U-lock holder cowhide
In the collaboration with our manufacturers often also ideas for new products arise, which we then jointly put into practice. With Greenbelts® we have developed a series of bicycle bags and accessories, for the design of which we have been inspired by the old Swiss army bags. As a material, of course, only the wonderful cowhide leather, as it is also used for the Greenbelts® bags, came into question.
Hold for bike lock - on the luggage rack
Usually U-locks are mounted exactly at the point of the bicycle frame, which is intended for the bottle holder. Or bottle and lock collide when both protrude into the frame. With this leather U-lock holder you get around the problem easily by attaching the U-lock holder to the luggage rack. For this purpose, it is equipped with two leather straps and ball button closures. The lock itself is also held by means of leather straps and ball-button system. It allows variable settings and is therefore suitable for various U-lock models.
Durable and solid
The U-lock holder belongs to our bike accessories series, which we have developed together with Greenbelts®. The basis is strong, vegetable-tanned and barrel-dyed cowhide. Robust, durable and solidly finished, it proves itself even under heavy use, and even a rain shower can not harm the lock holder. However, to keep the leather supple, you should treat him from time to time a little care.
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.
