Only Premium Leather

We only source full-grain bovine leather, which is known to be the best quality, strongest and durable type of leather. Our leather is a by-product of the farming industry in Nariño, Colombia, a region rich in nature with mild climates which produce the finest leather in Colombia.

After years of travel and nostalgia for its homeland, Bomboná has given the carriel saddlebag a new life: elegance, subtlety and style. I invite you to get to know the brand and fall in love with it like I did!​
from Colombia
I am in love with Bomboná's carriel bag. It has an original design, great quality, an adjustable and comfortable strap and it goes well with any outfit. The bag comes in its dust bag making it easy to store and protect. I got my carriel bag during on sale and got a free wax to maintain the leather. Highly recommended!
from Bolivia
Amazing quality, the right size for both my purse and my iPhone 12!
from Taiwan
This is my favourite carriel bag from Bombona. I wore it nonstop while I was on holiday. I highly recommend it if you're looking for a resistant and long-lasting handbag. Every day, I store my keys, lipstick, water bottle, wallet, sunblock, and other essentials.
from London
The most beautiful and creative pice of art transformed as anew piece of trendy fashion. I love the concept behind the brand, helping people who has been affected because of the conflict in Colombia now is learning a new way to work and support their families!

We offer free worldwide shipping on all orders. Your order will be carefully packaged and delivered wherever is most convenient for you.

We want you to have your new Bomboná as soon as possible, so in-stock items typically ship out 1-2 business days after the order is placed (or if it’s a pre-order, then on the date specified on the product page).

Yes, we only use natural leather from Nariño, Colombia, a region rich in nature with mild climates which produce the finest leather in Colombia. All of our products are made with full-grain leather, known to be the best quality, strongest and durable bovine leather and some of our signature carriel bags also include natural cowhide.

Yes, we only use natural cowhide and do not alter its natural designs, meaning that you will get a totally unique bag with an unrepeatable cowhide design. 

Please note that we have classified our carriel bags into 7 different cowhide patterns – each individual bag will have similar colors, but its cowhide pattern might vary slightly from the photo.

Full-grain leather is the highest quality type of leather, made from the top grain of the hide, which includes all of the natural grain and markings. It is the most authentic, durable, and breathable leather.

Full-grain leather is the most durable, authentic and breathable type of leather. It also improves over time and can last for decades. It is also considered to be the most natural looking, as it retains all of the natural grain and markings of the hide.

  • Clean with a dry cloth and leather cleaner.
  • Use a dust bag to keep the leather intact and stuff the bag with soft items or an organizer for it to keep its shape.
  • Store the bag in a dry place away from the sun (suggest to store it upright or flat- do not hang the bag as this will damage the handle and could misshape it).
  • Avoid putting other objects on the top of your bag to prevent the leather from getting deformed.

Full-grain leather has a natural leather smell which is often described as musky, earthy or animalistic. This smell is caused by the natural oils and fats present in the hide.

Bomboná carriel bags weigh between 0.7- 0.8 kilos, so they are a lot lighter that the traditional Colombian carriel bags.

We have purposely adapted the design to be more versatile and have included 3 internal compartments and 2 zippered pockets, reducing weight while retaining practical functionality.

Yes, your folding umbrella will fit inside the carriel bag and you will still have space for your cell phone, small wallet or pouch, keys and glasses.

We process our orders very quickly and unfortunately cannot typically make changes after an order has been placed. If you notice the mistake straight away, though, please send us an email at “” to see if a modification can be made.
