About xobruno handmade leather bags...
xobruno specializes in handmade leather bags and accessories. Our signature line features classic styles including tote bags, messenger bags, wristlets, clutches, wallets, card holders and pouches. We believe in products that are made in the USA, which is why we make everything by hand in our Portland studio. Our products are inspired by classic design, an obsession with well-made leather goods, and a love of travel. We believe making a bag that travels well and only gets better with time. More That’s why we use environmentally conscious vegtan leather, which patinas and wears with use, giving each piece a personality and beauty all its own. We also use high quality wax-infused canvas, quality metal clasps and closures, and heavy duty construction techniques that guarantee that the bag you carry not only looks good, but does it’s job. Founded by Michelle Kline in 2011, the name xobruno is a tribute to her grandmother, whose maiden name was Bruno. The company pays homage to all the women in her family through a legacy of creativity and handcraft.
We love supporting other local artists and makers, and carry the work of some of our favorites in our retail shop, where you can come browse our selection of leather goods and the occasional one-of-a-kind or limited edition pieces. We feature a different local artist each month on our gallery wall, and host opening receptions on First Fridays. We are located on the 800 block of East Burnside street in Portland Oregon, and are neighbors with an amazing number of other independent, locally owned businesses including jewelry makers, clothing designers, vintage sellers and more. We love being a part of such a thriving and diverse community!
We are always working on new styles, improving classic designs, incorporating new materials and collaborating with artists on new products, so be sure to follow along on Instagram and Facebook for a sneak peek into our process, our community and the different projects we are involved in! We also love to thank our customers with special discounts from time to time, so be sure to join our mailing list so you never miss out. Thank you for being a part of the xobruno family. We hope that you enjoy your new handmade leather bag/wallet/accessory as much as we enjoyed making it for you.
