Product Details

I was amazed to discover how vegetable-tanned leather gets better with age and horrified when I found out how many toxins are used in making industrial leather. These toxins not only adversely affect the health of the users, but their production also destroys the health of the people and ecosystem of where they're manufactured. That's why when we found out these beauties are made by people who make a living wage and with natural materials we couldn't resist.

Bags designed to last a lifetime! Fits all your files, lunch, plus a pair of emergency flats. Fits A4 sizes + 13" laptops. Large zippered inside pocket. Tapered sides to hold more. Additional zipper closure. 32 x 12 x 33 cm. Handle drop 21 cm.

Handmade vegetable-tanned leather bag & GOTS-certified organic cotton.

-tanned without the use of harmful chemicals and has no synthetic top finish

-no two bags are the same

-irregularity in color and texture make the bags charming & unique

-bags will not stay flawless rather age with beauty over time making it even more unique

-the shade of the leather evolves with use

-the leather is a living and natural material that ages

-colors deepen & develop a sheen

-colors also alter when exposed to sunlight & with handling

-with all of their leathers they advise being careful when wearing beside light clothing as there is no synthetic top finish (although I wear my crossbody every day for two years so far and have not experienced this happening)

-raw hides naturally display irregularities depending on the life circumstances of the animals (cattle live primarily outdoors & naturally come into contact with surroundings like hard-edged parts of plants and barbed wire; their skin is also affected by insects, growing, weight gain)

-all leathers tanned with natural solvents and have no synthetic top finish

-no chemicals such as chromium or bleach to erase marks, meaning the leather will keep its unique structure & irregularities

-the natural marks (or beauty spots) celebrate the unique character of each leather

-all leather is cow hide

-bags are designed to last a lifetime & the color will often change gradually over the years

-because there are no chemical dyes used or synthetic top finish, the open structure will evolve with use 

Consumers have the power to create change by demanding ethically made, toxin-free products. The company practices support safe work environments, fair wages & equal opportunities for women.

They are eco-friendly for their process but not for how they look & feel. The quality and style are not sacrificed because they are one and the same.

They believe they can change the world one bag at a time!


The company recently announced that due to international scarcity of raw materials in the last two years, prices in leather, cotton and fittings have increased; therefore they must also increase their prices starting the 1st of February 2022.

This natural leather has an open structure, which means that scratching will occur and irregularity in color and texture are a part of this leather; it develops into a unique item that will age beautifully over time.

Since the products are made from natural materials and are all handmade, it is possible that not all products are identical; color and shape can vary. Please be aware that this is inherent in the product and should not be a reason for replacement.
