The perfect combination of art, utility, and craft, each of our Medium Leather Messenger Bags is made to order and one-of-a-kind. Featuring our signature “live edge” on the front flap and interior pocket, each bag uses almost an entire side of leather with the unique shape of the side inspiring the design of each individual bag.
Made from smooth and durable natural vegetable tanned leather, and rich Olive Horween Chromexcel leather, this timeless leather bag features an inside pocket for your small essentials, a snap closure, and interior ring to clip your keys for easy access. It is versatile enough to use as your everyday bag or for light travel, this rich leather bag was made to make a statement for a lifetime of use.
This handmade leather bag is meticulously made with the utmost attention to detail, hand-set copper rivets, and the natural vegetable tanned leather will darken to a rich deep brown, developing a beautiful patina with age.
What is "live edge"?
"Live edge" refers to the unfinished edge of a leather hide. Similar to the "self edge" of raw denim, there is only a limited amount of the live edge per hide. It has it's own unique shape and characteristics, and often has the square marks left by the metal clips used by the tannery to hang and stretch the leather side during the tanning process.
