If you’ve ever gotten stumped on a question you wish you knew, you’re not alone. It's happened to many others and will happen again. That’s why we prepared this list of the top commonly asked questions you're most likely to hear from your customers.  

We believe these answers will help you get better equipped, so next time you get put on the spot you'll know exactly what to say to close that sale. Take a look below for our compiled list.

What is Rustico?
We're a team of Creators, Craftsmen and Artisans handcrafting products from only the best materials. Together, we skillfully craft timeless products from raw materials built to inspire you to step outside, explore, and create.

What does Rustico stand for?
At Rustico, we approach each job with the same resolve. Every stitch, every cut, has meaning because it sets us apart as the hard workers we are. We are the custodians of dreams & creativity. Using only the most durable and quality materials so your ideas are protected. It’s not about just getting the job done, it’s about doing it right. We make sure the best people are making our products so that the hands that use them are never failed. Take our word for it. We stand by what we make and we’re here for any issue or questions you might have.

How long has Rustico been around?
1998. If you're unfamiliar with Our Story, be sure to check it out - it's a good one! 

Tell me more about the leather you use.
We use top-grain leather that is sourced in the USA and is a byproduct of the meat industry, making it sustainableWe have six leather colors; Saddle, Buckskin, Dark Brown, Burgundy, Natural, and Black. Our most popular colors are Saddle, Dark Brown and Buckskin because their tanning is more traditional.

Why do you use the leather you do?
Our signature look is minimal, undecorated and left raw, on purpose. Rather than creating perfectly polished leathers that generate a lot of waste and pollution, ours has been left natural. It's made that way on purpose so you can leave your mark as you use it. That's the best thing about working with our leather, it only gets more attractive with time and use. Be patient. Its ruggedness and character will grow with you.  

Where are your products made?
Most of our products are made right here in Lindon, Utah. We make things where it makes sense and where we can make sure the quality is perfect. For that reason some of our bags are made by our team in Leon, Mexico and some of our binding is done in Arizona. 

What type of paper do you offer?
#70 text, felt finish, FSC certified, acid-free/archival, min. 30% post-consumer content. We’ll interpret: We love our paper, and we think you will too. Our most popular paper is a tribute to the old-world - cotton rag cream color pages. Built thick to reduce bleed through when using fountain pens, markers, and more.

What are your top sellers?
We made it easy, see our top sellers here!
