Hack travel bag horse leather
Unusual and rare. Horse leather travel bag
Hack uses very soft, supple pull-up horse leather for this sturdy, simple travel bag. The leather is waxed, which creates the so-called pull-up effect: when the leather is buckled, the buckled edges become slightly lighter. Through frequent use, it also develops a lively patina. Since horse leather is one of the most durable and long-lasting types of leather with high tensile strength, it can be processed here with a thickness of only 1 mm, which means that the travel bag has less dead weight than if other, thicker leather were used. Nevertheless, it has the typical sturdiness and thus does justice to its use. On the bottom, sides and corners, the body is additionally reinforced with leather trimmings. The topstitching is done with contrasting thread, also for the deerskin padding on the handles.
On the outside, a zippered pocket (19 × 26 cm) is integrated on one side, and a slip pocket (24 × 26 cm) on the other side, which can be closed with a snap fastener. Inside, the travel bag is lined with a plaid virgin wool fabric. On one side, three pen compartments (also made of leather) are sewn on, as well as a leather strap with a carabiner for keys, while on the other side, a leather slip pocket (W 29 × H 21 cm) holds small items. Thanks to the zipper running across the entire width, the bag can be opened wide.
Hack Lederware. Lasts Long, Ages Gracefully.
The man behind Hack Lederware is Christoph Hack, founder and fine bag-maker, who runs his own studio in Cologne. For over 30 years, he has been making hard-wearing, functional garments and simple accessories out of natural leathers from Germany, Italy and Scandinavia and robust canvas. The vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed leather is processed without an additional finish, irregularities are not concealed by dyes, leaving the surface open-pored and the structure clearly visible. Production takes place at the Hack workshop in Cologne or on the premises of a partner company in Poland.
