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.

Perfect!

I recently purchased the smaller and the larger tote backpacks. The leather is stunning the right thickness to last generation without being to heavy and so supple. This leather is going to age very well. Some how the craftsmanship looks excessively strong and classy at the same time.
I have a bit of a fetish for caramel, whiskey and buffalo brown totes and hobo bags. My previous bags have been a wide range of costs. These two Portland Leather bags are at the higher end of quality and more reasonable end of price. I’ll purchase from them again.

Love My Tote Backpacks!

I love my new backpacks! I initially purchased the Cognac color, which is a beautiful, rich brown color, and it is very elegant. The quality of the leather and zippers is superb. The leather is thick, smooth, and smells exquisite. The zippers slide easily; no need to tug or maneuver them when opening or closing. I couldn’t resist a Tote Backpack in Honey after I ordered the Honey wallet with the Cognac Tote Backpack. I also asked my husband to purchase the Mini Crossbody for me in Honey for our anniversary. All of the items are well made and seem very durable. I will continue to purchase from PLG!

A perfect on-the-go, hands-free “tote”

I absolutely love the Tote Backpack! I am a mother of two young children and this backpack has been the perfect bag to carry since I need my hands/arms to hold littles, open snacks, play on the playground etc. The zippers are buttery smooth (different than those on the actual tote handbags from PLG). It’s comfortable and can hold a ton.

In the main compartment I currently have a pouch that holds some baby wipes, a disposable diaper pad and 2 diapers, a sunglass case, a small pouch that holds medical necessities (bandaids, Tylenol, bacitracin, mini flash light, mini Swiss Army knife), a small card case, a journal, another pouch to hold receipts, a pouch for tech stuff, a pouch for my house/mail key, lip moisturizer and a wallet...and there’s still more room for other things if I need it (like a spare set of clothes for the kids, snacks or a water bottle). In the front exterior pocket I have 2 packs of tissues, ear buds, hand sanitizer, pouch with hair ties, roller ball EO perfume, arm&hammer bags and a pouch that holds a few masks. As you can see this backpack is deceiving. It has slim and sleek look but can still carry all of your necessities and more! (The one pictured is in the Cognac color).

FAVORITE BAG EVER

This is my new favorite bag to use as a purse!! Whether high-end brand or not, I have never been able to find a purse that I truly loved. I also easily get shoulder/neck pain from carrying around purses and even crossbody bags which is why I chose to try the tote backpack. It is the perfect size to fit everything I carry around daily and more! And most importantly, I don’t get any shoulder/neck pain from carrying it! I got the honey color and it is absolutely stunning, you can’t go wrong with this timeless color. Can’t recommend enough…already gotten tons of compliments on my bag!
