Product Information


The Softie is a very soft hobo style purse with a full nylon lining and an inside zipper.

The Softie is a larger purse with an exaggerated curve at the top and an extra long zipper for easy access. The inside zipper pocket is cut from the same leather as the exterior, and a small slip pocket for your cell phone is sewn inside. The nylon lining is strong and durable. The strap adjusts from short to cross body length with a nickel finished ring and slider. Handcrafted in the USA by Doug McCubbins and Highland Leather Company.

The shoulder strap is about 1 inch wide and adjusts with a slider and ring to a maximum of about 48 inches. Most women can wear this purse cross body for extra security.

The leather I use for this purse is a soft and sensuous cowhide with a light semi-aniline finish. Semi-aniline means that the leather has been soaked in dye for a deep and durable color and then finished with a top coat of color to give the skin greater uniformity and some resistance to spotting and staining. All leather will stain if something oily or sticky gets on it, but you can take this bag out in the rain with no problems. I recommend periodic use of saddle soap or a good quality leather conditioner to keep your bag looking its best.

As always, this purse is handcrafted in my Asheville, NC workshop. This purse has a full fabric lining in a neutral gray color.
