I'm Doug McCubbins, a member of the Southern Highland Craft Guild, and I've been designing and constructing soft handmade leather purses and accessories since 1975. I personally make every item I sell, so you can be sure it's done correctly. My designs are simple and strong, the kind of leather purses you could find at craft shows in the 1970's. All of my bags are intended to be soft and unstructured with no stiffeners and an all leather exterior. Linings, when applicable, are cut from heavy nylon fabric with all leather pockets. I design the patterns, cut and sew the leather, and ship the bags directly from my workshop in Asheville, NC. If a genuine limited production, handmade leather bag, made in the USA from domestically available materials appeals to you, then please take a look at my site.

Some of the features of my Highland Leather brand bags include sturdy nickel plated hardware, reliable nylon zippers from YKK, strong and durable nylon shoe thread, and soft supple aniline cowhide. If you're looking for a solid, handmade leather bag of traditional design and durable quality, you've come to the right place. Your new Highland brand bag will be one of the longest lasting bags you've ever owned. I guarantee it!

Highland Leather Company is a "production" craft shop. I specialize in reproducing my own line of original designs for sale on a "what you see is what you get" basis and do not accept custom orders. Thanks for looking at my site!
