What We're All About

It all started in Kenya with my head deep inside a hungry lions mouth... Kidding. Our story isn't that adventurous. We are world travelers though!

Having lived in or explored over 50 countries on 6 continents, we have a good taste for travel. We have had the opportunities to see fashion up close, worldwide. We noticed the bags which were worn, distressed and well traveled received the most looks, admiration and envy.

We strive for that rustic, well traveled look with each of our handmade leather bags. To go with this vintage style, we source only the best full grain goat leather. Each leather hide is vegetable tanned for at least 30 days using no chemicals or dyes.

Isle of Vintage has a simple aim: provide premium quality, distressed leather bags at an affordable price. We want all the other bags out there to whisper with envy about your handmade leather bag. It’ll happen, trust us.

Our Passion


To show our love for travel and our sense for adventure through our leather bags. Well traveled look & ready for adventures!


Our leather bags, from the satchels to the messengers and duffles are a shout out to the classic, vintage look. Timeless.


The majority of leather bags you find are several hundred & even thousands of dollars. We aim for realistic pricing.

“The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten”
