No. 4320 - The Mailbag
Pickup available at 1707 E 7th St
Usually ready in 5+ days
After some searching, we finally found the perfect leather to bring our minimalist version of a classic Mailbag to life. Constructed here in our Charlotte, NC studio, our Mailbag is cut from Denali Leather, which brings a relaxed, supple feel and weight to the carry. The rich grain and pull up effect of Denali makes this bag feel worn in from day one, and will form nicely around whatever you might find yourself needing for your daily carry. The bag's architecture is built with heavy-duty seams and beefy 8/9 oz leather strapping in a complementary or contrasting color.
The optional pocket inserts keep your small items organized and close at hand, leaving the center of the bag available for your laptop, tablet, or files.
The Large No. 4320 is perfect for your daily work carry, or several days out of town. Roomy, with measurements of 16" wide x 10" tall x 4" deep, and with no flap closure to limit the amount you can pack into this bag, you can fit plenty, filling it to the top and then some.
The Standard No. 4320 works like a charm for someone wanting a smaller daily carry (13" wide x 8.5" tall x 3.5" deep), someone looking for a day bag, or a mailbag scaled down to an average purse size. Crafted from the same supple Denali leather, and with the same eye towards quality craftsmanship and durable materials, it's guaranteed for life just like our Large version.

Handcrafted in our Charlotte, NC studio.
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.
