I design and make each bag myself so you can be assured of great quality. I stand by my craftsmanship and will refund, repair or replace any bag with a fault.A B O U T> Leather is a natural product and no two hides are alike. The leather I use often has scars, marks and insect bites, a testament to the animal's life. Each hide will also differ slightly in dye colour, intensity and shade. The wax from the wax canvas may darken and soften the leather over time, enhancing the antique effect.>The leather will be moderately water resistant (in a rain shower for example) but do not immerse in water. It will naturally soften and darken with time and use.> Waxed canvas should not be washed with detergent or ironed - just gently wipe any stains or marks with a damp cloth and warm water or a dry brush. > A sticky lint roller is the best way to remove fluff and lint from your canvas bag.>Your bag will feel oilier in warmer conditions and less oily in colder conditions.>Your bag may be re-waxed by a professional dry-cleaner that offers this service.>The organic cotton lining may be spot cleaned with warm water and mild detergent.

I LITERALLY just received this bag & absolutely LOVE it! First off, it's worth the wait as it's so exceptionally well made & beautiful! It's classy, stylish & functional, all in one! The leather is just gorgeous & high quality. The inside has many deep pockets! I was undecided on the size & glad I went with the small size as a diaper bag, as I don't carry much myself and few items for my toddler. The lighter grey is the perfect shade of grey! You can wear it many ways & even had little additions done to my bag & so happy I did! Also purchased the leather stroller clips too. The seller/ creator was easy to work with & happily made the certain changes to the bag. She was also very responsive & wonderful to work with, as well! This bag is worth the price tag, as other reviews mention, you will be VERY pleased, as I am!! ;)

I am so happy with this bag. I purchased the size small and it is perfect for a diaper bag. I like things to be a little less bulky and this fits the bill. The fabric is also perfect for wiping down with the inevitable spills. It is a little bit coated, in a really good way. The quality does not disappoint either.
I had to wait to receive this because it is handmade and the owner was kind enough to answer me when I wanted more info on when exactly it might arrive. She was responsive and gave me more info.
I was so pleased with my interaction and with the end result of having my bag in time for baby in just a couple weeks :)

This bag was a Christmas present from my husband and I could not be happier with it. I reached out to Samantha about customizing the size, and she was very responsive and helpful. I cannot say more good things about her communication and support. In terms of the actual bag, the quality of materials and workmanship are exceedingly good. The colors of the leather and canvas are what I wanted and hoped for. Moreover, the many compartments are so useful! I am currently traveling with this bag converted into a backpack and am thoroughly satisfied!
Thank you Samatha for your wonderful work!
