Helena in French Calf
Helena in French Calf
Helena in sleek, black, french calf leather, lined in red, natural handles
Beargrass Leather -- Inspired by Montana, Crafted by Hand
The Helena has never looked so good. This version is made of sleek black french calf from the Tannerie D’Annonay, then it’s lined in a gorgeous red pigsuede lining, and accented with natural harness leather straps from the American tannery Wickett and Craig. The beauty of contrast and sophistication make this bag one in a million. This combination of leathers is timeless and classy. The Helena is a classic tote design and shows our signature crossing-saddle stitch. The handles are rolled with cotton piping and hand stitched to provide an amazing feel in the hand or on the shoulder. An inner pocket provides a perfect place to stash your cell phone. Foil stamped in matching black Beargrass Leather logo.
This tote is classic and simple. And it is quickly becoming a signature style of Beargrass Leather.

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 will help . But in the meantime, use caution.
