The Bag: The Fairhaven Standard is your classic purse, small enough that you can’t bring the kitchen sink, but large enough to fit your essentials, plus a little extra. One zip-pocket outside for easy access to phone and keys. Inside, the vintage inspired linings are decked out with a set of stacked pockets, one with a zipper, the smaller fits cards or a lip balm. A leather pull on a brass zipper closes it in one fell swoop, and you can throw it all up on your shoulder, hold it in hand, or wear it cross body with the adjustable (and removable) shoulder strap.
The Leather: Our leather is sourced from a fifth-generation tannery, nestled in the Italian Alps that is well known for high quality and craftsmanship. This hide is a ‘pull-up’ leather that lightens when stretched or bent. This leather ages beautifully as it develops a rich patina of light and dark hues. It’s soft oil tanning and paraffin wax finish highlight the natural luxury of this leather.

Most of our bags and wallets are made to order. You may get lucky and catch the one(s) you love in stock, but generally our turn around time can vary from 3 days to 3 weeks. If you are in a rush, let us know. Sometimes we can work magic, but don't write us angry messages if we can't. We always do our best to ship as quickly as possible.
Also, due to the natural characteristics of the leathers we select, color and texture can vary slightly from hide to hide, piece to piece (every cow is different!). Feel free to inquire about the specifics of our current stock. Or better yet, drop by the studio.
