Made for your everyday life.

Are you tired of buying bags that don't last?
Looking for something unique, with a classic look?
Want to be part of a community of women? 

You're in the right place.

Welcome to Urban Southern


Uniquely designed for distributed weight carry, the Market Tote can hold a world of goods with absolute comfort.


The perfect choice for those who want the look of a tote without the size of a large bag.


This sturdy wallet with a removable crossbody strap will become your new best friend. It has that classic look to polish your everyday style.
Made from locally sourced leather.

Honestly Sourced

Full-grain leather. A by-product of the food industry. Tanned by local tanneries. So you can feel good about the bag you carry.

Regina Bauman and Meg Delagrange, from childhood to adulthood.

Yes, we were born Amish. Now we have begun a movement with our leather bags. We are women who believe in empowering each other. We are women who want to make your life better.

When we make our bags, we think about what you actually need in your everyday life. We think about what's going to help you do what you need to do.
