Frequently Asked Questions
The item I want is sold out, will you be making more?
We carefully handcraft small batches ofour classic color collections (Honey, Espresso, Black, Cognac). If we're sold out, use the "get notified" link on the product page and we will let you know when we're restocked. Please note, we are a small company, so it make take us longer to restock our collections. Our limited edition colors are released twice a year and we only make a few of each color. If there is HUGE demand, we'll bring them back, but otherwise once they're gone, they're gone for good.
How can I treat stains & protect my leather goods?
Your Lyons Leather Co. are made with premium vegetable-tanned cow hide. This means they will get a beautiful patina over time and every scratch or stain will blend together. We do suggest adding our waterproofing service to most of our products. For more information on how to protect your leather goods, please see our leather care basics.
How do I know if the adjustable straps will fit me?
The straps of The Original Bees and The Biggie Bees are easily adjusted using heavy duty snaps.
- The regular Bee straps extend up to 52" long and decrease to 27" circumference, including the body of the bag. If you wear an XXS-M, these straps should fit. You can also adjust the straps to be smaller around your waist by looping any excess through the o-ring.
- The regular Biggie Bee straps extend up to 54" long and decrease to 29" circumference, including the body of the bag. If you wear a XXS-L, these straps should fit.
If you need longer straps, select the L-XXL option and you can sign up to get notified when our new Extended Straps are available (Spring 2024).
To see which size strap to get take a measuring tape and measure around your bust at a diagonal (crossbody) and around your waist (waist pack).
What is the size difference between The Bee & Biggie Bee?
The Original Bee is our smallest pouch, designed for anyone who wants to upgrade their sporty crossbody. It fits the daily essentials: sunglasses, hand lotion, Daily Wallet, large phone, keys (hooked outside on o-ring using the Keychain), chapstick, etc. It is the perfect small, lightweight bag for travel, concerts, festivals, etc.
The Biggie Bee is our medium pouch, designed for aspiring minimalists who want to downsize their large bag. The Biggie Bees fit sunglasses or readers, hand lotion/sanitizer, Travel Wallet, large phone, snacks, keys (hooked outside on o-ring using the Keychain), chapstick, a small packable water bottle or diaper and wipes. It is perfect for for daily usage when you need a bit extra space, but you still want something lightweight and sleek.
How to wear your Bee
Using the snap straps, you can easily adjust to wear as a crossbody, waist pack or shoulder bag. Simply find the size setting and snap all the way around. Wear with the flat side of the snaps facing forwards to make it cuter!
How to pack your Bee
Use the front panel pocket for glasses (lose the case to save space), use the back panel pocket for phone. Place small valuables in the zipper pocket, Daily Wallet in the pocket with leather tag, and chapstick in the holster.
