Beautiful soft leather. More than I expected as fits nicely around my wrist when walking and looks so hip. Arrived quickly and packaged professionally. Think I may have to buy more as gifts. Love it!!

I love it! We needed something tasteful to help us organize our incoming and outgoing mail. The richness of the brown leather with the teal walls is perfect.
Urban Article founder
I graduated college with a Fine Arts degree focused on printmaking and jewelry, but did not find work in a creative field as I had hoped. I began sewing my own clothes, because I couldn't find items that fit my tall frame, and I continued making prints and jewelry as a hobby. After my daughters were born, my creative endeavors slowed to a crawl until I attempted to re-stitch a leather purse my grandmother had used in the 70's. It was too worn to repair, so I remade it, and immediately realized I was on to something. Leatherworking merged my eclectic skills and interests into the design and making of beautiful leather items.
It’s important to me to create products that can be used and loved for years, just like that first bag. I also want the leather to be ethically produced, so we use only high quality vegetable tanned or upcycled American leathers. All Urban Article products are designed and made by us, in our Portland, Oregon workshop.
