Our U.S.-sourced oil tanned 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 leather is the strongest and most durable available, and the unique texture and natural imperfections from the cow’s life have not been sanded, cut or shaved off. Full-grain is SIX times stronger than Buffed, Upholstery or Genuine leather. 

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.

SMALL: Great for those that travel light on the daily – it can fit a water bottle, snacks, book, wallet, and sunglasses comfortably. Measures 10” wide across the base, 13” wide across the top, 4.5” deep and 11.5” tall. 

MEDIUM: Can fit a water bottle, snacks, a book, wallet, snacks, sunglasses and a 13” Macbook snugly. Measured 10.5” wide across the base, 15” wide across the top, 5.5” deep, and 12” tall. 

LARGE: Fits a water bottle, snacks, book, wallet, sunglasses, back-up shirt, and a 15” Macbook snugly. Measures 11” wide across the base, 18” wide across the top, 6” deep, and 12” tall.

OVERSIZED: Fits all that plus a pair of jeans and a larger laptop comfortably. Measures 13.5” wide across the base, 21” wide across the top, 6” deep, and 13” tall. 

The drop length for all of our handles is 11” regardless of the size of the tote, and suits most!

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!

Just Perfect!y

I have been looking at this bag for some time and finally pulled the trigger. I wanted an all leather bag that would hold up for years and I feel I have kind it. I love the honey color with the darker straps. It’s just so pretty. Think my next purchase will be the cross body bag in the same color.

It is Almost Perfect

I got the large Almost Perfect Oxblood classic tote. I was worried it would be more brown, but it is definitely red. I am a technology teacher that is doing both remote and in-person teaching; the bag easily carries a laptop, two iPads, my wallet, a smaller bag to contain small stuff, and my coffee tumbler, with more room to spare. I did not find any thing on the bag that made it less than perfect; there were no marks, nicks, scratches, etc. My only issue with the bag is when I have all these items in the bag, it makes it harder for the straps to stay together on my shoulders. I wish the straps were just a couple of inches longer, or maybe had a longer strap, then it would definitely be perfect. Next time, I will order one of the Crossbody Totes. Shipping was quick and easy.

‘Almost Perfect’ Classic Tote

The ONLY word that SHOULD NOT be the the description of the tote I purchased is ‘ALMOST’.... the tote is prefect, beautiful and beautiful extremely well crafted!! If there is a scratch, mar or anything not quite right about it, I’ve not seen it!! Totally LOVE my new bag and am looking to purchase a new leather purse and makeup bag from The Portland Leather Goods Company!
They now have a life time customer.

Got an “Almost Perfect” classic tote size small in Grizzly. Not sure what the imperfection is because I have no complaints! Perfect size for my every day bag and it smells delightful! Went back and ordered a makeup bag to put inside as well!

Beautiful Bag

I purchased the Medium sized Grey Almost Perfect Tote Bag. It is a beautiful bag with great craftsmanship. I could see the marks that made it “almost perfect” but this type of leather is so quick to “scuff” anyway that the bag is not perfect for long. All the genuine marks just give it character and I am already looking forward to the day when I get to order a second one. It took in total about 11 days to receive my bag from the day I ordered it.

I purchased my tote not knowing what to expect . I simply fell in love with it . The color the feeland the craftsmanship ... hands down great. I am looking forward to purchasing another in the near future .
I do wish there was a little strap to hold on to a wallet, keys or mask.
