Cowhide Bag by Greenbelts®
Daily companion. For a lifetime.
This bag is made of strong (2.2 mm thick), vegetable-tanned cowhide Greenbelts® - the surface of which feels almost butter-soft and supple. Outside and inside the bag shows clear lines and edges: The leather is open-edged and unlined. Only a topstitched seam runs along the edges of the strap, lid and body, giving additional shape.
The large interior compartment has space for A4-sized documents, it is divided by a flutter wall, in which a small zipper compartment and a slip pocket are integrated. Another zippered compartment is located on the outer back wall. A leather clasp covers the snap closure, which allows the bag to be opened and closed easily and quickly.
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.
Please note that the bag is processed unlined, so the velour side inside may initially fuzz or rub off a bit, as with other leathers. The color on the outside may rub off on light colored clothing.
