Dave Munson lives the quintessential American dream: A wife, two kids, a home in Texas, and the owner of a wildly successful small business. But he says he’s just an ordinary guy doing what he loves…and what he loves is running a company that makes ridiculously high quality leather bags.
While working as a volunteer English teacher in Mexico, Munson discovered a need for the perfect bag: One that wouldn’t tear, one whose zippers or buttons wouldn’t break, and one that could withstand a beating or two. Munson never could have known that stumbling into a small leather goods shop would change his life. The man whom he met there crafted Munson’s vision for an ideal bag. Once he received that bag, Munson knew he had to share it with the world. He took it back to the U.S., and is not exaggerating when he says he got three or four complements on the bag every day – and the more he carried it, the more people wanted to know where they could get one of their own.
Today Dave’s company employs close to 300 people and has come to be known as one of the premier brands in its industry.
