Who We Are

We Love People and...

People Love our bags!

Before Portland Leather Goods, you couldn’t find a simply designed, affordable bag made from quality leather. If it was simply designed and affordable, the leather felt and looked cheap, or worse, it wasn’t even real leather! In order to get a simple real leather bag, you had to spend a fortune.

We make the leather bag everyone already knows they want but can't seem to find at a price they can feel good about.

It’s no wonder we have accrued over 210,000 five-star reviews in the last six years and more than a third of those who buy our products are returning customers coming back again and again. Our following is cult-like. Customers can’t believe the quality, they can’t believe the price, and many can’t seem to stop themselves from ordering more and more of our products.

Sustainable & Eco-friendly

We only Use the Best Leather in the World

We source our hides from the U.S. beef industry, ensuring that materials that would otherwise go to waste can have a second life. Those hides are tanned in award-winning facilities that not only meet, but continually redefine the standard for eco-forward practices in the field.

Real cows lead real lives. In order to provide bags with that real leather feel, glow, and smell, you have to start with cowhides that are not synthetically coated or painted over. This is why marks like spots and scratches are a badge of honor on our bags. Without them, there is no way the leather could look and feel so good and last as long.

Community Building

Our Artisan Studio

We own and operate our artisan workshop, The Studio, located in the heart of León, Mexico, mere blocks away from the two most award-winning tanneries in North America. Location, as they say, is everything! Not only does our close proximity reduce our environmental impact, it fosters the kind of community feel and relationship building we value so much.

Our business is about people. From design to production, from customer service to our amazing customers, we have some of the best.

In order to run our workshop in León, we have to have the best people, and we do. The Studio wouldn’t be possible without our friendship and daily communication with Studio Director, Fabian Cornu and Director of Mexico Operations, Adriana Cruz.
