Penny Royal

Pennyroyal is a company based on the desire to create your favorite bag. The bag you will want to, and can, carry for years and years. We create modern, understated, classically styled bags. We do not follow trends. Trends come and go, style is timeless. We design our bags to be as relevant years from now as they are today.

All our bags are made in house to ensure the highest quality. By using only high quality American leathers we not only ensure your bag will age beautifully and get softer and more subtle with time, we are also supporting American tanneries and local jobs.

Everything we make is designed to encourage a movement away from the culture of disposable, and a movement towards a culture of quality. We feel like a handbag is a very good place to start.

We do not design bags for mass production. Every bag is made to order or in very small batches.
