Every material used in the process of creating a leather bag is tested for quality and durability.
We use local high quality cow hide. The leather is 3.8-4.0 mm thick, so it provides for long term use. For toning the leather we use professional horse saddle tan oil dye, and Carnauba palm leaf wax as the finishing on the leather. For water resistance and polishing we traditionally cover our bags with warm beeswax. For joinery we use antique brass single cap rivets and other necessary hardware, and for hand stitching, natural 4 cord linen thread.
