Minnie + George

Minnie + George specializes in handmade leather goods for women and men made by owner & designer, LA Caldwell, in her home studio.

Keeping a minimalist but classic aesthetic, we aim to connect our customers to the true beauty of simplicity and create our products to be both functional and fashionable for a lifetime of loving use and wear. The vast majority of the leather we use is sourced locally, through Oregon Leather Co. We also take pride in only using American leather as to ensure a more ethical form of production.

We’re proud to employ the traditional craft of hand-stitched leather-working. Hand-stitching is the strongest way to construct a bag. All the stitching is completely hand-cut and stitched using 5 cord waxed linen thread. It is double needle saddle stitched, with an overhand knot in each stitch, so even if one side is severed the seam will not come undone. The stitching is also set deep in a cut channel so it cannot be abraded by wear.
