We work with an Italian tannery that supply our beautiful vegetable tanned leathers a more natural process of tanning leather, which is Chrome free. These full grain leathers have no synthetic covering and are sensitively finished with oils and waxes. Vegetable tan leathers darken and develop with exposure to light, and this natural aging process gradually enhances the personality of your bag.
Take care not to over-fill your bag as this will cause it to loose shape and weaken the handles over time. When you’re not using your bag, stuff it with bubble wrap - it doesn’t attract the moths like tissue paper - and store it in the provided dust bag. Leather is like skin and needs to be looked after - dependent on your use we recommend once to twice a year to use a natural beeswax to keep the leather protected. Babywipes are good for keeping the leather clean, never scrub it, but gently buff the surface.
We recently found blogger, Alden Wicker following an interview that she had written about the H & M sustainability manager, (worth reading if you have not read it.) Alden reviewed a few of our styles, in this case Mia on her blog about Sustainable Style, "It’s the perfect size for your essentials: wallet, phone, sunglasses and keys. After carrying it around for the day, I absolutely love it. It’s timeless, classic, and will fit perfectly into a capsule wardrobe."(Please note we also gifted this bag)
