From Leather Jackets to Beautiful Bags

Hello! I’m Randa Roberts. I’m a mom, wife, and designer-maker working out of my home studio in Sarnia, Ontario, Canada.

So Comfy Designs came about in 2012 as a creative outlet and a way to stay home with my little sons. It went from hobby to business plan quickly, once I started making bags from reclaimed leather jackets, custom requests started coming in, and my niche was cemented. I love making bags, and it's always a thrill to turn an unused leather jacket into someone's most often used accessory. Great care and consideration has gone into design and construction, and I proudly offer a free repair guarantee on every So Comfy bag.

Keeping small and handmade is what makes So Comfy Designs special, and it’s how I balance my business and mom/wife life. It's also how I like to run my business, slow, deliberate, and offer the best customer service to those who choose So Comfy Designs.

I love to hear from you, and I’m always reachable through an Etsy conversation, or my other social channels. I try to post lots of pictures of my work and share the stories here:

CUSTOM ORDERS

Whether it's your own unworn leather jacket, or one that belonged to a really important person in your life, a custom crossbody bag could be a stylish solution, and a meaningful way to repurpose something you already own into something you'll love to wear everyday.

Every style listed in this shop is available to be custom made using your leather jacket and the result is a beautiful, custom bag that is truly a one of a kind. When possible, zippers, linings, and sometimes pockets are reused, and if there is no zipper, or the lining is missing or damaged, your choice of premium zippers and quality lining will be subbed in when needed. Communication is key throughout the custom design process, and I share pictures of your bag as it's being created so you're in on the whole thing!

How to get me your jacket? Once you initiate the custom order process, I'll give you the address to either mail, or drop off your jacket (if you're local to Sarnia, Ontario, Canada) and from there you'll be given a date to expect your bag to be done. If you ship your leather jacket to me, I'll ship your complete bag back to you for free!

To begin the process of ordering and designing your custom bag from a special piece of leather, please send me a message or simply click "Request Custom Order". A $50 deposit is required at the time of order, with the remainder due when the bag is complete OR you can pay the entire cost upfront.

Custom So Comfy bags are truly the lifeblood of my business. I've learned so much about bag making from your custom requests and I go out of my way to make this an enriching and exciting experience for both of us.

DESIGNER WARRANTY

Each bag is handmade by my hands, from my designs, using the best materials at my disposal. They are tried and tested, and built to last. I am beyond proud of every bag that leaves my studio and you can expect it to serve you well for a long time. Therefore I stand behind my work and will repair any structural damages that could appear in the first year of use. Should you require this warrantee, send me a convo and I'll get back to you within 24 hours. Your satisfaction is my priority, and I want you to enjoy and love your bag for many, many years!

Frequently asked questions
Care instructions

I carefully select each piece of reclaimed leather that goes into every So Comfy bag and accessory. I usually apply a simple leather cleaner and conditioner, and recommend you use your trusted leather cleaner and conditioner when needed. Once a year should be sufficient. Remember to include the strap. The lining can be pulled out and hand washed carefully to avoid getting leather wet. Once it's dry, you can iron the lining on silk/nylon setting and it should look good as new.

Sizing details

So Comfy bags are designed to slouch and fit comfortably across your body, with the zippered opening sitting at hip level. The leather straps are adjustable from 20" to 42" typically, but longer or shorter straps are available at no extra charge. Please refer to each listing for specific measurements.

Custom and personalised orders

Every bag you see is available to be custom made using your leather! There is a $15 fee for all custom orders, and a $50 deposit required at time of order. To begin this process, click "Request Custom Order" on my Etsy shop and I'll get back to you quickly.

Please check out CUSTOM ORDERS in my Policies for additional details about this unique and exciting experience!

Wholesale availability

So Comfy Designs is a small batch maker, meaning I don't often offer wholesale, but I also don't like to miss out on an incredible opportunity! If you think that So Comfy Designs reclaimed leather bags and accessories would be an amazing fit for your retail shop, please send me a message.
