Small Leather Purse

We call this small leather purse the HMK in honor of the designer that created it. It has a single pouch design. You can easily secure the flap of using a genuine buffalo nickel snap attached to the front. The back pocket is perfect for carrying your cell phone. It will last far longer than other purses because it’s handmade from high quality durable Bison leather. We tan our Buffalo leather to exacting specifications. We developed the leather for this bag since 1972, and it’s proven to stand the test of time. This small purse is 100% Made in USA and built to last.

A Small Purse

This small purse is perfect for an evening out. It’s small & compact size lets you take just what you need with a little room to spare. The pouch is a good size for storing your wallet, keys and a little makeup or something of the sort. Especially if you’re taking it to a stadium or event venue that has size restrictions. The back pocket allows quick access to your phone, so every outing is selfie ready! This handmade bag will match any ensemble because it is available in both black or brown soft leather.

Small Crossbody Bag

This small purse features an all leather shoulder strap for carrying and its light weight design makes it ideal for wearing crossbody. You will have everything you need within reach with this small shoulder bag. Like all our purses, the HMK is handcrafted with care. We make it entirely from American Bison hide, so there is no fabric lining to wear out. And we use only solid, soft leather. In a world of increasingly fast fashion, the HMK stands apart as a long-lasting purse with a timeless style.

History of the HMK

Hannah, our daughter, designed the HMK purse when she was 16. We questioned and explained to her that it wasn’t going to hold much. She smiled and said, “precisely!” Customers everywhere have come to love the HMK. In fact, you can find this small leather purse in all 50 states and perhaps a dozen foreign countries! It’ll be easy on your shoulder and quick to pick up since it’s so light weight and compact.

  1. Michele

    Love the purse and knew it would be quality work. Bringing it with me on our upcoming vacation. Always a good gift, but decided to keep it myself – as I am partial to the coin clasp!

    Luv this lil purse! Perfect for traveling or going out and you don’t want a big purse. It’s great to carry a few essentials without being too big, built well and is secure!

  3. Becky

    I love my little purse. I don’t like to carry a large bag. This fits my credit cards, cash and bit of other “stuff”. Great quality! I’ll be using this for the rest of my days and hopefully one of my kids or grandkids will love it as much as I do….will last forever!

    Perfect size for an empty nester! Just right to hold a wallet and my business cards.

    This purse and smaller coin purse are Christmas gifts and have not been given to recipient yet. I’m sure they’ll be delighted.

  6. Stacey Fortier

    Love this purse. Took it to Hawaii. I would buy another one.

    For Christmas this past year, my six year-old granddaughter asked for a purse with a wallet in it full of cash and gift cards. I feel I exceeded her expectations with this beautiful HMK Buffalo Leather Purse from my friends at Buffalo Billfold Company. I included a matching wallet and have already purchased the matching coin case for her birthday. She loves them and seems to appreciate their quality even at her age. (The cash and gift card denominations remain our secret.) Bill & Lauri have never let me down and I would, without hesitation, recommend this, or any other of their products, to any discriminating purchaser. H D Locke

    Purchased this very fun purse while on vacation for myself, and loved it! I returned home only to have my daughter love it as well! Needless to say, we will be ordering another one, so mom gets her purse back! Craftsmanship is incredible, timeless styling, always get compliments, and inquires as to where I got it! Love that is not only made in USA, but my home state of Minnesota as well!
