What is “Almost Perfect”? 

It’s the lowest price on all of our best selling leather goods! Our artisans have very high standards. Sometimes we come across hides with more natural character marks. Other times we notice a small imperfection on a finished product such as a slight color variation or a messy stitch or two. 

When this happens, you save big!

Even on “Almost Perfect” items our quality is guaranteed! If you're not happy with your deal, send it right back according to our standard return policy.


The Leather

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.

Width: 9.5"
Depth: 3.75" 
Height: 10.5" 

Adjustable Strap Length: 21"- 40"

Please allow 1-3 business days for order preparation.

We are pleased to offer a variety of shipping options at checkout to meet your delivery needs.

Cute little bag

I was looking for a classy backpack to replace my old one for work. For health reasons, I prefer the equally distributed weight of the backpack to a handbag or crossbody. I should have been more detailed when I scanned the dimensions, because this bag is about half the size of my old one. Still, it is GORGEOUS! Well made, and large enough for personal essentials, just not work things. I couldn't find a flaw on it. The leather is easily marked with a fingernail, but that just gives the bag character. I am hoping to have it for a good while.

Perfectly Perfect

I love this bag. I’ve searched and can’t find anything that can be considered a blemish in this bag. I love it so much that I bought a second one. It’s perfect for my needs. I bought it when I switched from 13 inch tablet to a very small one (I consider this my computer bag). It fits my tablet, the accessories, and emergency lunch provisions. I really couldn’t be happier with my purchase.

Loving my backpack

I’ve been carrying my backpack 🎒 daily which isn’t like me at all. I typically change my bags often, sometimes two, three times a week. However, this has definitely become my favorite by far. Its spacious enough to carry all my essentials and then some. Yet it isn’t overly big. I’m about 5’1 and its not overwhelming by any means. Great leather, durable and looks great. I highly recommend. 😀

Impeccable!

I have purchased a few items from Portland leather & have nothing but accolades. Their products are of the highest quality and customer service is excellent. I highly recommend this company w/out reservation.

Love!!

This bag is beautiful (I ordered the color honey). The natural qualities that make it "almost perfect" give it character, which makes it perfect to me. I'm already looking forward to buying my next bag!

Perfect!

I love, love this backpack! Got it in Nutmeg. It is beautiful and smells amazing! I see no flaws; it looks perfect. This is my second Portland Leather item, and both have been fantastic. Can’t wait to order again.
