The Taplin Purse. Named after good friends of ours in Vermont, the Taplin Purse embodies all of the same qualities that the Taplins do - fun, bright, and sophisticated, with a strong sense of self.

Made with a soft cotton geometric psychedelic tent print on the outside, with a bright duck cloth highlight inside and welt pocket with same tent fabric.

We are so excited to be using Horween Leather - one of the last remaining tanneries in the US. Supporting US leather ensures that workers are treated well, use best practices, and are paid a fair wage. It's also pretty cool that we're keeping the craft alive here in the US and helping keep jobs here.

As seen in FRANKIE Magazine!
