About


Paul in Lineage shop
Born from a passion for craft, Lineage was started by Paul Hansbarger and is based in Harrisonburg, Virginia.
The story of Lineage began with a simple request from my then pregnant wife for a diaper bag for our soon to be born daughter. Since then, more designs have come together, constantly refining and redesigning, while family and friends have asked for a bag of their own.
The idea behind Lineage was a return to roots, to work with my hands to create simple, stylish, and durable bags and accessories for utility and everyday use. To craft useful products with the best materials possible, cut and sewn in the USA  and ultimately, that could stand the rigors of everyday life and be passed on to our children.
Lineage bags and accessories are designed, cut, sewn, hammered, punched, and riveted one at a time in our Harrisonburg, Virginia workshop using hand tools and industrial sewing machines. 

Materials
Lineage uses waxed cotton canvas and water repellent canvas from Fairfield Textiles in Bridgeton, NJ, and vegetable tanned leather from Hermann Oak Leather Co. in St. Louis, MO and Wickett & Craig in Curwensville, Pennsylvania. Both waxed canvas and vegetable tanned leather will take on a patina, soften and darken over time with everyday use. This is all part of the story of your bag and where its been.
