How do i look after my bag?

Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather bag.

Always wash your hands before caring for leather - oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend taking a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth and briskly sweeping the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year to prevent your bag becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often. Simply apply the cream to the entire bag with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using this all natural leather cream for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your bag can have a good, long life.

Can I get it monogrammed?

At this time, we do not provide monogramming or embossing services. However, all our bags can be monogrammed by most leather working dealers. We recommend taking our bags to your local dealer for more information.

Can I get it wet?

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather bag. We know this is not always possible, so if your bag does get wet, here's what you do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth as quickly as you're able to.

Caught in a rainstorm? Be sure to let your leather bag completely air dry and do not use a heat source to speed up the drying (this can damage the leather). Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape and absorb moisture from the inside.

Will my Bag Smell Bad When I get it?

As this bag is made from real leather, it is likely to emit a strong, natural leather smell when you first receive it. This will fade over time.

Should this smell not be to your liking, we recommend airing out your bag in a cool, dry climate for 48 hours.

Can this leather bag be made with custom dimensions?

We are able to make some leather bags in our collection with custom dimensions.

If you are interested in this service, please contact us, providing the model requested and the desired dimensions. If this is currently possible, we will then provide a quote.

Please note that any custom bags ordered this way are strictly made-to-order, so will take a little longer to get to you and will be more expensive than the similar model on our site. All custom orders are final and returns cannot be accepted.

Outstanding!

The bag is gorgeous! Pictures don’t do it justice. The leather and color are beautiful. Amazing quality and great size. The pockets and inside compartments are roomy and perfect to fit more than what you need!! The strap and handles are durable. My husband loves it! The company also has incredible customer service, and shipping was so fast.

Thanks Mary! That's wonderful to read. We're so glad you're enjoying your new bag.

Birthday gift for my husband

He loves his new bag, fits everything he needs for traveling with it and the leather is gorgeous, had it monogrammed for him at a local place and they went on and on about the quality of the leather.

That's amazing to hear thanks Jennifer!

Front pockets are very ugly

Front pockets are very ugly. Colors are a bit too loud as well

Thanks for taking the time to leave a review Bogdan. We're sorry to hear this bag wasn't the right style for what you were looking for. Please reach out to our team and we'd be happy to help you with an exchange or return.

Great quality; roomy; comfortable

This is perfect; I needed something with a little more space than my existing messenger bag. This one is beautiful and easily fits my laptop, notebook, a few books and other necessities. I did use the leather conditioner when it arrived and it looks terrific. I am actually surprised that for having a rather thin shoulder strap, it's really comfortable to carry. I particularly like the magnetic flap over the two large pockets on the front. When I travel I don't want to have to unbuckle/buckle sections, so the magnetic flap is convenient.

Thanks Jo, that's wonderful to read!
