The Masure tannery in Belgium has a reputation worldwide for producing the best high quality full grain, vegetable tanned leather. That is where we source our leather from. The leather we use is 100% true vegetable tanned, the old fashioned way, and contains no chrome whatsoever. We only work with thick hides of no less than 2,3mm. this does make for stiff bags but it also makes for satchels that will easily bare years of wear and tear. The leather does soften through time and use, usually within the first six months. This particular vintage leather has had oils pressed into it. This contributes to the pull effect of the leather. The vintage look that we all love. The leather easily shows marks but a quick thumb rub and the mark will fade. The vintage leather will lighten as the oils dry up, if you would like you leather to remain dark, you simply need to wax it using a clear wax or leather nourishing cream.
