Bicycle frame bag cowhide
In collaboration with our manufacturers, ideas for new products often arise, which we then put into practice together. With Greenbelts® we have developed a series of bicycle bags and accessories, for whose design we were inspired by the old Swiss army bags. Of course, the only material that came into question was the wonderful cowhide that is also used for the Greenbelts® bags.
Sturdy and weatherproof. Bicycle frame bag made of leather.
This extraordinary bicycle bag is part of a series of bicycle bags and accessories that we have developed together with Greenbelts®. The basis is the best vegetable-tanned and barrel-dyed cowhide, which has proven to be robust, durable and weatherproof in daily use, even under heavy use. However, the durability of the bag is not limited to the leather: solid metal fittings and accurate workmanship also ensure that the bag will last a lifetime of cycling with proper care. In terms of design, we took our cue from the old Swiss Army bags: simple and purely designed for purpose, solid and with the characteristic rivets and ball-button closures on the straps.
The bike bag is attached to the top tube of the frame by means of two leather straps with ball-button closures, and with a third strap it can be additionally fixed to the handlebar tube so that it does not slip during the ride. Convenient when you take off the bag again and longer time with it on foot: Optionally, a separately orderable shoulder strap can be attached, which turns the bike bag into a comfortable shoulder bag. The large, not further divided and unlined main compartment is easily accessible via the side zipper opening. Thus, the bicycle frame bag is waterproof in moderation, since nothing can run in from above. And it makes it difficult for thieves to access if you carry the bag with the opening on the body.
Greenbelts.® All-Natural Leather Products.
The Greenbelts® label manufactures all-natural leather products, produces them in a fair way and follows the idea of sustainability. The idea of founder Rolf Ihmels, who is behind the brand based in the Osnabrück region, is that this approach helps to ensure that owners may enjoy the leather products for a long time. Ihmels has been in the industry for decades and has his current profession in his genes, so to speak: His parents’ company made belts, although they operated conventionally. In 2005, Ihmels went into business with his own brand. Based on his commitment to sustainability, he chose no new building for the company’s location but one that had previously housed a carpenter’s workshop. Next to the offices, he has vegetable-tanned full-grain cowhide processed into belts and bags. Ihmels works exclusively with European tanneries that guarantee all relevant environmental standards and provide solid, honest leathers that need neither lining nor padding. You can feel, see and smell the leather’s quality in the finished product. Plus, such leathers can merge into the natural material cycle at the end of the product’s life. Ihmels feels every piece of leather he processes was once the skin of a living being and should be respected and honoured accordingly. For this reason, he does everything in his power to process the leather in a way that preserves its value over a long time.
