The Challon cross-body leather bag blends sophistication and practical design. The base model for this family of handbags is a traditional clutch, however, we have expanded the volume with increased base depth. The angled flap and cross-strap closure gives the Challon its sleek aesthetic, even if it’s hiding a mess of makeup, kids’ snacks and unmentionables inside.
The Mini Challon is a petite version of our classic Challon handbag. Perfect for the essentials, Ceri carried it throughout the Fall, grateful that its small frame limited the clutter she could carry. Despite its size, the Mini Chalon still feels substantial thanks to strong line and premium leather. For the cool girl, running down the street in New York; or the girl in denim shorts, biking around the boardwalk in LA— this is the bag you’ve been looking for.
This signature handbag comes in several leather options and colors. Sturdy and thick with a subtle shine, our premium calfskin leather (Moss, Pacific Blue, Stone) grows softer as it ages, adding to allure and character. In deerskin (Cream), the bag arrives soft to the touch, with a natural pebbled look, thanks to the delicacy of the leather. In our premium cowhide (Marigold), offers supple, buttery texture of a classic leather. And in Black Nubuck, the bag features buffed, soft fibers that offer additional dimension. At this level of quality, our leather handbags made in America easily become an heirloom for your children and grandchildren to wear long into the future.
When it comes to caring for our leather, know that each hide has unique color and grain variations, which reveal the leather’s natural beauty. Leather darkens over time, depending on frequency of wear and exposure to sunlight. Scars or marks are natural attribute of naked leather, which will enhance the patina as it adapts to your lifestyle. When necessary, we recommend using a leather cream (we like Leather CPR) to maintain the leather’s vivacity.
