Women’s leather purses & handbags for every occasion

For our newest collection of stylish, classic leather handbags and purses, we took inspiration from the timeless looks of New York, Paris, and London and blended these looks with the premium full-grain Ethiopian leather we’re known for. Made for the businesswoman on the go, the fashion-forward trendsetter, or the mom who does it all, we’ve designed our purses and handbags to look great and last a lifetime.

What should you look for in a leather handbag?

We believe our bags are a canvas for your personal style and we celebrate the diverse, unique, creative ways you make them yours. Start with a classic, chic tote like the Merkato Signature Tote with a spacious main compartment, interior key ring & slip pockets, external zipped pocket, and room for a 15” laptop. This timeless bag matches everything. For a daring splash of color, check out the Nyala Foldover Clutch in Jade, Clay Red, Black, or Sand, featuring a soft linen interior and a closure made with two upcycled brass artillery rings. Finish the perfect boho look with the Emma Bucket Bag featuring a relaxed style, cinch closure, ample exterior slip pocket, and convertible straps to be worn over the shoulder or as a crossbody bag.

Crossbody purses are one of our favorite styles for convenient, fashionable everyday wear — no matter the occasion. Style your look around the Makeda Crossbody Leather Bag with plenty of room for your phone, makeup, and essentials for the day (or night!) complete with a charming natural leather tassel closure. If you need a more spacious bag for work, school, kids, or travel, the Eden Carryall does just that with ample storage space in a simple, convenient design plus an adjustable strap for comfort and fit.

If you’ve fallen in love with a few of our bestsellers like the Merkato Small Zip Tote or the Napa Handbag, you can mix and match your styles with removable, convertible leather straps to change your look up in just two clicks.

What is sustainable leather?

Our bags are crafted from the finest full-grain leather, but what is the difference between vegan leather and our signature "eco-leather”? Vegan leather means there are no animals involved whatsoever, but the synthetic materials and production methods aren’t always as “green” as you might imagine. We’re passionate about our materials and develop each bag with sustainability in mind.

Eco-leather means we purchase real leather from local ranchers as an animal byproduct from farms committed to the fair treatment of their animals, where the animals aren't raised for the sole purpose of leather goods. Our employees contact ranchers directly and only pick ethical farms to purchase from, so you can rest assured your purchases from Parker Clay are contributing to a more ethical world, one design at a time.

Eco-leather bags for personal style with sustainability and purpose

Best of all, each Parker Clay purchase contributes to the economic empowerment of at-risk women in Ethiopia who make above-living wage salaries and receive financial well-being training at our Addis Ababa tannery. While your bag is designed to last a lifetime, your purchase will contribute to generations to come.
