USA Handmade Leather Zipped ToteIn Blue Handmade
In Blue Handmade is a group of friends who handcraft leather and waxed canvas goods in Asheville, NC. Since its inception in 2008 the team has grown to nine Asheville residents and five amazing loud dogs.
All leather is sourced from the USA (in some of the oldest textile mills to date), working with different American distributors across the country, and specializing in eco-tanning process and second-source leather. In Blue takes environmental and humanitarian standards very seriously; they have transparency clauses with all farms, tanneries and distributors they work with.
Furthermore, In Blue Handmade are proud partners with Feeding America, donating 50 meals for every single bag they sell! They believe food is a human right.
