Dakota Buffalo Leather Purse

Our Dakota Purse is perfect if you’re looking for something practical and elegant. This is the largest purse we make with a crossbody design. As a result, you can carry everything you need hands-free! Like all our products, we make the Dakota Purse from American Bison leather. We require the tannery to add a special finish on the back side of the leather. For that reason, we don’t need to use a fabric lining. Compared to the durability of real leather, fabric wears out much too quickly. No cutting corners here! Instead, the Dakota Leather Purse is made by hand using only full grain buffalo leather. We even fasten the decorative leather lacing on the gussets by hand. The Dakota Purse is as resilient and beautiful as the West that inspired it.

Leather Crossbody Purse

The Dakota Purse is a large leather crossbody purse that is packed with great features. It has one interior pocket with a divider to help keep things accessible and organized. The heavy duty zipper will keep your things secure. The front of the purse has two side-by-side pockets. It is the perfect place for your phone! We adorn the front pocket of the Dakota Leather Purse with a genuine buffalo nickel. The one inch wide strap will rest comfortably on your shoulder. You can also use the real brass buckle on the shoulder strap to adjust to the perfect length. You will love this large crossbody purse for years. The leather develops a patina with use, so it will look even better over time. Handcrafted by our skilled leather smiths, the Dakota Purse is Made in USA and built to last.

    I have had the best experience ever with this company and I intend to tell you about it in a long winded paragraph. First and foremost I was looking for a leather purse that that would be durable and not have a flimsy liner and zipper, something that would last, and I was also looking for something American made. Using a site I reference often (Madeinamerica.co) I found these guys and was sold. So I had settled on a purse I liked but I was having a hard time sizing the purse up based on their pictures/dimensions here. I just couldn’t visualize it and there is nothing in the pictures to reference the actual size. So I called them, and stumbled through an incredibly awkward request (awkward because of me not the person on the phone) of what I was wanting know about a certain purse they had. The lady that answered was great and I’m disappointed I didn’t catch her name. She seriously not only told me about the purses fit and shape but she also went and grabbed one and measured it for me right then and there. The one I was looking at ended up not working out but she recommended another one while going on to explain how wide the gussets were, ensuring that my wallet and glasses would fit. And once I told I’d like to purchase it she went as far to ask me my preference on the stamp length, the teacher of the leather and so on and so forth. Truly it’s the best experience I could have hoped for when buying a $200.00 purse online, and trust me I was still anxious until the day it showed up in the mail and I realized it was perfect. I hope if you guys are ever in the Denver metro area you can let me know somehow.

    I like this bag a lot but it comes just short of love because it is just a tad bit narrow which also makes the strap a tad bit narrow. I am afraid the strap will not hold up.

      Hi Sherry,
      Thanks for the review of your Dakota Purse! We hope that over time your opinion will change from “Like” to “Love!” So far over the almost 50 years we’ve been making purses, the straps hold up just fine over time and if it doesn’t, let us know! Our goal is your happiness. Thanks for giving this purse a try!

    I received my new Dakota Buffalo Leather Purse in a timely manner. It was exactly as I thought it would be. It holds a lot. My old purse had more internal pockets but they can wear with time. So, with this one I have smaller items in a separate pouch to keep them organized. The one inside pocket works great for flatter items. The leather is smooth, thick, beautiful and stitched perfectly. It will no doubt last many, many years. I always wear my purses across my body and this adjusts well for any size. Its very high quality and I am happy my husband bought it for my 60th birthday!

    My wife absolutely loves this purse that I got her for Christmas. What fine workmanship and quality. Why buy imported junk when you can own American made products that will last? More impressive than the photos convey.

    I love this purse! It is a perfect size for carrying everything. It is very well made! The leather is beautiful. The strap is long enough that I can wear it as a crossbody if I want. I highly recommend this purse for anyone who wants an excellently made, high quality, beautiful leather purse.

    I have been looking for a quality leather purse for a longtime! I have finally found it…this purse is beautiful! I love it!

    I purchased this lovely purse at the Art Fair in Custer State Park after watching the Buffalo Roundup. This is the perfect purse for me! I holds quite a lot, and even has a perfect sized pocket in the front for my iPhone 7+. The strap is long enough that I can wear it cross body if I’d like. My bag is different because the front of the bag is made from the hump of the buffalo, and has unique markings on the leather. I got to meet Bill which was a treat, and he told me about the bag that I bought. My purse is a beautiful work of art and I am thrilled with my purchase.
