If you're looking to invest in a new leather bag you can wear everywhere, you’re in the right place! Please meet our gorgeous Mini Saddle crossbody. Not only is it super stylish and easy to wear with everything, but it’s also really convenient if you're travelling or always on the go!

Total versatility thanks to its size.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying that the best things come in small packages. Well, it’s the same with the Mini Saddle. This small shoulder bag has a gently curved saddle-inspired silhouette, a magnetic front flap and a small interior pocket, but don’t let its size fool you, it’s surprisingly copious. I can fit my wallet, keys, phone, basic makeup and a small water bottle in mine! It has a comfortable shoulder strap that can be adjusted to your preferred length and can be worn over the shoulder or across the chest for more comfort.

Our secret sauce? Our easy to clean lightweight leather.

Like the rest of our collection, the Mini Saddle is made with our signature lightweight, double-sided leather. On the outside we use the smooth buttery soft side of the leather and for the interior, we use the suede side which essentially functions as the bag’s lining. By using this bonded suede leather, we’re making the lightest leather bags on the market. I kid you not, this bag is lighter than your Tall latte! I researched leathers all over Italy to ensure that our bags are stylish and functional and that literally won’t break your back. As an added bonus our leather can be spot cleaned with a simple baby wipe (preferably fragrance and oil free), and holds its shape extremely well over time.

Quality craftsmanship from Rome, Italy.

It probably won’t surprise you that one of my biggest pet peeves when shopping for a new bag is the quality of the leather. As a multi-tasking mum and business owner, my bag has to be durable and survive a lot of wear and tear. That’s why, when I founded my company, it was so important for me to find a leather that wasn’t only beautiful but also durable. It had to be easy to clean and hold its shape well, but also soft and lightweight. If your life is anything like mine, your bag tends to get thrown around A LOT and having a leather that can stand the test of time and some bumps and bruises is a total must.
