What is “Almost Perfect”? 

It’s the lowest price on all of our best selling leather goods! Our artisans have very high standards. Sometimes we come across hides with more natural character marks. Other times we notice a small imperfection on a finished product such as a slight color variation or a messy stitch or two. 

When this happens, you save big!

No coupon needed! The maximum discount has already been applied to all items in the Almost Perfect Sale section.

Even on “Almost Perfect” items our quality is guaranteed! If you're not happy with your deal, send it right back according to our standard return policy.


The Leather

Our U.S.-sourced oil tanned leather is incredibly easy to care for. With time and use, the natural oils in the leather will rise to the surface, developing a beautiful patina and smoothing any scuffs or scratches that may have accumulated. Learn more about caring for your new leather product.

Our full-grain leather is the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been sanded, cut or shaved off. Full-grain is SIX times stronger than Buffed, Upholstery or Genuine leather. 

Please note that our pebbled leather, like all of our leather, is a natural product. You may notice changes in grain or texture throughout your bag. Other companies artificially press a pebble texture into their leather, but the pebbling of our leather is achieved naturally through an extra tumbling process which leaves some areas of the hide smoother than others.

Top Opening Width: 14"
Depth: 5.5" 
Height: 11" 

Adjustable Strap Length: 28"- 35"

Wasn't sure if this style would suit me but I am loving it so far. I wish the snap was a bit more magnetic since I'm a little afraid to leave it undone but I think I can live with it.

Love my bucket backpack!

I have a PLG XL tote & mini crossbody, and I wanted to add a backpack to my collection… I love this Bucket Backpack! I bought it in pebbled black. It’s a great in between size and a good alternative if I don’t feel like using my shoulder and crossbody bags. It fits my every day necessities (toiletry bag, wallet, phone, mints, keys, sunglass case, Kindle, snacks). It doesn’t feel heavy like the tote and crossbody can feel like since it uses two shoulders and back to carry the weight, and its size makes it easy to stash away in work desk drawer and to hang up in car, etc. without taking so much space. I thought it would be too small for my needs since I can easily pack-up the tote, but it hasn’t disappointed. I’m also able to personalize the tote with tassels to add some flair depending on the outfit of choice. Easily my go-to choice no matter the season or event.

This is my new favorite backpack!

Although the Sangria color is sadly discontinued, I got one of the last of these backpacks before they sold out. This backpack might look like it's on the smaller size, but you can definitely stuff it full. The straps are a generous length, there's an inside pocket, the drawstring is pretty smooth, and the flap closure is magnetic. I'm loving the pebbling on mine, especially on the flap which is half-pebbled and half-smooth leather. Mine was from the AP line, and I don't see any flaws or imperfections. If you're like me and you overthink about purchases, stop thinking and buy it, totally worth it.

Got it for a trip, and now use it all the time

What a cute bag. It was perfect for a purse/day bag on a trip. The front inner pocket on the flap was a nice surprise, and I tucked my passport there. It’s quickly becoming a go to bag for everyday.

Love it!

Perfect everyday bag! It’s great for someone with back issues as it distributes the weight evenly across your back. I can fit my kindle inside of it with my baggu sleeve, my mini envelope wallet, iPhone 12 Pro and taco tassel pouch with room to spare for snacks!

It’s A Beautiful Green!

I tried to talk myself out of this backpack. I told myself that even if I did get it, another color was more practical; but the heart wants what it wants and I finally gave in and bought the Eucalyptus that I yearned for. I’m so glad I did! I wore it just yesterday when I took 2 of my grandkids to the Science Museum. With a 4 and 6 year old it was great to be hands free and able to grab them at a moment’s notice. Plenty of room for handi wipes and other essentials too. I’m finding this green goes with so much. A great purchase!
