Description

The Heritage Saddlebag Story

You asked for a larger crossbody, and we listened. The Heritage Saddlebag was designed in response to requests for a crossbody bag with more space than our smaller Crossbody Wallet.

The Heritage Saddlebag is a nod to our Amish roots in both its name and its design. The pattern that inspired this exact bag was passed down through generations of leather smiths in our family.

We modified the pattern to create a youthful, timeless piece with unique touches like the brass carrying ring on the back, making it a one-of-a-kind bag to complement any wardrobe.

How it’s made

All of Urban Southern’s bags are made for women, by women, and this bag is no exception.

The pieces for the Heritage Saddlebag are cut one piece at a time from a full hide of our full grain, custom leather, and sewn together by Ruby and Brittany, our two-member production team right here in Tennessee.

We sustainably source the leather for this bag from a local tannery in Kentucky, and worked for over a year to perfect the weight, color and finish of the leather to bring you a bag that is as beautiful and durable as it is unique.

Put an extra pep in your step with this fun everyday bag by your side

The best of both worlds.

This bag was inspired by the past, but will last long into the future with its durable stitching and hardware. Get the best of both worlds with a bag that looks vintage, but was handcrafted just for you with custom details and buttery soft leather.

Make it last forever

This bag is designed to hold up to daily, frequent use and last you for a lifetime, but leather needs a little love to stay in tip top shape.

That’s why we made our Leather Cleaner and Leather Butter as part of our Leather Care Kit.

Here’s how to take care of your leather bag:

If your leather feels too stiff when it arrives, massage and roll it between your hands to soften it. Don’t be afraid to work it well! The best thing to do with a brand new leather bag is to use it. The more you use it, the softer and more beautiful it will get. Over time, full grain leather darkens and develops a natural sheen or patina.

Spot clean your leather bag gently with a soft, damp cloth, using our completely natural Leather Cleaner. Allow the leather to air dry completely (8-24 hours) before you condition it. Do not immerse your bag in water or use heat like a hair dryer to speed up the drying process.

Apply very small amounts of leather conditioner evenly on your entire leather bag. We recommend using our Leather Butter. You may also apply regular olive oil very sparingly as an alternative leather conditioner. The ideal time to condition leather to keep it healthy, supple and soft is about every 4-6 months.

    I ordered this bag during the Labor Day sale and I’m SO HAPPY WITH IT! I have worn it out about 4 times, and I’ve gotten compliments every time I’ve worn it. I’m a mom, so I’ll definitely be putting the Market Tote on my Christmas list this year to use as a diaper bag!

  2. saguaro28

    Just received my bag and have already carried it..love it! love the smell, the rich brown color, and the cross body design. Would love if you also made a larger size of this same bag, and also if you put a pocket in it/them for a cell phone..that would make it better than perfect! 🙂

  3. rschrockmt

    My favorite part of this bag? The brass ring. That was the little detail that sold me. Well, that, plus the smell of the leather, and the feel…

    For this prairie girl, the Heritage Saddlebag is a nod to my roots. I come from generations of wheat farmers, and my great-grandfather arrived on the Plains in a covered wagon as an infant. I am really enjoying this bag.

    P.S. – Who says you can’t grab the brass ring? 🙂

  4. Mary Zalubski

    Love this bag. Easy to carry and the ring handle makes it easy to grab when getting out of the car. Just perfect.

  5. Rebecca

    I have had this bag for over a year and a half… it is the ONLY purse I’ve carried since getting it!! Love the style of it, that it can be a crossbody or just over the shoulder and I grab the brass ring all the time. The only thing that would have made this bag absolutely perfect is a cell phone pocket on the back. I LOVE US!

  6. Nora

    Oh my goodness, where do I start. I just got my bag today as a birthday present from my mom. I had previously been gifted the Regina Tote, which I love, but it wouldn’t work for me as an every day purse. I already had a saddlebag leather purse, very similar to Urban Southern’s half-moon cross body, from a different company but I wished it was a little bigger. Guilt kept me longing for the Heritage Saddlebag but I couldn’t bring myself to get it because my other purse, though small, still worked and is in great condition (it’s leather, after all). Thanks to my mom reminding me birthday presents aren’t about getting what you need, she got me this bag. I LOVE IT. It’s very roomy inside and fits everything I have with a lot of room to spare. It also looks to be very well made. The main thing I noticed, after having a different brand’s full grain cowhide leather purse, is the look of the leather. I’m not sure what Urban Southern does to their leather but it is buttery smooth. The leather on my other purse was very bumpy. As a result, the old bag looked neat (again, a given with leather), but the Urban Southern bag is GORGEOUS. Even my husband commented on the difference. Urban Southern, you have a customer for life.

    They’ve done it again! This is now my 4th US bag and this brand continues to surprise me. This saddlebag is so simple in design, but it’s definitely not boring. Saddlebags have been around forever, but I have not seen one quite like this before. The leather is so supple, the brass ring makes for a comfy handle, and I love that the strap is adjustable but doesn’t have a little strap tail that flaps in the wind. Urban Southern, please don’t change. I love everything you’ve done so far and I can’t wait to see what else you come up with!

  8. Brittany

    Love this bag!!! Couldn’t ask for a better Mother’s Day gift-From the rounded saddle bag styling to the brass ring (my fave feature ) to the adjustable crossbody strap this purse is the perfect mid sized bag to carry. I got the brown and the leather is beautiful soft and supple and the smell…that’s always the best thing about leather! This is my second purse from US and they truly do an excellent job!

  9. Brittany

    My husband got me this bag for Mother’s Day during their sale and can I just say it’s amazing! From the rounded saddle bad styling to the brass ring (my fave feature ) to the adjustable crossbody strap it’s the perfect mid sized purse! I got the brown and the leather is beautiful soft and supple and of course the best thing about real leather is the smell! This is my second US bag and each time the exceed my expectations with their products and their excellent customer service! If you’re on the fence about ordering one definitely do it you won’t be disappointed!

  10. Holly

    I 100% recommend this bag! I received it as a gift from my students 1 1/2 years ago, and it hasn’t left my side since. I purchased an insert from Amazon to help organize it, and I’m always amazed at everything I can fit in it! The leather is softening beautifully, and I know it will last for ages. The brass ring and adjustable strap finish off this amazing bag. Thank you so much!
