Please allow 1 - 7 business days for order preparation; Large personalized orders may have a longer fulfillment window.

Orders from the Almost Perfect section will ship more quickly in 1-3 business days.

Orders are shipped with USPS 1-3 day delivery and tracking is provided upon shipment. 


Please note that due to the current health crisis, USPS may experience delivery delays on some orders.

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!

The Bag I have been Looking For

I’ve been wanting to pull the trigger and purchase this bag for YEARS. After any not so great target bags that I’d buy because the price was convenient, I decided to pull the trigger. I should have done this YEARS ago!!

This bag smells amazing, is incredibly sturdy and the perfect size. I’m an Interior Designer so it’s the perfect bag to carry samples in to and from clients homes to showrooms. I look extremely sophisticated too now that I have a beautiful bag that is sturdy and won’t break! ❤️

Cannot wait to get another one.

Coldbrew Tote (medium)

I received my tote yesterday and I'm beyond excited.....it definitely exceeded my expectations! I've been looking for a tote/purse for a long time, one that is the right size and this bag & handle are perfect! I had a hard time deciding between small or medium and I'm so glad I went with the medium size. And there were so many awesome colors to choose from but I had to go with Coldbrew since my hubby & I own a coffee roastery & cafe in NH......and we have our coldbrew/nitro coldbrew canned!
Thanks Portland Leather for making such a wicked amazing & beautiful product! Cheers! ☕

Couldn’t be happier!

Honestly, I was a little nervous when I purchased but once it arrived every fear/concern was gone! I had been searching for a tote bag for a WHILE and had been to SO many places but just didn’t find the right fit! Then I found this! It’s a great quality! Perfect size! And the color is 😍.
I highly recommend this bag!

Happy Birthday to ME

I have been wanting a open top, stand up, leather bag for a few years. One that will get more personality with age, and something I am not going to put with the rest of my unused purse collection in 3 months. This bag is it! It’s beautiful!! I got the Large Classic Tote and ‘Almost Perfect’ small zipper wallet in Honey.
