All our leather bags are handmade from genuine leather by skilled artisans in India. Using real leather means that you may find creases, small marks or blemishes on the bags and some small differences in colour from the bag shown, this is the natural character of leather and we really like the unique quality it gives to each bag. Don't worry, we wouldn't send you a bag that we wouldn't love to own ourselves.
The leather is protected with natural oils to give it a lovely rich finish and make it hard-wearing. Our leather bags are intended to get even better with age; the leather will soften and the bumps and knocks they will get will mean more character - we love a bag that can tell a story of its travels!
We are delighted to be working with a new Fair Trade partner, Conserve India, who are the producers of our new range of leather bags. Conserve India was born out of a desire to reduce India’s mountain of waste and there is a strong emphasis on recycling and repurposing of materials all while improving the lives of some of the poorest people in India. It employs and trains hundreds of people from Delhi’s most disadvantaged communities to create beautiful products from the waste and the profits are put back into the same communities to improve education and welfare.
