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.

SMALL: Great for those that travel light on the daily – it can fit a water bottle, snacks, book, wallet, and sunglasses comfortably. Measures 10” wide across the base, 13” wide across the top, 4.5” deep and 11.5” tall. 

MEDIUM: Can fit a water bottle, snacks, a book, wallet, snacks, sunglasses and a 13” Macbook snugly. Measured 10.5” wide across the base, 15” wide across the top, 5.5” deep, and 12” tall. 

LARGE: Fits a water bottle, snacks, book, wallet, sunglasses, back-up shirt, and a 15” Macbook snugly. Measures 11” wide across the base, 18” wide across the top, 6” deep, and 12” tall.

OVERSIZED: Fits all that plus a pair of jeans and a larger laptop comfortably. Measures 13” wide across the base, 21” wide across the top, 6” deep, and 13” tall. 

The drop length for all of our handles is 11” regardless of the size of the tote, and suits most!

INSIDE & OUTSIDE POCKET: All totes have an inside pocket that measures approximately 6” x 8” – great for a smartphone and some lip balm, as well as an outside pocket for easy storage.

KEY LOOP: A standard feature of all totes – no more digging around for your keys! 

FULL-GRAIN LEATHER: Our leather is the highest quality full-grain chap and English bridle leather available. We only use US hides and since American leather is a byproduct of the beef industry, we like to think that we're helping to minimize waste by using hides that may otherwise be wasted. This kind of leather will never look flawless, as it hasn't been covered in any kind of plastic coating. Don’t worry about keeping the tote perfect - the best part about 100% full-grain leather is that it just gets better with age.

UNLINED AND OPEN INTERIOR: Our Tote Bags are unlined, featuring the natural suede underside of the leather on the inside. We use full-grain, oil-tanned leather that is incredibly durable and water tight – it's the same quality of leather that is used in making boots, saddles, and all manner of made-to-last, all-weather leather goods!

In order to keep up with production, we are not able to offer customizations on our designs – sorry about that! We think you’ll love our items as they are!

Beautiful Bag

I purchased the Medium sized Grey Almost Perfect Tote Bag. It is a beautiful bag with great craftsmanship. I could see the marks that made it “almost perfect” but this type of leather is so quick to “scuff” anyway that the bag is not perfect for long. All the genuine marks just give it character and I am already looking forward to the day when I get to order a second one. It took in total about 11 days to receive my bag from the day I ordered it.

Almost Perfect Cognac Tote is perfect !!!

I purchased my tote not knowing what to expect . I simply fell in love with it . The color the feeland the craftsmanship ... hands down great. I am looking forward to purchasing another in the near future .
I do wish there was a little strap to hold on to a wallet, keys or mask.

Gorgeous Tote

I purchased the oversized Tote and wallet in Honey, and it's gorgeous! Of all the high-end leather totes I've purchased, this is my favorite by a long shot. It's sturdy, quality and beautiful in color. I carry my laptop, note books and wallet with plenty of space to spare. If you want a quality leather bag...THIS IS IT!

Amazing!!!

This bag is amazing. The quality and craftsmanship is beautiful. I ordered the ‘almost perfect’ XL Tote in the canyon color but I can not find anything wrong with it... it’s perfect and exactly what I was expecting. I use it for school and put a lot of weight in there - The handles and seams are holding up just fine. I absolutely love it and will likely be a repeat customer in the future.

Almost perfect tote

Beautiful cool looking bag, with nice thick leather. I shopped around and these seemed to be the best and I have really enjoyed it. I really like the two tone strap and bag. I have been waiting many years to buy myself a good leather purse and this is the one.

So In Love!!!

I agonized over my next bag purchase. My husband kept dumping my purse out to find the keys because his hand didn’t fit in the small compartments. Needless to say, we are BOTH extremely happy with this new bag? Love, love, love the Cognac color!

Perfect AP, great customer service

After months of reading reviews and debating, I finally ordered an 'almost perfect' nutmeg medium tote. I waited anxiously for it to arrive, and when it did a short time after I ordered, I was hit in the face with the delicious smell of leather upon opening the box. It's absolutely gorgeous--I love pebbled leather but this is the softest and most supple I've come across. It's assembled beautifully, and I cannot figure out why it is 'almost perfect.' I did initially wonder if I should have ordered the large tote rather than the medium even though all of my stuff fits in the medium quite nicely.... I just tend to prefer larger bags. So, I emailed customer service and explained the situation, and they sent the kindness and most thorough response as to how to exchange the bag for a larger size. In the end, I decided to keep it because it is so gorgeous and the size really is practical (I carry a large wallet, a makeup bag, and a thick 8x4 notebook in there, along with other odds and ends, and there's still room for my large water bottle). I think my next purchase will be an oversized for when I know I will also be carrying some of the kids' stuff with me.

If you are on the fence about a bag, do it! You will be glad you did.

The Perfect "Almost Perfect" Tote

Absolutely love it! I ordered the "Almost Perfect" Medium Tote in merlot. It came in a reasonable amount of time, considering I ordered it during the holidays. When it arrived and I opened the box, I could immediately smell the leather...real leather. That has not been the case with other leather bags that I own. The fact that it was sold as "almost perfect" has me baffled because I couldn't fine anything wrong with it! The color is just as advertised. I would call it a deep burgundy almost. The drop on the straps is the perfect length for me with the bottom of the tote hitting me right above my hip. I love the fact that it is soft - not stiff, but still holds its shape (as shown in the photo below) when off of the shoulder. I had recently ordered another purse from a major purse designing company and loved the style, but the leather was so stiff, I had a difficult time putting items in and getting items out. That is so not true with this tote. I am incredibly pleased with this tote and will be back for more! -bev
