    Always quality work in a very timely manner - thank you so much for preserving our memories with my grandma's scarves as the lining!

    I was really impressed by the craftsmanship and detailing of this bag. Emily is super sweet and took the time to talk through the options for this gift. When it arrived in the mail, I was blown away at how beautiful it was and the significance of it made it that much more special. Rooted Leather is a true gem!

    Love my clutch sooo much!! Emily was great to work with as I decided what colors I wanted. The detail is perfect!! She used material from my son’s bedding making this so special to me. I’m now planning on getting a larger bag for work!

    LOVE LOVE LOVE my purses. I custom purses made for me and my mom using my grandma's old scarves. I found RootedLeather too late for a Christmas gift, and I couldn't wait until my mom's birthday in May to give it to her. So I settled for Valentine's Day instead. She teared up when she opened the purse and realized that it was my grandmother's scarf lining it. Thank you so much for letting us hold onto a such a special keepsake in such a creative way!

    I ordered a clutch for my mom and had a onsie added to the liner for a most beautiful touch. My mom cried when she opened it and saw the pictures I had included of both of my daughters wearing this sweet berry onsie. The quality on this clutch is second to none and the love included is remarkable. This shop was dealing with a major personal crisis during the creation of my order and, honestly, there is no way she should have been able to get this done. But she did. And IT. IS. BEAUTIFUL. Highly recommend (actually, already have passed the name to a number of people) and I will be back for more in the future 💕. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    I ordered three purses, after ordering one in spring and falling in love with it. Emily is beyond amazing, answering all my questions before and during the process. She does such an incredible job and the purses are such great quality. Highly recommend!

    My sisters and I purchased a Maggie Foldover Clutch for our S-I-L's 50th Birthday. The bag turned out beautifully and as expected brought Darcy to tears when she opened it to find the special lining inside. Emily was a dream to work with and I know our whole family will be keeping these wonderful keepsakes in mind for future gift giving.

    Absolutely beautiful leather and that personal touch of the interior fabric was extremely special!

The Rooted Leather Story

I spent an afternoon carefully folding baby clothes - clothes my three boys no longer fit into, my three boys who spent that afternoon running and laughing and wrestling and growing as I made those piles. I was surprised by how many emotions went into those piles of clothes; the memories flooded back as I folded. The onesies my sons came home from the hospital in, the sweater they all wore for their first birthday, the striped shirt that clung to each boy as they took their first few steps. These memories were wrapped tightly in these outfits, memories tied forever to this fabric. This is what inspired me to start Rooted Leather.

At Rooted, you send me a piece of your unique fabric; a onesie, your grandpa’s tie, a bridesmaid dress you wore for your sister’s wedding, and I will carefully line your new leather bag with it, protecting this memory and fabric for years to come. I use full-grain leather and high-quality thread to make a bag that will carry your memories well and bring a smile every time you open it. Rooted Leather. Bags Lined with Love.
