S&B was founded in 2015 by childhood friends Niklas Bandobranski and Catherine Nilson.
The idea was to create bags for everyday use, with the combined look of classic, sporty and sophisticated. Bags that could be used for work, the gym or fine dining. All day - every day.

We wanted to add a an element that also felt innovative. We searched for a material that could reflect a new generation, people of today. Knowing that our customer's lifestyle is active and vibrant, on top of the latest trends, and living in the urban mix of career and casual athletic, vegan leather and nylon was the right fit for us. The people that choose vegan leather tend to follow the healthy, dynamic and sustainable way of life - that is it right now.

Just like people are getting more aware of what they put on their plate, that trend also now goes into the wardrobe. Positive side effects are that vegan materials are more sustainable, more water resistant and their weight is less than materials made from animals. At the core of Steele & Borough is our passion for designing products with a clean look. The five models we offer today, are the results of testing 150 different versions of shapes and color combinations. For us real consistent design needs to be tested and evaluated before entering the market.

”I think every small detail of a product is equally important, and that they together can express something that is bigger than themselves, like a well playing orchestra” says product designer Niklas Bandobranski.

We have developed a line of bags with very classical shapes, but with an attitude showing over rugged dimensioned details that boost the design, and accentuate the wish to be inventive yet keep a refined mature style.

Our bags are made of a durable water repellent nylon, and well tailored vegan leather details.
All bags come with practical inside pockets, sturdy zippers with our signature zipper-pullers and elegant inside fabric with the Steele & Borough monogram pattern print.
