The Mohinders Leather Shopper
THIS IS A PRESALE ITEM. LEATHER SHOPPERS PURCHASED NOW WILL SHIP LATER THIS YEAR. SEE BELOW FOR MORE INFORMATION ABOUT SHIPPING + DELIVERY.
The Mohinders Leather Shopper is just like our shoes: it adheres to the Mohinders design ethos of creating beautiful, timeless goods that are durable, can be used everyday, go with almost everything and get better with wear & age. It also adheres to our ethical ethos of creating goods produced by fairly-compensated artisans with more sustainable material.
We wanted to make a big bag because, if you're like us, we haul lots of stuff in our personal lives (groceries, trips, kiddos' things, doggos' things, etc.) and in our Moh lives (shows + markets). We wanted to make a bag that can do a lot and can be used a lot.
Each Leather Shopper is made of chrome-free, vegetable tanned leather and sourced from a Leather Working Group gold-rated tannery. The artisans crafting this bag are part of a small producer group overseen by a World Fair Trade Organization social enterprise.
Leather Shoppers are made in small batches of 50 bags at a time.

About The Leather Shopper
Nearly 7 years ago, our Founder + OG Mohinders Peddler, Michael, stumbled upon a social enterprise organization supporting artisan producer groups in the Kolkata area called SASHA.
One of the groups they worked with made some of the very first canvas shoe bags for Mohinders and painted on our original turquoise and red stripes! We’ve always wanted to do more with SASHA as we were impressed by their integrity and passion for promoting beautiful artisan-made goods.
When Michael learned that one of their producer groups were experts in leather bag making, weaving leather, and a new-to-us technique of embossing and hand-painting leather, we had to find a way to work together.
And so, The Mohinders Leather Shopper was born.

Similar to our shoes, we recommend cleaning your Leather Shopper with a soft brush or cloth and air drying. To keep the leather in good condition, we like Chamberlain's Leather Milk because it's natural and doesn't darken the leather.
