Wildwood Oyster Co. leather bags have a lightly oiled finish that is designed for your daily life. Since our leather has naturally high oil content, it’s very self-sustaining, and you don’t need to treat it right away. For any scuffs along the way, just give it a quick buff to make it look new. You can always rejuvenate the leather as needed using a leather oil like neatsfoot oil every few years, too or send your bag to be pampered at the Wildwood Oyster Co. Bag Spa for a deep conditioning, weatherproofing, and new rope handle refresh.

As a specific note on the black leather, we use a heavy dye to achieve this rich color. Just like your favorite pair of dark wash jeans, please break in your bag before you wear it with a white shirt or white jeans.

Just like the little black dress, this must-have minimalist boho bag brings you from day to night in high style. Inspired by Maine’s beauty, this elegant bag combines the velvety black Kodiak leather, soft dock line rope, and classic brass for an industrial edge and surprising pop of bling. While this bag design is sleek, it’s got plenty of room to hold everything from your laptop to a pair of stiletto heels. It’s also designed for age – the stunning patina deepening and the leather softening to the touch the more you wear it. It’s the effortlessly chic bag that redefines a black purse into a statement piece that will turn heads.
