This is an authentic, handcrafted, vintage leather cross body men's purse made using the best quality full grain leather. The hides we use are no less than 2,5mm thick and the reason being is that we need our satchels to hold and maintain their shape throughout the years. We pride ourselves in making leather bags that are beautiful but that, most of all, are practical and made to last for decades.
We started manufacturing leather bags in the 1920's and so working with thick hides is an art slowly mastered over the last hundred years. Our threads, fitting, zippers are all especially made to fit and serve our leather. One thing you may notice, when your bag arrives on your doorstep, is that it might be a little stiff. This is normal. Vegetable tanned full grain leather softens through use, so the more you wear your satchel, the better it will look and feel.
Our leather is known to age beautifully. It will collect the marks of its adventures and develops a patina with time. The vintage, oiled colour of our satchels, through which the veins and marks of the leather are just barely visible, is obtain through a vegetable tanning process. It is the only ecological tanning process and is 100% chrome-free. But beware, because even if our leather has no undesired effect on your health it is likely to provoke jealousy among your friends. Should this be the case, we invite you to direct them towards us immediately.
Although compact this purse is deceptively roomy with two compartments and one front pocket. All your belonging: wallet, glasses phone. . . will easily find a place in it and the protection that our thick full grain leather will offer them is incomparable.
The shoulder strap supplied is detachable and adjustable.
Refrain from wearing a white coat with this purse for the first three weeks as the oils in the leather will not have settled yet and might stain light clothing. This is just a precaution as your purse might arrive already dried with the oils settled, it all depends on how close to dispatch your bag was made.
