Voted 'BEST HANDBAGS' by Down East Magazine!

There is inherent beauty in something made one at a time and at Rough & Tumble there is a commitment to the effort that this entails. Each bag is designed, cut, made, and finished here, at Rough & Tumble in Maine.

For years each bag was made solely by Natasha, from start to finish, in her home studio. Today, bags are expertly stitched by a team of primarily professional quilters under the direction of Natasha Durham, and production coordinator Amanda Trundy.

This signature mix of smart utility, archival form, and rugged luxury materials, marks a vision of authentic, resolved, and trend free design.

Rough & Tumble continually sources special leathers, textiles and custom fittings, ensuring a fast changing palette of reinvented, unique and forward looks.

In the summer of 2013 we opened our Studio Store in Norway, ME followed by our Flagship Store in Portland, ME in 2015.

Our Studio Store can be found at 414 Main St. in Norway, ME and
our Flagship Store at 127 Middle St. Portland, ME

Notes from the designer......
"Truly, if the leather is not luxurious, it matters not the slightest what the bag looks like in a photo."

KIND WORDS FROM AUSTRALIA....
Firstly, my bag looks exactly as it does in the pic.
Secondly, my bag arrived in Australia (!) way earlier than predicted, so in perfect time to pack for my forthcoming holiday.
Thirdly, the leather is great quality and the craftsmanship is clearly apparent in every little detail. I am so happy to have got exactly what I wanted - Thank you so much for listening to all of my needs and realising the final product exactly as I had hoped.
Kind Regards from Melbourne

CUTEST NOTE EVER....
'I love my new bag! I raved about it so much that somebody made me a birthday cake that looked like the bag.'
