1 item left

Little Bras d'Or - a small cross-body to fit the essentials.

The Little Bras d'Or was inspired by the simple beauty of Cape Breton. It doesn't take much to make this bag stand out - it's simple and it works. Crossbody strap, with a solid brass buckle to let it sit at just the right length. It has two small pockets on the inside for the small stuff, and a snap closure to keep your goods safe and secure.

Made by hand by Phee's Original Goods in their workshop in Sydney, Nova Scotia;
"We use pebbled oil-tanned leather for the body of this bag - a soft and supple leather with beautiful grain and pull up, all of which allow it to patina and age with use. The straps and accents feature the finest full grain vegetable tanned leather from Wickett and Craig. Our vintage Singer 111 sewing machine is threaded with Vinymo thread - a combination that means our bags are strong enough to take a beating. Hand tools, presses and solid brass hardware finish the Goods off so they're ready for your special outings and your everyday adventures."

  • 9-11oz Wickett and Craig Veg Tanned straps.

We use an oil-tanned Kodiak hide which is super supple and soft, making it ideal for bags. Kodiak also has a great pull-up to it. This means that as you crease, wrinkle and scratch the leather, it will show. It gives great depth and character to the bag. As all high-quality leathers do, Kodiak will darken and scratch over time, creating a beautiful patina - something which is revered by lovers of leather goods.


Founded in 1867, Wickett and Craig are one of two veg-tan tanneries left in the States (Pennsylvania to be exact). The tanning process, called veg-tanning, is a natural, eco-friendly process that creates rich and smooth leathers of superior quality. We use harness leather, which is hot stuffed with waxes and tallows to ensure durability and colour depth. The whole process takes about 6 weeks, but it’s well worth the wait.
