The Bag I've Been Carrying All Summer Long

Travel purse

While I don't always have this luxury, I've been able to use this bag for two months before reviewing it. I have so much confidence recommending the brand after spending this much time carrying their product.

If you look at my minimal European packing list or recap from our travels, you'll see this bag all over the place. It was the only purse I took to Europe, and I have zero regrets about that decision! 

Based in Portland, Kafoury makes the most beautiful leather goods. Clean and minimal design allows the quality of the products to speak for itself.

Making the brand even more impressive is the fact that it's a one-man-show. Kafoury's founder, Ian, hand-makes every item that he designs. He selects only the finest leather and pours hours upon hours into the creation of his products. 


This shoulder bag goes with literally every single outfit I can come up with. Structured without being stuffy, the solid silhouette holds just the right amount of necessities for daily outings. 

An interior zip pocket and card slots allow you to keep the important things organized while you're on the go. 

When I first started using the bag, the leather was a very light tan color. Now it's started to beautifully patina and is working its way towards a gorgeous caramel hue. That's one thing I really love about leather, it tells the story of where you've worn it. 

Want more proof that I used this purse constantly in Europe? I was going through photos and spotted it in nearly every outfit! Talk about versatile. 

Who should buy this: Anyone drawn to clean, sophisticated lines will adore this bag. It's the type of purse that you could carry for your entire life and never grow sick of. 

Who shouldn't buy this: If you're the sort of person who carries the better part of her world in her purse, this may be a bit too small for you.
