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!

These top-selling leather goods are in limited supply and ready-to-ship so they can be at your door in just a few days. No coupon needed & cannot be used on "Almost Perfect" items as our largest discount has already been applied just for you!

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.

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, 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 13.5” wide across the base, 21” wide across the top, 6” deep, and 13” tall. 

The drop length for all of our handles is 10.5” 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!

Simple, classy and timeless

My new favorite! Medium classic tote in cognac. I put my LV neverfuls on break because I am obsessed with these. They are perfect in every way. I currently own 1 medium cognac classic tote , 1 medium merlot, 1 medium nutmeg zipped and 1 small honey classic tote. Still waiting for black with tan handles to be back in stock. Hopefully soon.

The Perfect Tote!

I purchased a Large ‘Almost Perfect’ Classic Tote in the color Coldbrew. It’s absolutely gorgeous. The smell escaping from the box when I pulled it out, was intoxicating. The soft but structured leather is perfection. The inner and outer pocket and key loop are simple details, but essential for a tote. The size of the shoulder straps was key for me. I have larger arms and wanted to be able to slide the bag on and off easily. The shoulder straps are literally the perfect size and rather sturdy. I love the idea of growing with this bag and seeing how the leather transforms. The coldbrew color is the perfect combination of black and brown, while definitely being on the more brown side. I was on the fence between the Cognac and coldbrew and ultimately decided on coldbrew. I’m knocking down a star based on size. Dimensions are listed, but im more of a visual person. While I ordered the large and it’s great, but seeing it in person…I probably would have gotten the oversized. While watching the video of the model passing each size tote, it would be helpful to see different sized bodies with each size as well. It’s a gorgeous bag and overall, I am so glad I made the purchase. I might look at a wallet to match…

This bag is everything! The almost perfect is perfect. The leather is so thick and sturdy feeling yet has the perfect slouch. I’m so glad I was recommended this brand. This is the first of many purchases to come!

I was looking for a cute tote that will last a while. I bought the classic tote in medium and it is the perfect size for my laptop, wallet, water bottle, and a few other small items. The straps are good length to go over my shoulder securely. And the quality of leather is amazing!
