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!

No coupon needed & cannot be used on "Almost Perfect" items as our largest discount has already been applied just for you!

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.

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, 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 10.5” 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!

Beautiful!

I read all the reviews and was hesitant that these products could be as perfect as all were describing them. Well, they definitely ARE PERFECT! I cannot see any defect that would make it “almost perfect”, it is just beautiful. I love the honey color and it stands up without sloping over. Also, I purchased the largest size made. I was concerned it might be too big when I was shopping online, but it’s actually the perfect size if you are looking for a “tote”. I LOVE THIS BAG!

are you sure you sent me the right purse?

I was worried about buying an "Almost Perfect" purse, would it be noticable would it be super flawed. Well I think they made a mistake and sent me a perfect purse because i cannot find the imperfection. I am so happy with my purchase I will be buying from them again. Thank you for the excellent purse!
