When you use premium Full-grain leather, sometimes there are slight imperfections on the hide. These are nature's beauty marks, freckles or perhaps some small scratches from a barb wire fence. Other companies have their leather shaved and sanded and covered with resins (plastics) so the hides look PERFECT. But these bags will wear out and never have that natural patina and glow.
These discounted "character" totes are often our most sought after when people come to our workshop in Portland and now you can get them at amazing prices.
