These bags are made from a cotton canvas that has been hand dyed by Ilana in her studio in Brooklyn NY. The canvas is dyed with fiber reactive dyes – the dyes are actually bonded to the fabric - which means they do not bleed or fade at all. Ilana then ships off the fabric to Boston, MA where Julia cuts and sews the leather and canvas together to make some lovely bags.

Leather is a natural material, sometimes surfaces will contain irregularities such as small marks and wrinkles. This adds to the character and uniqueness of the product. If a bag contains a more noteworthy mark, it will be noted in the item's description.

Handmade items are unique and one of a kind, for this reason there may be slight variations in stitching from one item to the next, that's what makes everything so lovely!


Product Care

Leather goods should only be spot washed, not put in the washing machine or hand washed. If spot washing does not work, I recommend taking your bag in to a leather cleaning professional.
