Bark-tanned leather bag.
This leather comes from the Allgäu and is vegetable tanned. What makes this bag so special is that the material is neither pressed, lacquered, nor coated with plastics - it is merely oiled and fulled. As a result the leather gradually acquires a unique patina when exposed to the sun and humidity. Initially, discolouration - caused, for example, by rain drops - can be smoothed over with a damp cloth until the patina develops. The zip is made of brass, the parts are bonded with a water-based latex. The only synthetic material used is the very strong thread stitching fibre.
