Handmade Canvas and Leather Bags By Shelter

Finding inspiration from the mountains of Vermont and North Carolina, SHELTER creates lovely handbags, wallets, and backpacks using simple and durable materials such as canvas and leather.


Each piece is hand made in their studio in Asheville, NC.

The Rolston Bag ($138)

Named after a gentle winding road in the Green Mountains, this lovely backpack is the perfect laptop or book bag. Features six small pockets on the front and a small silver hook inside for your keys. Made from 100% cotton canvas with a vibrantly printed fabric highlight on the top flap.

The Taplin Purse ($82)

Made with a soft cotton geometric psychedelic tent print on the outside, with a bright duck cloth highlight inside and welt pocket with same tent fabric. Leather is a stoned oil from all North American hides. All brass hardware with simple Sam Brown closure.

The Ripton Clutch ($62)

A wonderful little clutch with all the space you need for a small notebook, cell phone, keys, and enough money for a pint of maple syrup and some penny candy.
