, only聽with all the modern touches you need for your busy life.

The bags also come with聽a quilted sleeve for your laptop and a 鈥渃harging vent鈥 unique to Stone and Cloth, so you can聽charge your computer while it鈥檚 in the sleeve 鈥 a detail we can鈥檛 help but think is a total game changer. There are eight styles in all, with our favorite being the rolltop tote. Hurry to Kickstarter to support them and聽get in on the exclusive chambray color, then get ready to聽start planning your fall outfits around these simple, gorgeous bags.
