Design & Maker Notes
The leather used for this ELK piece is sourced from a Leather Working Group rated tannery. The tannery has been independently assessed for sustainable business practices, with a focus on environmental performance, chemicals management and hide traceability.
Each of our leather pieces is handmade in India by family owned and operated factories. We visit these factories two to three times a year to assess working conditions, manufacturing processes and to see our goods being made. The leathers used are selected for their appearance, suitability and hand feel. Every component and element of our pieces are chosen for a reason. Linings, trims, findings and leathers are all carefully selected. Each design is both independently tested and internally tested by our production team, at Elk HQ. We use different types of leathers for different bags and the source of the skins varies from piece to piece. Most leathers come from New Zealand, India, South America or China.

Vegetable Tanned Cow Leather
Each hide will vary in finish. The vegetable tanned leather is washed which exposes the natural grain and variations in each hide.
To maintain the beauty of your Elk wallet we recommend protective sprays and using a good quality leather conditioner to treat the product, which will increase its longevity. Do not put leather pieces on the ground or rub against abrasive surfaces. Leather is a natural material and will wear with age and use.
