Here at Mountain Messenger Co., we believe that doing business doesn't mean we can't leave the world a bit better. We strive to use minimal and recycled or recyclable packaging.  Reducing our packaging reduces our environmental footprint and enables us to direct $15 from the sale of every bag to our Live Bravely Campaign to raise awareness and funds for the Shriner's Children's Hospitals of Canada.



My bag doesn't look like the picture on your website.

Because our bags are handmade, each bag is unique.  The bag you purchase will have its own colors and distinct markings.  Natural leather may have small scratches or flaws that are part of it's character.  Our leather is not dyed or varnished, and so these markings are easily visible.  If you don't like the idea of markings and flaws, you may want to order your bag from a retailer that offers colored varnished bags.


My shoulder strap or front closure straps are folded or my bag is squished.

Our bags are carefully boxed for shipping, but transportation can sometimes leaves the bag a bit flat, or a strap looking bent.  The easiest way to fix this is:

  1. Remove your bag from packaging
  2. Add a couple of heavy books or binders to your bag
  3. Hang your bag by the shoulder strap from a sturdy hook

For pocket flaps, pack with a small dry washcloth or other item to smooth out the leather and then let sit overnight.
