Timeless style with a Moxie & Oliver twist, our handmade leather bucket bags are a bag you will never want to be without. Each of these pieces soften with use into a tote style bag (with closure, of course) and get better with age! This leather purse is in the Dakota pattern with little flower clusters and leaves (or feathers, depending on who you ask!) on the bottom. The colors are white, turquoise, yellow, pink and antique black. The antique black color is a warm, light black that coordinates with black and brown, as well as just about any color you can imagine! Our Bucket Bags start as a piece of tooling leather that we cut, brand, paint and dye by hand before applying a protective topcoat, The piece is then stitched together by hand and has a drawstring closure. It comes with a shoulder strap that attaches to the D-rings at the top of the bag. Dimensions are approximately 11" by 10" by 3" and the shoulder strap measures 5/8" wide. STRAP OPTIONS: This piece is designed to work as a shoulder bag or a backpack! Choose the strap option that you would like at check-out. I hand cut each strap, so if you would like your straps to be a specific length, just leave me a note in the "notes to seller" with the length you would like and I'll customize it for you. Handmade in Seattle. I am happy to do custom orders - just ask!
I'm a full-time leathercraft artist, mother, and author of "Leathercrafted." I'm a certified leathercraft master. I started Moxie & Oliver in 2014 out of a desire to create leather accessories that were as durable as they were beautiful. After eleven years making leather goods, and with the original pieces still in use (and looking amazing), I have accomplished that and so much more. Teaching leathercraft classes out of my studio allows me to share my love of the craft, my knowledge of the process and history, and my original techniques for adding pattern and color, with interested students. Classes are open to anyone age 12 and older (under 18 must be accompanied by an adult taking a class at the same time). My unique process allows anyone, artistic background or not, to be able to create a beautiful, functional, leather good in an afternoon, a day or a weekend. Come with an open mind and a rough idea of what you'd like to accomplish - with your inspiration and my guidance, YOU will make something wonderful!
