Handcrafted in the Southern U.S.A. with Amish Roots
Regina Bauman and Meg Delagrange, from childhood to adulthood.

We are two cousins who were both born Amish. As you might have guessed, we're not Amish anymore. We're two women who took a chance on a crazy dream, and it's working.

Today we work together behind Urban Southern with our families, sisters, and friends to handcraft leather bags from USA-sourced, full-grain leather in the heart of Tennessee. We combine the simplicity and durability of leather to make handbags for women from every walk of life.

I received my Urban Tote for Mother’s Day. I. LOVE. IT! I take it everywhere! I love the quality, size and timelessness of the leather bag.

I have 3 of these beautiful bags. The craftsmanship is impeccable and the styles are timeless. Money well spent.

Received my large Market Tote today. It’s more beautiful in person!!! The quality is just amazing every detail is perfect and I must add this is the first bag that I own that the straps fit perfectly. Thank you for such an amazing experience!
—Maria Shumate
The last bag I will ever buy. I will carry my mini tote for years.

A Scandinavian Summer Treat: Iced Berries with Hot White Chocolate Sauce

By Regina Bauman | June 27, 2018

One summer day I drove to Nashville and pulled into the airport pickup lane, waiting for Meg to arrive from Denver.

Usually, as we drive we…
