1776 Company

1776 Company is a company which manufacturers handcrafted leather goods made in the USA. Their initial product offerings consist of the 1776 Company Flask and the 1776 Company Mason Jar.

Flask

The 1776 Company Flask is made with stainless steel, leak-free and twice as thick as the industry standard. It’s wrapped in American leather that is tightly hand-stitched at the spine, and uses no glue to keep the leather in place. Each flask comes in a custom box with funnel and solid repurposed Redwood tags.

Mason Jar

The 1776 Company Mason Jar is 16oz and featues a leak free cover. Like the flask, it’s wrapped in American leather that is tightly hand-stitched at the spine, and uses no glue to keep the leather in place. The leather cover can come off when the jar needs to be cleaned, but won’t during normal use.

Horween

Their leather comes from the Horween Leather Company, based in Chicago, Illinois, the company that exclusively provides leather for the National Football League footballs and provides leather for the National Basketball Association basketballs.

Additionally, 1776 is donating 10% of their total Kickstarter sales to buy toys for the Toys for Tots program. They are also sharing work space with Bullets2Bandages, a company formed by two former Navy EOD Divers.
