Q&A with Sam Payrovi of Saintly Bags

“A former bond trader on Wall Street, Sam Payrovi knows that having a successful career doesn’t mean giving up having adventures.

I couldn’t be happier with my Saintly All American.

I have been searching for the perfect bag for years, As an avid traveler, a self proclaimed adventure capitalist, I needed something that would last, that looked great, and most importantly, something personal. All my experiences, all my travels, carry a deep meaning to me. It was extremely important that I had more than just a bag. I wanted something unique. When I first came across Saintly, I knew I found exactly what I was looking for. The attention to detail, the story behind the brand, the ability to completely customize my new travel companion made the experience that much more greater. I will carry my All American proudly with me on all my travels, spreading the ideals and values of the brand I’ve grown so fond of. Life is adventure. Be prepared.

My Saintly custom bag is awesome.

I do many 3 and 4 day trips all over the US and Europe for work and personal. My Saintly custom bag is awesome and I get many compliments on it. It’s a perfect compliment with a suite and tie or jeans and t-shirt for travel!

Definitely worth the money.

I ordered the Weekender edition in black with burnt orange interior and nickel hardware with rush delivery as I needed it before some upcoming travel. The bag turned out just as I ordered and right on time. The quality of this bag is amazing – definitely worth the money – and something you would see at twice the price. The fact that I was able to customize it to my specifics was great. Don’t hesitate – get one now, you won’t regret it. Customer service was great too – I had confirmation and follow-up almost immediately.

Can’t wait to get one for myself.

I purchased a bag for my husband, knowing that he would love the high quality leather.  The added bonus of being able to customize and add pockets was a huge selling point because he travels a lot and hates having his shoes and dirty clothes in the same compartment as his clean clothes. When the bag arrived, the quality of the craftsmanship far exceeded our expectations because it was obvious that a great deal of time and attention went into constructing the bag.  And the fact that it is made in NYC as opposed to a far away place with questionable labor practices makes me proud to own such a unique, stylish bag.  Thank you Saintly for this one-of-a kind bag! Can’t wait to get one for myself.

Truly a piece of art.

Harkens back to the days when travel was both elegant and sophisticated.  Durable enough to replace my long-haul business luggage, stylish enough to bring to any 5-star resort or beach bungalow.  Looks better with each passing mile…
