The Forge Collection is designed and handcrafted at the Mother Co. studio in Calgary, Canada. We've worked tirelessly to develop technologies and processes that allow us to not only manufacture our products locally and in-house, but also deliver products at the highest quality and at an affordable price. The Forge Collection is a culmination of everything we've learned to date. It's the result of hundreds of prototypes and thousands of small ideas. We've spent countless hours designing and considering every aspect of our bags. They have come a long way since their humble beginnings. Our mission since the beginning has been to design the kinds of products that we ourselves would use every single day.
We strive to use the best materials for our bags. We use both modern technical materials and age old materials to create something truly unique. The exterior of the bag is made with an advanced acrylic canvas - a highly durable, water resistant and environmentally-friendly material.The interiors are lined with ripstop cotton — a fabric woven in a crosshatch pattern that is highly resistant to tearing and ripping. The strapping on our bags are all made with real, thick, full-grain leather that is distressed, finished and conditioned in-house.
In the event that your bag comes in contact with a spill or stain, use a cloth dampened with cool water and a small amount of hand soap (not detergent) to spot clean the affected area immediately.
We meticulously design all of our products to withstand the rigours of everyday usage. We use the finest materials and thoroughly test every aspect of our products for strength and durability. We do everything we can to create the finest bags possible, which is why we offer a lifetime warranty on our products. If you believe your bag is subject to a manufacturer error or defect, please get in touch with us and we will either replace or repair your bag at no cost. Our lifetime warranty does not cover damage due to normal wear and tear. Normal wear and tear includes but is not limited to: spills or stains, abrasions, misuse, UV damage, burns, creases, rips, tears, abrasions, scratches, neglect, broken or torn strapping. We do everything we can to stand behind our products. So even if your bag fails due to normal wear and tear, or if you encounter any unforeseen issues, please get in touch with us and we will try to help you as best we can.
Mother Co. products can be returned or exchanged up to 30 days after date of purchase for a full refund, providing the item is in its original condition, with tags still attached. If you would like to make a return let us know and we will send you a pre-paid shipping label. Once we receive the return and confirm the condition we will exchange it or issue a full refund less the return shipping.
