I am a one-woman show currently out of Reno, NV. I have been making vegan friendly goods for 5+ years. I started Black Sage to offer heavy duty, utilitarian items without the use of leather, wool, or animal based waxes commonly used. Most of my items are constructed of waxed canvas. The canvas is coated in food and pharmaceutical grade waxes and is completely non-hazardous. It is environmentally friendly, vegan, and made in the USA. :)
