Design & Maker Notes
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.
Size & Fit
H30 x W41 x D9 cm
A durable bag. The nylon is forgiving for wet items and can be wiped clean.
This bag contains natural leather as well as durable, easy care nylon. While the Nylon is easy to care for, the leather used has natural subtle variations in colour and texture due to the nature of the material. These are not faults, but part of the natural quality of the skin. To maintain the beauty of the leather panels on this piece, we recommend protective sprays and using a good quality leather conditioner to treat the hide, which will increase its longevity.
