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 bucket bag 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. 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 bag may age beautifully into a unique item you can cherish for many years.
