This is a blemish item. Blemishes may include scratches that are a little deeper than normal, small spots or specs or other minor cometic anomalies. Most blemishes will not be noticeable to the casual glance. Only upon close inspection are they apparent.
These are not major blemishes that would be embarrassing to own. They are simply minor cosmetic blemishes that give the item a bit more "character" than normal. In fact, many of these blemishes could develop over time anyway through normal use.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with this item structurally and it is still backed by our warranty. We would never sell an item that doesn't function properly, so no need to worry about that.
So you are truly getting an incredible value at these prices if you don't mind a little extra "character". But we typically only have a few and may not get any more. They are sold on a first come, first served basis.
Blemish items are returnable under our return policy. We even include our standard free domestic shipping. But if you choose to return it, you will need to pay for return shipping.
Please note we do not have individual pictures of blemished items. To see the full description of this product and all regular photos, click here.
Not only are our products handcrafted right here in the USA, but we use strong North American steer hides.
Because we use only the highest quality full grain vegetable tanned leather, our leather is rich in character and the surface is natural, not sanded or altered. This means you may see naturally occurring small scars, creases, and striations. These minor markings are not flaws, they are features and a hallmark of quality leather.
The leather also has natural color variation. No two hides are identical. So you may notice some color variation even among products that are the same color. The leather may look slightly different in different light, etc. This is part of the natural variation of the hide. But we can assure you, the leather looks even richer and more beautiful in person!
Saddle Tan is a medium/dark tan color that is absolutely eye-catching in person. It shows a natural marbling and depth of character that is quite unique.
Vintage Brown is a rich dark brown color. It also demonstrates some marbling and depth of character you won't find in most dark browns. It looks like an old-school vintage leather, which accounts for the name.
Black is a solid black color on both sides of the leather.
Our leather will become even more beautiful as it ages, developing a rich patina. The leather is very durable and can take most anything life throws at it, but proper care and maintenance is recommended. We offer a specially formulated, all-natural leather cream that works wonderfully with our leather.
We use 100% vegetable tanned full grain leather made from strong American steer hides - the best you can get. Less than 10% of leather is made this way. Watch a video
We use solid brass, antique finish, hardware. An old-school rarity. Most bag makers use cheap metals or even plastic hardware.
We use heavy gauge, industrial strength, bonded thread to make our leather goods. It may be overkill, but that's what we do.
Making the best possible leather products is only an achievement if they’re attainable for most people. And that’s what we’ve done with our unique business model.
This level of quality materials would cost at least twice as much at other retailers. By streamlining the process and selling directly to you online, we’re making luxury-level leather goods attainable.
Who says you can’t have your cake and eat it too?
