Worthington Leather Purse

This Worthington Leather Purse is our signature purse designed in Worthington, MN. You’ll love how comfortable this purse is, and how it sits flush against the side of your body. The leather purse strap is fastened to the back rather than on the centerline of the gusset, giving it the ability to rest closer to your body than other styles of women’s purses. This purse has a wonderfully sleek feel and has plenty of space for your phone, wallet, and anything else you need to carry.

Durable and Long Lasting

Our leather goods are durable, and our Worthington Purse is no exception. We handcraft this purse from strong and long lasting American Bison full grain leather. We are able to craft this Worthington bag using no fabric lining because we finish the back of it. No fabric lining inside means there is no weak material to wear out prematurely, and a bit of extra space! As you use the Worthington Leather Purse it will darken while developing a fine patina that will make this bag more beautiful with age.

Carrying Length

The carrying length of the strap on this purse varies from ~22” to 28” (from the top of bag to the middle of the strap). The buckle is set on the second hole up, so you can make it 1” longer or 3” shorter.

Adjustable Strap

The Worthington Leather Purse comes with an adjustable leather strap. We make the strap by hand using the same leather so it matches. You can easily adjust the strap using the solid brass buckle so it sits on your shoulder at the perfect length. When you place your order, let us know how tall you are and we will handpick a purse strap with a length that works with your height when set to the middle hole. Then you can tweak the strap length on your bag to be perfect once it arrives!

    I am in awe of JESUS in all HE bestows upon us. I have searched for a “made in America” leather Crossbody purse for years. As I was searching once again, the BBC site popped up.
    As I was perusing the vast number of choices, I discovered the exquisite leather is Buffalo hide carefully prepared & rendered into beautiful leather goods. Then to my pleasant surprise the design includes an authentic Buffalo Nickel.
    I ordered the Trim Style with decorative leather on the flap. & Nickel in the middle. I ordered on Wed. & received on Sat. It was like Christmas I was so grateful & excited.
    The Trim Style purse exceeds all my expectations. The smell is divine. The feel of the leather is unmatched. Wow an attached Key Ring is included AND also inside, a secure pouch with snap closure, inside which to place paper $$.
    My large cell phone with Ottor Box cover/clip clips perfectly in the outside pouch.
    I am hands free now. My purse across me & my Martin Uke in my gig bag slung over my shoulder, I can go anywhere, unlock my door, etc.
    I praise the LORD for the Keitel Family, for their staff Sherry, Liz, Allison & all those who create such beautiful & practical leather goods.
    I bless you in the holy name of JESUS.

    Purchased a “trim style leather purse” for Christmas gift. Best purse I have ever bought for my wife. She has had much more pricey purses, bigger ones, more zippered, more compartmentalized but for general use, this is one is the best. The purse is very well proportioned, extremely well made with heavy stitching. The leather has been well cured and conditioned considering it is bison, thickened and less tractable. The aroma alone is worth the price of the purse, bedroom is redolent of this leather and seemingly therapeutic. I will
    be a customer in the months and years to come.

    I love my purse. Have been using it daily for 3 years+. The leather just keeps getting nicer with age. I sure it will last a long time.

    I baught my first purse at The Cow’s Outside in 1974 and being a kid, did not appreciate what I had and abandon it after about 10 years or so. Well, who knew 30 years would go by before I had another opportunity, so when I saw the Buffalo Billfold Co. at the Uptown Artfair in 2014, I bought this one and have not used anything else since. I love it – the color, the unique texture of the buffalo hide, the fact that I never have to use any kind of leather cleaner/conditioner on it and am confident that this was the last purse I’ll ever buy – it’s just that great! – So great, infact, I bought a second one for fun and an eyeglass holder too! Love this stuff and love the BBC!

    I bought this bag in June 2013 after wanting one for literally years! It’s really beautiful. The texture of the bison hide is unique–so much more interesting than calfskin. It falls nicely either as a shoulder bag or cross-body bag. It’s compact, yet holds an incredible amount of stuff. Love the color. Too often I found myself switching bags because I was wearing something that didn’t go with either a black handbag or one of another color. The deep, rich color of this bag goes with everything–black, navy, gray, brown, you name it! And of course the bag wears like iron. Mine still looks brand new. Thanks for a great bag!

    I bought this purse for my wife as a Christmas gift. She loved it. Upon inspecting the purse, the quality of the workmanship really stands out. It also goes great with my wife’s matching wallet from Buffalo Billfold. The other benefit is it ‘got me out of the doghouse.’ Thanks for a great USA made product.
