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.

Another Beautiful Bag! Too bad it wasn’t as pictured.

I’ve been wanting a black backpack purse for a while, and when I saw y’all came out with the pebble black with the silver tone hardware I was in love!

The only thing I wish I had know was the hardware was not silvertone as pictured, but brass. Keeping the bag, as it is my third from y’all, but would have probably ordered another color if I had known the hardware was brass.

Favorite Backpack Purse!!!!

I love this bag so much. It’s the perfect size! I can fit everything I need for myself and still have room to throw a fee things in for my husband or kiddos. I prefer the tote backpack in pebbled leather for sure, the slouch it has is just wonderful!!!! I was afraid to order this bag initially, as I am a larger plus size woman. And I was concerned it would not fit comfortably on my back or look right, but happy to say it’s been wonderful. I do wish the straps were maybe 2 inches longer. Just for a bit of extra wiggle room, but obviously that isn’t a deal breaker because I’ve carried this bag daily since receiving it. Super happy it comes in black pebbled now too!!!

Beautiful bag!

This bag smells heavenly right out of the box! The leather smells wonderful, feels so soft and keeps a good form. I got the pebbled leather and I love it. Plenty of room. The zippers are smooth and easy to use. Absolutely love it.

Backpack for grown-ups.

I really like everything about this beautiful backpack. The feel and quality is on point. Just the perfect size for all my necessities. Now I don't have to put everything into my purse or tote bag. I like how this bag was made and you can really smell the new leather smell that speaks volumes IMO. Worth the price arrived fast and in excellent condition. This is my second purchase from Portland and I plan on coming back soon. The Holidays are coming..hint hint.

Amazing!

I’m absolutely in love with my leather tote backpack in cognac! Fits everything I need to carry on the daily, straps are adjustable. I’ve gotten tons of compliments from friends, family and co workers! Definitely will be buying another bag

Very very nice. But I’d like it to be a wider top.

Wow. Great craftsmanship and beautiful leather. And of course the smell. I am super happy with my purchase. I love the cold brew color. Soft yet still has some structure. Dark enough to go with black but versatile too being brown.
I do wish,for how deep the bag is, the top would be a bit wider in order to see in and reach things well. But overall I am loving my new backpack! With three little boys I have to have my hands free but carry all the necessities. This more than does the job. I’ve already recommended this brand to my friends who’ve noticed and admired my new pouch ☺️
