About Us


Directive was founded in late 2012 with a small collection of one of a kind hand painted canvas bags for women. Directive has developed into a leather accessories line focusing on clean lines and shapes, solid construction, and hard wearing materials with products for men and women. Directive introduces hand painted canvas prints and limited edition styles seasonally, with classic styles always available.  Every piece is made in Milwaukee using leather and finishings sourced from decades old Milwaukee-based manufacturers. Directive currently operates as a one-woman business with goals to build a small workshop and team to continue to produce fine leathergoods.
