ABOUT OUR PURSES
These sturdy bags are made from full grain vegetable tanned cowhide.
For our soft leather bags we utilize 2 - 3oz. vegetable tanned garment leather.
Our hard leather purses utilize the tanning process and finished leather called “English Bridle”. that Hartman Leather sources from a tannery in Curwenville, PA, where they split the leather down to a suitable weight, generally 5 – 51/2 oz. Leather craftsman Dave Hartman finds this weight to be ideal for his work, as the leather will mellow and soften while keeping its shape.
Bags are carefully crafted at Hartman's Granville Island shop. Pieces are glued together and then sewn with nylon thread. All stress points are reinforced and inner pockets are made of glazed pigskin. Each detail is carefully considered to ensure the bag's longevity durability and many years of enjoyment for the buyer.
With proper care, these bags can last a lifetime. All the hard leather bags are available in black and brown with an adjustable shoulder strap. All bags are unisex.
