Forget the pastels. Slate Gray is turning out to be the most delightful new color for spring, especially if it’s the new Slate D&Co. Tannery Cross Body Bag. It’s the perfect accessory to complete your Easter outfit.

Dresden & Company expanded its stunning collection of American-crafted leather bags this month to include Slate as an option along with our original Mocha. Along with introducing a new color, our talented partners added a third bag to the lineup they create exclusively for us in small batches from individual pieces of American-sourced leather.

“The soft gray leather with natural leather accents that we selected is just light enough to be the perfect complement to everyone’s spring look,” said D&Co. Creative Director Michael Kennedy. “It’s a color that looks great with everything – from washed denim jeans to a spring Easter outfit.”

The newest bag in the collection is an ideal size for your essentials and has a zipper closure with the company name embossed into a leather fob. It has an adjustable strap that allows the bag to hit along your hips, where your keys, wallet, sunglasses and more are easily within reach.

“The leather has such a soft feel and smells so good. It truly does hug my hips and the best part — I’m not continuously adjusting the strap. It stays in place,” said D&Co. Team Leader Judy Wise of Indiana.

Our beautiful leather bags appeal to a variety of age groups. The Large Leather Bag is a wonderful accessory for the person on-the-go to carry their laptop for work. It is also a way to carry your lunch and your laptop for that “lunch-and-learn” you want to attend.

Michael said everyone fell in love with the D&Co. Tannery Collection last fall, especially the way the bags are masterfully crafted in America in a seven-step hands-on process. The leather is cut by hand and the contrasting leather handles are hand riveted to the leather using solid brass hardware.

What I also love about the collection is their pure and simple designs. They are very modern in silhouettes, but the details are very traditional in how the designs are crafted,” he said.

That modern, yet traditional feel will last for years to come and the bags will be treasured favorites wherever life’s journeys take you.

If it’s hard to decide which bag to get, talk to your D&Co. Pro to find out how you can get one at the Insider Price and the second at half price. Picture yourself carrying the Large Leather Bag and the Cross Body Bag. You’ll be writing your style story.
