This bag does it all with just the right amount of detail and flair: it takes you from that big job promotion, to your overseas travels, to being a first-time mom. Plus—you can carry it 4 ways (crossbody, sling, backpack, and by the top handles). Chloe has just the right design, size, and vibe.


  • Convertible: Wear it 4 ways: crossbody, sling, backpack, or carry it by the top handles.
  • Versatile: Take it out at night, or slip your 13” Macbook inside for work.
  • Adjustable strap: Make the shoulder strap the right length.
  • Security: Zip-top closure and an exterior zip pocket.
  • Beautiful metal hardware: Our signature hardware plus protective feet.
  • Unique lining: To be more sustainable, all our bags are lined in deadstock fabric, which otherwise would have made its way to the landfill. Every bag is unique and linings may vary due to availability of each fabric.

Locating a Package

There's nothing worse than when your tracking number states that your package was delivered but you can't find it! Don't worry, we are here to help! Before reaching out to us, there are a few things to do:

  • Confirm the correct shipping address was entered on your order.
  • Check the tracking number to confirm that the package was delivered to your address and not a nearby Access Point.
  • Confirm that there are no activity log updates on the tracking number that state the item was returned to the sender.
  • Check your property thoroughly. Couriers will occasionally leave items in a discreet area to minimize the risk of package theft. It is often also helpful to check with neighbors.
  • If you live in a building with a concierge/mail room, confirm that they do not have it.

After going through the above list, if you still cannot find the package, please email us at within 14 days of the order showing as delivered. Please include your order number in your email. We will work with you and the USPS to determine next steps. We are happy to assist with loss claims, regardless of when they were filed, but cannot guarantee refunds or replacements for claims filed more than 14 days after the package was marked delivered.

Shipping Questions

If you have questions about shipping, or if you have not received your order in the allotted time, please email so we can help troubleshoot the issue.

Love leather that naturally ages and patinas over time? Our raw leather is made for you. Or do you love leather that maintains the color (especially the lighter colors) and uniformity similar to the day you bought it? Then our oil leather is your pick.

We have two kinds of leather at Sapahn: raw leather and oil leather, and regardless of which leather type you pick, our bags come with our Sapahn warranty.

Raw Leather

This is the classic full grain leather we’ve built Sapahn on. Each piece of leather is perfectly ‘imperfect’, carrying unique grain patterns with no surface alterations or splitting and an attractive matte finish. This type of leather showcases the beauty of the hide itself and could display variegation based on stretch marks, moles, etc. the cow earned throughout its life. 

Working with this kind of leather can be challenging and requires enormous skill to turn it into our gorgeous supple bags you see (if only we had a penny for every time someone told us the leather felt like butter). This kind of leather is particularly special because over time and use, each raw leather bag develops a distinct patina—a soft sheen—that is the hallmark of high-quality leather. The patina also gives your bag individual character that is 100% unique to you and your adventures.

Oil Leather

Our oil leather is our gorgeous full grain leather with a twist. After our classic tanning process, the leather is then coated with a protectant to give a more uniform vibrant color and provide a touch of water resistance. The oiling process gives these bags a striking glossy finish and also prevents them from developing patinas over time. This means YES, you can carry a light-colored leather bag and not be afraid of it getting dirty.


  1. Does the leather easily scratch?
    No. Small scratches easily buff out of raw leather. An exception is if the scratch is deep and penetrates beneath the top layer of the hide. Otherwise, subtle scratches will often work themselves out and become part of the patina glow. The same is true with our oil leather which—unless it is a deep it won’t show any subtle scratches.
  2. Will rain stain my leather?
    Raw Leather: This would be super rare. The water will make a mark on your bag while it’s wet. Avoid touching it and transferring dirt on it. Instead, let it dry.
    Oil Leather: the rain/water will just roll right off your bag. Towel it dry.
  3. What is the best way to clean spills?
    Raw Leather: Take a damp, soft cloth and try to remove the spill as soon as possible. To clean it further, we have had good results with Angelus cleaner and horsehair brush, that you can purchase here. It is key to test a small spot first as discoloration may occur. Again, not the fault of the leather. The discoloration will occur with any moist product touching any porous material. After the spot test, use it all over the bag. For best results, do not use multiple cleaners or products at a time.
    Oil Leather: One major benefit of our oil leather is it is very easy to clean. Use a damp cloth and rub the dirt or stain off the bag.
  4. How do I remove ink or dye from my bag: Unfortunately, ink is difficult and nearly impossible to remove. The same is true with blue jean dye. This is not a reflection of the quality of our leather, but the dye itself. Since leather is a natural, porous product, it will absorb things and inks and dyes are made to be permanent.
  5. Where is your leather sourced from?
    We use premium leather sourced from Thailand. Our leather is a bi-product of the food industry and are raised for meat/dairy not for their hides. It’s a beautiful thing to take what would be a wasted material and craft it into our gorgeous leather bags and give our artisans fair and meaningful work.

Gorgeous Bag

I am loving my Chloe bag! The quality is outstanding, the leather is butter soft, and it's absolutely gorgeous! I love telling people the inspiring Sapahn story, too.

So in LOVE with my Chloe!

I love everything about my Chloe - from the Ruby pink color, to the cheery lining, to the incredibly diverse functionality! I can use it as my purse, or a work bag on days when all I need to throw in is my laptop. Hands down my favorite Sapahn bag this far!!!!


Ask a Question
  • Is it possible to anchor the backpack strip so it won't slip?

    This is a great question. With this wide of strap it makes it hard to knot/anchor it through the hardware, but you could do this with the Pepper. Our designer will work on a solution for this for the future.

  • What is the weight of Chloe empty? Thanks!!!

    Great question - 2lbs.

  • How delicate is the raw leather? I want the cobalt blue but live in the north with snow and rain. Will the raw leather stain? Is there a strong blue in the oiled leather?

    Sapahn's raw leather will naturally patina over time, but it will not stain or cause marks with water alone. The darkness of the indigo blue will also hide dirt well, too. We've tested this out getting caught in Thailand during the rainy season and walk away with no spots or damage. We do have an oil leather called admirable blue that you also might consider. Happy to answer any further questions -

  • Good evening. The bag is stunning and appears well-made. Can you tell me, will the bag stand up on its own if you set it down?

    Hello! Thank you, and yes, you are right the bag is very well-made. The bag is on the slouchy side, so it will not stand up as a structured tote would, but with things in it, it will keep its shape sitting upright on the ground based on what you have in it. I hope that helps!

  • Can you fit a water bottle in the side pocket?

    Yes, it can fit a swell water bottle for example.

  • I am interested in ordering one of your bags using the black Friday discount, but it looks like I can't return it. I am trying to decide between the Linda Jean and the Chloe and am struggling with that decision.

    I'd LOVE to help you! First, rest assured you can return the bag if it doesn't fit your needs or you don't like it. Second, tell me a little more about what you're looking for in this purchase? Do you carry a computer? Do you need versatility in how you can carry the bag? The Chloe fits a 13" computer, and can be worn 4 ways - crossbody, sling, backpack and by the top handles. The Linda Jean can be carried by the top handles and worn as a shoulder bag or crossbody. The Linda Jean is not as deep as Chloe, and both bags have great interior pockets. I'm not sure if this is at all helpful, but I'd be happy to answer any questions via email: :)
