In 2010 chef Ali Loukzada was visiting Mumbai, India and stopped by the leather store to get a belt made which he had purchased at the very same place in 1999 when he first came to the USA.
As he was going through the leather for his new belt, he had an idea of something that he had never thought of or seen before- so he took a piece of paper and started sketching his first knife bag the 17 pocket full leather knife bag.
At the time Ali was a sous chef at Buddakan in N.Y.C and returned to work with a leather knife bag and although the first bag had a few flaws, it seemed to work well and other chefs started showing their interest. He created a few more bags with minor adjustments and that's where Ali knew he was on to something and the company was born!
