Isabelle Shoulder-bag in Hair-on-hide
The Isabelle is a luxurious custom design from Beargrass Leather. It is made of one continuous cut of cow hair leather with the gussets and handles constructed from supple Horween Tobacco Stampede full-grain cowhide. To top it off, the Isabelle is fully lined in copper colored leather with an interior pocket. With a leather tote or shoulder-bag this nice, it's great to know that our hand-stitching is durable enough to last a lifetime. The Isabelle you buy will be the Isabelle you see for this listing. Due to the uniqueness of the natural pattern of the hair, each Isabelle will have its own listing.

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.
