Made with Deadstock Leather
We source our leather from fashion industry leftovers.
Every year, 6.3 million tons of textiles are wasted during the design and production process. Because leather is a natural product, full of defects, off grain, stretch/ growth/ injury marks, 12-15% can be wasted during the production and manufacturing process. For one single medium size tannery, for example, that could mean 20,000 square feet of "deadstock" leather every month. We work with these skins to keep them in circulation and out of landfills, delivering a product you'd never know was made from waste.
This bag is so so gorgeous. The design and size are perfect. The fact that this is sustainably made makes it a win/win. However, I purchased it in May '22 and the bag started to show some fading along the bottom piping of the bag and the bottom portion of the leather. I contacted Hyer Goods and they were extremely helpful in making it right.
I was so excited to receive this, but not super impressed unfortunately. The quality of the leather is kind of flimsy, not sturdy and structured like the photos appear. The bottom of the bag I received doesn't sit flat like it does in the photos, it bulges outward and just looks awkward. For the price and the other reviews I was expecting something with better quality. :(
Hi Hanna, I'm so sorry to hear you're not satisfied with your purchase! This bag is a semi-structured bag, still structured but less structured than some other items on the site like the Cube Bag or the Bucket Bags. We happily offer free returns or exchanges if you'd like to try one of our more structured pieces.
I bought this at a pop up in Chelsea, NYC. It’s so on trend and fits the essentials. The shoulder strap is super comfy and doesn’t slip. I love it!
