Seasoned No. 820 - The Classic Handmade Leather Bag in our original Crazy Horse
This No. 820 was previously purchased by a long-time ColsenKeane customer, who began collecting our bags in 2013. His comment on this beautifully broken-in piece is that it has "seen a lot of miles." We think his travels with it have added a lovely patina and the leather has become soft and supple. It's been purchased back by us through our Bag buyback Program, reconditioned, and is now for sale through our Seasoned Collection. This leather in particular is our Original Crazy Horse, that introduced us to an entirely new genre of product.

About the No. 820 Classic Handmade Leather Bag: The dilemma: you want a bag that will take you from the office to the weekend. The No. 820 is perfect for that very lifestyle. It has the ability to hold your MacBook and files for the week, and a few books, iPad and sweater for the weekend. The satchel comes with an adjustable shoulder strap that can withstand the rigors of being thrown in the overhead compartment or being tossed in the backseat of the jeep. For versatility, we’ve added a metal hook on the side of the satchel so you can adjust the strap to convert to a sort-of back pack for the times you’d rather wear it on your back than over your shoulder. We engineered this satchel to be made from a single piece of leather with a 1.5" strap running through the body of the bag.
Approximate Dimensions: 10" x 14" x 4"
Adjustable Shoulder Strap Length: 46" - 50.5"
Handcrafted in our Charlotte, NC studio and guaranteed for life

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.
