    The Creation


    Jen Black Designs products are handmade and created from the highest quality Brazilian hides and leathers. Each piece is carefully inspected and cut, incorporating the beautiful natural colors. The handles of the cowhide bags are Amish made horse bridle reins adding quality and longevity, as well as a classic chic look. The cowhide bags are hand stitched with durable shoe-grade cording. The interior lining fabrics are matched to complement the colors and patterns of the hides. The artistic eye of the designer determines the WOW factor and POP, creating a handbag any woman would be proud to carry. The exterior bottoms are solid chrome leather and "feet" are added to extend the life to your favorite bag.


    All Jen Black Designs products are personally branded with a real branding iron with her logo. Made in America, Made in Vermont.


    No animals died for their hides. All hides are by-product of food industry. The "hair-on" hide is a special process that allows the hair to stay intact.


    Knowing this, with excessive use and/or rubbing, the natural consequence will result in the hair falling out. This can be avoided when taken special care of your favorite bag. Returns for repair due to failure of construction are granted for up to 6 months from purchase date. Returns are not granted due to hair falling out. The hides have been processed to withstand wear, but because it's a natural product, excessive wear and rubbing eventually will lead to hair loss.

    "I purchased my medium cowhide purse about three years ago. Thought I would use it as a winter bag only, but I carry it all year(change it up sometimes) Perfect size, 14"X 8" which is big enough for what I need, also very easy to find what I have in my bag.


    The bag has held up beautifully, the cowhide still looks fresh and clean and the fabric lining is still in great condition.


    Lastly, I have never ever, had so many compliments on a purse!


    Thank you, Jen!"

    "I purchased a JBD wallet in a hair on cowhide - I've never loved a wallet as much! Big enough to use as a clutch if needed, but fully functional as a wallet. Love it! Took a bit for the snap to wear in, but now - perfection. I've never gotten so many comments and inquiries over a wallet before - this piece definitely intrigues people! Purchasing a JBD piece is a smart move - make sure you have JBD business cards - you'll need them!"

    What's even better is when you see those same people months later still using and loving those gifts. It's just perfection!!! Thanks Jen!!!"
