Kids Backpack Cowhide
Healthy and strong
A beautiful back can delight us - a healthy back even more so, because it is the most beautiful. As long as our children explore and conquer the world, but please with a backpack that allows them a healthy posture.
This backpack meets the basic ergonomic requirement: it sits high and close to the back thanks to individually adjustable shoulder straps, so that the child can keep his straight posture and is not forced into a hollow back. How useful a bag carried on the back is was already known to those military men who covered long distances on foot with their so-called knapsacks on their backs - yes, the bag shape originated in the military, but fortunately it has since been put to completely peaceful uses. With a wink, the knapsack was also called "monkey", probably because it clings so intimately to the back of its wearer.
The padding of its back and shoulder straps ensures that this backpack neither presses nor chafes. Its light weight also contributes to the carrying comfort: At just under 1.2 kg, the children's backpack is even lighter than many a standard satchel made of polyester. Its capacity is nevertheless considerable: the undivided main compartment patiently holds a friend's book, a lunch box for the hike, a collection of games and other essential items up to A4 size, the attached slip pocket keeps a wallet and house keys handy, for example, and two pen compartments keep favorite writing utensils safe and secure. A tip for healthy carrying: your child should stow the heavy things like the soccer encyclopedia close to the back, and the light ones like the dangling doll further out, away from the back.
In leather, the children's backpack looks extremely strong and solid despite its relatively low weight. The individual cuts of the 2-2.4 mm thick cowhide are processed with open edges and carefully stitched in saddle stitch. This type of processing on the one hand increases stability and durability of the bag, on the other hand it allows its repair in case of an accident. Some seams may wear through after years of use, but the strong leather will last well beyond childhood and adolescence. Purely vegetable tanned, the cowhide is not further dressed, so it is neither dyed nor waxed, leaving its natural grain visible. Over time, it will also develop the leather-typical, beautiful patina, which tells of an eventful childhood full of adventures.
Leather from passion. For four generations
Founded as a manufactory for saddlery and equestrian articles, the Ludwigsburg family business Leder-Wolf has steadily expanded its repertoire since 1892 and now produces leather goods of all kinds. Central components since the 1960s and 1970s are briefcases and presentation folders, which are mostly manufactured according to individual customer wishes, as well as bags and small leather goods made of natural leather - at that time Leder-Wolf was among the first to produce such natural leather goods in Germany. The company has remained true to its production location in southern Germany to this day: Because that is just as much a part of the company philosophy as the attachment to the craft tradition of the "fine saddler". From generation to generation, the knowledge of this is passed on and the leather is processed to this day in the best saddler manner.
Ecologically responsible, outstanding craftsmanship
Also in the material one remains true to proven. For this backpack, vegetable-tanned cowhide is used, which means that only natural raw materials are used in the tanning process. This makes the leather particularly skin-friendly and at the same time resistant to external influences. Moisture or temperature fluctuations can do as little harm to it as the swinging, energetic handling in the sometimes rough everyday life. Nevertheless, it will develop with time and use an individual patina, as is typical for good leather.
