Appealing widely to the artists, musicians, creative community at large, the No. 4311 Satchel speaks to the Bohemian in you.

Please note that we do not have current photography for a No. 4311 made in Distressed Buffalo, but you can see an example of this hide by viewing our No. 4313 Satchel page. Distressed Buffalo looks very much like our Crazy Horse leather, but rather than a tan pull-up effect like Crazy Horse, the pull-up for Distressed Buffalo has a rosy hue.
At ColsenKeane, we select the best US-sourced Full Grain Chrome Tanned or Veg Tanned Cowhides, and Full Grain Aniline Buffalo hides for our products. We only use Full-Grain leather, which is the highest quality leather you can get; far superior to the “genuine leather” commonly used by larger brands. Our goods are built from 5/6 oz or 8/9 oz leathers, depending upon the requirements of the product. We also use the most durable hardware in the industry, and offer handmade Copper buckles and hardware as an upgrade on many bag and belt items.
Our handmade Copper buckles are painstakingly hand-forged from pure copper by a metal smith in Montana. Copper hardware and buckles is an allergen-free option for your products and incurs a slight upcharge.
The Care & Keeping of Your ColsenKeane Leather Good:
So you bought a new Satchel and you're wondering how to take care of it?
You don't need to do anything at all for at least 4-6 months. Your leather good comes packed with the oils it needs to perform.
At the 4-6 month mark, we recommend a gently applied coat of Saddle Soap (available for purchase here). We suggest you do this with our Liquid Saddle Soap.
Please note that an application of Saddle Soap will darken the leather, just like age and patina does.
1. To apply Saddle Soap, take a clean soft cloth and gently apply the solution in a circular motion into your leather good. You may wish to begin at the bottom of the bag, in order to see how the Saddle Soap will affect the hide.
2. Let it dry 2-3 hours, or overnight if you want to be certain and it's ready to go.
3. Reapply again every 3-4 months.
We can only recommend Saddle Soap on our products. Though you may surely be able to use them on other leather goods purchased elsewhere, or on larger items like chairs or sofas, we can not guarantee the results and therefore would not be able to recommend it.
Should your Satchel have some years and wear-and-tear on it, you may need a small overhaul. In that case, let us refresh your Satchel for you.
We offer a Refresh Your Satchel package during which we will give your well-loved ColsenKeane Satchel a thorough once-over and cleaning. We will use our liquid glycerine saddle soap to thoroughly clean and condition your bag; carefully inspecting each rivet and each stitch and repairing anything found, to ensure the continued integrity of your go-to companion.
