Our U.S. sourced 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 and gently brushed leathers are among the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been removed. These marks are proof that the leather will become more beautiful with age.

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.

Please allow 1 - 4 business days for order preparation; personalized orders may have a longer fulfillment window.

Orders are shipped with USPS 1-3 business day delivery and tracking is provided upon shipment. Please note, USPS continues to experience transit delays and your order may take slightly longer to arrive.

Oh...my...goodness!

This backpack is incredible! I was wearing crossbody bags, but really wanted a backpack to evenly distribute weight. I searched for months, wanting a simple design that wasn't too big or too small and one that wasn't bulky that would lay flat on my back. Then I happened to come across Portland Leather. The minute I saw the tote backpack I knew it was the one! I'm not a leather girl, so I was a little worried it might be heavy, but to my surprise it's not and is very comfortable to wear. The craftsmanship is outstanding and the bag is truly gorgeous. I chose Coldbrew, and although in my pics the sunlight picks up slight red tones, it's a beautiful neutral rich brown. I can see why this bag is so popular. If you're on the fence, don't hesitate. You won't regret buying this backpack. I'm already considering another one in cognac.😉

Beautiful and well made bag!

I was skeptical of this bag but the reviews were great. So here I am returning the favor and writing a great review!!!! I love my bag. It is beautiful. The leather is soft and rich and it is so well constructed. I cannot say enough good things about this bag. I bought my bag in Nutmeg, but I would love to see these bags in some fun colors!!! Thank you for a great bag at a perfect price!

It’s the perfect backpack tote/purse for me. It smells amazing and is a good medium sized purse. The placement of the straps are set well and the weight is well distributed. I could carry this bag full all day. Also, the leather smells so good!
