Truce builds resilient, fashionable and environmentally responsible bags and accessories. Crafted with reclaimed and high-performance materials, each Truce bag is unique and made when ordered. 
Luke learned to sew industrial-grade fabrics while repairing sails and making boat covers at North Sails Oregon. There he discovered the loft’s scrap bin, his first source of materials for crafting bags and accessories for his friends and family. Luke’s belief in environmentally responsible design and manufacturing led him to create Truce, a small collection of high-performance bags crafted from reclaimed materials.
Over the years, Luke has built up a supply chain of high-performance materials that would have been discarded. Old sailcloths and drysuit fabrics are common among the industrial-grade fabrics repurposed to construct Truce bags. Each textile has a history, and a story to tell. Some spent years voyaging open waters, other fabrics are repurposed from the factory floor before it ever reaches a customer’s hands. Some of the most interesting fabrics we get our hands on are high-end textiles produced in small lots, that haven’t yet made their way to the larger manufacturers.
All of the textiles we reclaim are inspected and cleaned before being put through our machines. One textile may be a resource for multiple bags, but as you can imagine, no two bags are alike.
