Since 2002 Heritage Brand has been handcrafting luxury leather items in Central Oregon. Originally focused on horse tack, they released their first handbag style The Marilyn Bag in 2019 which has since catapulted the brand’s success. Each $960-$8,500 piece is uniquely numbered, designed and handcrafted by a small team of artisans in their Tumalo location. The Heritage Brand Mission dedicates $50 from every handbag sale to charity — $100,950 was donated in 2021.
“It’s been a dream to someday have a facility of this caliber,” said Jessica Crouch, founder. “Something that elevates the community, employee and customer experience to such a degree. We’re extremely proud.”
Global demand for Heritage Brand items has caused shopping to be limited to in-person Private Shopping experiences and small online offerings. With expanded manufacturing capabilities in their new facility, the company is hoping to open their showroom to the public soon.
The press and public are invited to a Grand Opening celebration on Wednesday, August 17 from 5-7pm at 19885 Seventh Street in Bend. Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
