We make bags for people who do things.
Buffalo & Co leather bags, wallets and small accessories are made by hand in our workshop in San Francisco’s Tenderloin District.
We’re committed to producing sleek yet durable leather goods that can be worn in every situation—whether you’re working or working it out on the dance floor. That’s why we produce all of our products in small batches, which ensures each and every one of our products are one-of-a-kind and can withstand the test of time.
We primarily use vegetable-tanned leather because it creates the least amount of chemical waste and produces a honey-colored patina that gets better with age–the way we believe all leather should.
Our primary goals are to one day provide training and liveable wage jobs to vulnerable communities; and, create functional products for the blogger, the gardener, the road tripper, the crafter and all the others who do things in between.
Owner, designer & maker Lake Taylor takes inspiration from her global travels and techniques from her varied education in leather work to make globally-inspired modern handbags. She left her job in the corporate world in early 2016 to pursue a career more closely tied to her creative spirit and where she could make a positive impact.
