Forty Knots No Smoke

Founded in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 2015, Forty Knots No Smoke is a one-man bag and accessories line built around the buy-it-once mentality. Blending the classic American aesthetic with European leather working techniques, our products strive to establish a new definition of quality goods. The Automat’s Zachary Kiernan was hired to develop custom branding and packaging to support the amazing craftsmanship of these products. Throughout this process we wanted to highlight a number of the craftsman’s tools in the vintage motifs of this old world craft. Deliverables included stamp designs, custom repeating tape pattern, and brand logos.
