- Founded by self-taught designer and maker Margaret Hennessey in 2015, each bag is made to order in Margaret’s Durham, NC studio.
- Leather is sourced from Chicago-based tannery Horween or local distributors who sell overstock and high-quality second Horween leathers from American tanneries—this means all Margaret Hennessey bags are limited edition due to material availability. By helping to cut unnecessary waste from the supply chain, this is a more environmentally friendly way to access leather that would otherwise end up in landfill.
- Leather varies between chrome and vegetable-tanned depending on the style and is described on each individual product page on the Margaret Hennessey website for full disclosure.
- Straps and zipper pulls are made from vegetable-tanned leathers.
