As these skins are hand printed each spot will vary and will not be completely uniform. Also the natural structure of the hide will see hairs varying in length. No two pieces are alike.
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, we do not use Indonesian sourced leathers.

We have used a special leather for this item and due care is required to keep it looking its best. The hides have been individually dyed and each piece is handmade giving it unique characteristics. Please avoid rough treatment or rubbing the surface to prevent the hairs from breaking. You can gently use your hand to brush loose or messy hairs back into place. Avoid contact with light coloured clothing as some colour transfer may occur. Do not wet the item or place in front of direct heat sources. Please avoid placing it on the ground or on rough surfaces.
