AN EASY TO MAKE AT HOME PROJECT
This DIY backpack kit comes with everything you need to make a beautiful, timeless bag in high quality Italian premium vegetable tanned leather. There is no hand or machine stitching involved in the process - you will weave leather pieces together to create your bag. An easy-to-follow instruction booklet with diagrams and a make along video tutorial will guide you through how to make a backpack.
CAREFULLY SOURCED LEATHER
All the leather we use is a by-product of the European food industry and comes from Italian or Belgian tanneries. In the leather backpack kit we use vegetable tanned leather which is preserved with botanical extracts from Mimosa, Québracho and Chestnut barks. Vegetable tanning is a slower, kinder means of production that has less impact on the environment, and results in a stronger leather where the fibres of the original skin are preserved.
We have carefully sourced the very best leathers we can find for our handbag making kits. Leather is a natural product. Every hide is unique and will have tonal variations, marks or scars which are natural features of the leather. Over time, your stitchless backpack may age beautifully into a unique item you can cherish for many years.
