One-of-a-kind accessories hand crafted in Portland, OR

Established in 2012, nan-made is a line of carefully crafted bags and personal accessories. Owner/designer Nan Allison personally sews and assembles each piece in her Portland, Oregon studio, using salvaged Pendleton® wool and premium leather. The nature of working with reclaimed materials requires that focused thought and attention to detail is applied to each individual item. While this deliberate style of production may be slow, the end result is a line of one-of-a-kind goods, built to last, that truly stand out in the handmade marketplace.

Returns and exchange details
I want you to love your nan-made object. If for any reason you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, please contact me immediately so that I may remedy the situation. I am unable to accept exchanges on items once they have been used.
All in stock orders will be shipped via USPS 1-3 business days after your order is placed. Please double check that your shipping address is current.

In an effort to keep shipping costs as low as possible I do not automatically include any upgrades in the quoted price. However, If you would like to add insurance, or other additional services, please contact me and I will adjust the price accordingly.

All items are packaged carefully and shipped to the address given at checkout. I cannot be held responsible for any items lost or damaged in shipping. For this reason I highly recommend adding insurance.
Additional policies and FAQs
Please keep in mind that nan-made objects are created with reclaimed and salvaged materials. As such, these items occasionally bear surface imperfections and inconsistencies. I do not consider these to be flaws, but rather evidence of the unique history of each item. The leather used is premium quality from whole hides and salvaged sources. Leather also has natural variations in grain and I love including pieces that feature the unique markings of the animal.

I do my best to photograph and describe each item accurately. Please allow for minor differences in color as monitors may vary slightly.

To best maintain your bag I recommend spot cleaning with water and a diluted delicate fabric detergent. Sweater stones are a fantastic tool to remove any pilling that will naturally occur with regular use.
