American Made, Family Owned, High-Quality Leather
Here at American Hat Makers, all of our leather bags are made using all-natural, high-quality leather, sourced by our team of experts. We put care into finding the best materials, looking for leather that can hold it’s shape, look great as a leather tote, and last you a lifetime. Known for getting softer and more supple over time, it makes the perfect material for your next go-to bag. We made our mark on the hat industry with our handcrafted leather hats, and now we continue to stay true to our roots, while innovating and expanding into other accessories like leather crossbody bags, leather tote bags, leather backpacks, leather duffel bags and more.
We take quality so seriously that we can’t imagine not having a hand in the production of all our products, from our bags to our leather hat bands and everything in between. That’s why our leather bags are all made in America, and our business has been family-owned for half a century.
Our current collection includes luxuy leather accessorries like suede and hair-on leather. Suede is made using the underside of the hide, which makes it lighter and softer than classic leather. Long associated with movie stars and royalty, your suede bag will add a little extravagance to your everyday life.
Hair-on leather is, in many ways, the opposite. With hair-on, the hide never has the hair stripped off of it. This gives it the same durability of a full grain leather, but with a unique touch. Like your very own fingerprint, every one of our hair-on leather bags has a one-of-a-kind patten. The natural pattern and coloring will take on the same patterns as the animal it came from.
All this to say, we’re passionate about leather. Whether you choose a leather bag made of supple suede, novel hair-on, or time-honored classic leather, you can be certain of two things. First, you’ll be supporting long-standing leatherworking traditions that have been handed down through American families. Second, you’ll be getting a genuine leather bag, guaranteed to last you a lifetime.
