Leather and Cowhide Care
We handcraft every bag with authentic and real high quality leather. 
We are not responsible for item wear that is a result of customer use. This includes, but is not limited to; constant rubbing, heavy packing, misuse or harsh environmental conditions. Proper care for leather items such as conditioning and proper cleaning will ensure the longevity of your item(s).

One of my earrings flew off and I lost it.  Can I just get one earring?  

We do not replace half sets of earrings or single earrings.  This is primarily because we work in genuine leather, and each hide is different, so likely, if we did replace, the hue of the leather may be slightly different and not match your existing earring.  We recommend keeping the earring backs that come on your earrings and putting them on any time you wear your earrings to help prevent earrings from flying off in the wind or getting easily pulled out on a scarf or hood.  

Are your earring hooks nickel free? 

Yes, our earring hooks are hypoallergenic and nickel-free.  

What are your shipping rates? 

Shipping rates vary from $7-$15 depending on size and total order of products. Wholesale orders will calculate shipping based on order size.  

How long does it take to receive my order? 

Each listing will have an estimated turn around time. Most smooth leather bags are made to order and our current lead time is 2-4 business days. Orders ship Priority Mail through the USPS. 

Where are you located?

Where can I shop in person? 

You can find our current open house schedule here

Do you offer Sezzle?

Yes! You can use Sezzle on website and auction orders to buy now and pay later. 

Care Instructions

You've made a beautiful choice, let's make sure it lasts forever! 

Daily Sun

With great care, our handcrafted leather goods can last well beyond our lifetimes.  With using daily, the leather will look and feel more beautiful, soaking up the sun.  The first scratch is a tough one - we know, but with time, these natural age marks, dings, and patinas will become a beautiful tapestry just as original as you.

Condition Occasionally

We recommend applying a leather conditioner when it feels like the leather needs it.  Your leather will start to feel a bit stiffer than usual, or notice it feels dry.  If you use your  bag daily, this may happen every few months, or could be more or less often depending on your use and environment. Our favorite conditioner is Chamberlain's brand leather conditioner and healing balm. Use a soft t-shirt type rag to rub a small amount of conditioner throughout. A little goes a long way. 

Spill and Waterproof

You might want to apply a waterproofing spray or conditioner for some extra protection if your bag may be exposed to rain, kiddos, water bottles, etc. We recommend Chamberlains water proofer.  Use t-shirt style or lint free cloth to rub throughout, a little is all you need. 

Clean as Needed 

Did your item get a bit dirty? Stay away from harsh chemicals or wipes.  Gently wipe off any excess spill with a dry cloth. Then, clean it up with leather specific cleaner - we like Chamberlain's leather cleaner, or Saddle Soap from Fieblings.  Remember to be gentle, no scrub brushes, just a soft cloth. 

For Cowhide - simply use a baby wipe to clean off lint or general debris, damp cloth for deeper dirt, and brush/blow dry until the hide returns to it's soft state. 

Handle your leather with care and it will be there for you, for years to come. 

Happy Trails, 

- Jill

I love chestnut and I love the getaway style of bag, perfect combination. It smells amazing and is so pretty to look at. I get complements regularly!

Chestnut Smooth Leather Hide is one of the Best

This is my second Getaway Weekender. I love the room and the ease of carrying it for travel or even a day trip to the kids house. The snap on this bag is great, stays snapped. The quality of leather, Chestnut, is not only beautiful but durable.
I will be adding a feather or tassel to this bag!

Getaways are a must have!

I had to add this chestnut to my getaway collection! Love the pull-up details in this bag! It adds so much dimension to the leather and bag.
It is pliable but sturdy and you have to see the chestnut to appreciate the details!

Getaways are great for travel and you can tuck a shorty tote, grandstand, and plenty of Jill's catchalls to keep your life organized!

Can't live without my getaways...and the HOH getaways are great too!

Thanks JH crew as always! 🤎🤎🤎


This bag is beautiful, high quality, and can fit a massive amount of stuff! We are currently using it as a treatment bag to take things when we go for our daughter’s chemotherapy treatments. It fits all of the essentials and then some! This is my second JH bag and I’ll be back for more!
