Beargrass Leather -- Inspired by Montana, Crafted by Hand
The Hathaway purse is made from full-grain leather in a timeless taupe. It is completely hand-stitched with waxed polyester thread, and it features our signature cross-saddle stitch. It features both a short top handle and a detachable, adjustable cross-body strap. It also features a brass front clasp, a 6"x 8" interior pocket, and expandable snap sides at the top. More often than not, this is the checklist for anyone who checks out our bags in person. It is not too big, not too small, features the cross-body strap, has the interior pocket, and the front clasp.
Furthermore, the leather is rich and supple, yet made to last for literal years (if not decades). Made by hand in northwest Montana with American leather and American thread.
Height: 10" / Width: 9" / Depth: 4" / Strap Length: 38-45" for the Cross-body and 7" of Drop for the top handle

Leather as a Natural Product:
Real, full-grain leather is a natural product. Each hide has a certain amount of “irregularities” which those in the leather business call “character.” Some hides even come with brand marks (which are awesome), nicks, bites, bumps, scars, and other awesome items of character. In the end, this is a sign that your leather is real, unadulterated, one of a kind, premium leather that will last for years.
Handmade in USA:
Every Beargrass Leather is crafted by either Samantha or Benjamin in scenic Montana.
For most Beargrass Leather products, we recommend Montana Pitch Blend for care and conditioning. Montana pitch blend performs two roles: conditioning and protection. The mink oil will soften the leather while the wax will help protect the leather from weather and wear. Montana Pitch Blend may darken leather, but most leather will darken over time.
For bags made of hair, simply wipe with a damp cloth with either simple water or a mild soapy water. Do not soak. Our hair-on-hide leather is created mostly for use as throws, pillows, rugs, and bags, so it can stand up to some intense use.
Most of our products are tanned and dyed by the tannery. As any color or dye, it may rub off if vigorously rubbed or wet. Over years of use, very few products have shown any rub-off of color. Nevertheless, the use of a good conditioner like Montana Pitch Blend with natural oils and waxes may help . But in the meantime, use caution.
