ABOUT PORTLAND LEATHER GOODS
Portland Leather Goods has quickly become the go-to for high quality leather bags at an affordable price. Before Portland Leather Goods, it was nearly impossible to find a simply designed, affordable bag made from quality leather.
Portland Leather Goods makes the leather bag everyone already knows they want but can't seem to find at a price they can feel good about.
With hides sourced exclusively from the U.S. beef industry, Portland Leather Goods ensures that materials that would otherwise go to waste can have a second life. Those hides are tanned in award-winning facilities that not only meet, but continually redefine the standard for eco-forward practices in the field.
It’s no wonder then that Portland Leather Goods has accrued over 160,000 five-star reviews in the last six years and more than a third of those who buy their products are returning customers coming back again and again. Their following is cult-like. Customers can’t believe the quality, they can’t believe the price, and many can’t seem to stop themselves from ordering more and more of Portland Leather’s beautiful products.
