Now that you've bought a bag...
Congratulations on your full grain vegetable tanned handmade leather bag and welcome to the Linden Is Enough family!
We assume you know by now that the item you've just purchased is a truly authentic and high quality piece of leatherwork, but let's celebrate it again anyways!
The leather you have in hands is vegetable tanned. See that deep, natural, color and small variations? That's the beauty of veg-tanning. Enjoy your bag and cherish how it will age and change over time and use. We'd love to see how it patinas, as every bag is slightly different, so please post away and tag us so we can keep up.
It's also full-grain, remember? So those wrinkles that you see along the hide, those aren't imperfections. They're actually a sign of top quality! Full, or top grain, maintains the outer layer of the hide intact, which is the most durable as well. This means you are holding in your hands the true lifetime of the animal and all that makes it unique - we can't think of much else that could be more valuable.
This bag is made to last, so congratulations on shopping consciously and prioritizing quality and durability. Today you made a sustainable choice and that's something to be proud of!
So you own a Linden Is Enough leather bag. Now what?
Frequently Asked Questions
How to best care for my leather bag?
Our top tip definitely would be to make good use of the Linden Is Enough leather beeswax cream that came as a gift with your order. It’s completely natural and homemade and will work wonders on your leather, whether it’s a cow hide bag such as our duffles or messengers, or soft lamb leather as seen on our totes and smaller bags.
How do I use my Linden Is Enough homemade beeswax cream?
We recommend re-applying the beeswax cream every 3-6 months or after being exposed to water. Follow the steps bellow:
1) Make sure the leather is bone dry before using the cream.
2) Gently work a thin coat into the leather and seams using a soft, clean, and dry cloth.
3)Wipe off excess and buff to a shine with dry flannel cloth or horsehair brush.
How often you should condition depends on usage and climate, so make sure to pay attention to for example any brittleness or dryness developing.
Is my bag water resistant?
The short answer is: no.
We apply a thin layer of our homemade beeswax cream to each and every item which will to an extent weather proof your bag. Nonetheless, leather and water are not great friends and you should avoid getting your bag wet.
We work exclusively with vegetable tanned leather, which means you have an incredibly authentic and top quality bag. However, without that thick layer of finishing (or plastic) that you will find on more mass produced items your leather is more raw and exposed to your environment, so do take good care.
Should I keep my bag out of sunlight?
Leather is ultimately skin. Thus, just like your own, when vegetable tanned and kept natural and authentic, leather will tan and age in the sunlight. If you're happy with speeding the natural variations and patina that the sun will cause, no problem, but if you'd like to keep your bag its original color for longer, avoid direct sunlight.
Also, remember how the sun dries out your skin? Well, it will have the same effect on leather. Keep an eye on your bag and if you notice it's a bit dry or brittle, you can condition it with a thin layer of our beeswax cream.

I was a little worried that the medium would be too small and the maxi tote too large. In the end I wentbwith the maxi tote and it is absolutely perfect. It's so light and soft but I can also see that it is very sturdy and I am looking forward to having it by my side for years to come. The packaging was delightful, the leather balm is also a very thoughtful addition. Customer service was quick, thorough and easy to deal with. I received my order sooner than anticipated and I am delighted with it!
Beautiful leather bag and spacious - can tell it will develop a gorgeous patina with time.
Beautiful leather . And the bag goes easily from big to smaller . Amazing versatility . A very elegant and practical accessory.
Very much enjoy my tote so far. I live in the US and the package arrived on time and packed very carefully. I bought it mainly for when I travel. I can tell it’s made with high quality materials and I can tell it will be trekking the globe with me for many years.
Not only does this bag look and feel luxurious, it is the perfect size to carry all of my essentials as well as the child associated extras I need for day trips, hospital/dr trips etc.
Practical and beautiful! I love it and that it’s UK made! Thank you 🙏
I (27 M) have always wanted to find myself a good bag but have struggled to find anything I liked, always too small, too much going on, looks cheap like it was made in a sweatshop, but then I saw an ad for Linden and I knew instantly! And I was not disappointed, some things to know first though if you’ve made it this far, this is not a structured bag, unless it is filled to the brim it is not going to stand upright, and there are no internal pockets, for me that is no issue at all bc I wanted something like a market/tote bag, but just FYI. Amazing quality(the leather/stitching) , FAST shipping, the packaging feels special, and I’m absolutely in love with my bag, thank you Linden for making this product.
Delivered in what was probably the most well-wrapped delivery I've ever received, the tote is absolutely lovely. The leather feels nice and soft and the craftsmanship is fantastic.
The leather is so soft to the touch , bag has no logo which doesn’t clashes with any outfits . Size is perfect to dump my gym wear and work stuff all together to go
Absolutely love it
Soft Leather Medium Tote Yellow
The leather is beautiful and the size is perfect...I love it.
I’d been getting so many of Linden is Enough’s ads on this maxi tote and I’m so glad I gave it a try! The tote shipped quickly and was packaged nicely - the free leather balm is a nice touch! The bag is SO soft and lightweight, and the stitching looks great. I love that they have the option to add a zipper now! Makes the tote so much more secure and functional - thanks Linden team! Can’t wait to try your other products :)
It’s one of the most functional totes I have ever purchased💪🏻 Hoping to use it for a very long time
Wow! This bag is incredible! Leather is stunning, so soft, so lightweight and so comfortable unlike many high end designer totes that I have had in the past. This is the like the tote bag I have always been wanting but could never find. OMG I am so glad I found you. I will be adding more colours for sure. Black next for the winter.
