This bag is the perfect size for me and it is really well made, from quality materials. It's got a a heavy duty zipper, leather straps and double stitching everywhere. I expect that this bag will serve me well for a very long time. Great workmanship!

I originally ordered the tote in brown. It was beautiful!! However...when I got ready to leave my review I saw that Niamh had come out with a rust color of the same tote. After serious thought : ) I decided to see about exchanging the brown color I had for one in rust. Niamh was quick and very helpful! I just got the rust color in the mail and I LOVE IT!!! The craftsmanship and quality of leather is beautiful!!! I'm a very happy customer and would refer anyone and everyone who's looking for a quality made bag to last them a lifetime to consider Lyonheartbagco. A thousand times thank you Niamh!!!

About

Waxed canvas and leather bags, handmade in Oakland

Several years ago I started to experiment with waxing my own canvas. I was interested in finding a material that could hold up to use as well as leather. I had been working on designing the perfect handbag for myself -- something that was utilitarian without too many frills, but sophisticated and well designed at the same time. One wax coated dryer later and I had a prototype of what is now my best seller, the Pisgah Fold-Over Tote. I used that initial prototype daily, taking note of features that needed improving.

I started Lyonhart Bag Co. 3 years ago, bringing to it nearly a decade of professional sewing experience. Over two years ago it became my full time job.

I source all of my materials locally and domestically whenever possible, and I love interacting with the other small businesses that supply my materials. My waxed canvas comes from a family owned company that has been producing the fabric since the late 1800's. I get my leather from a place up Napa, a quick drive from where I live.

Most days in the studio include a balance of cutting and sewing, answering customer emails, staying on top of ordering supplies, and sitting down with my sketchbook and a cup of coffee to work out new designs.
