Our bags are all completely handmade, every cut, punch and stitch is done by hand in our workshop in Derbyshire. Hand stitched using the traditional method of saddle stitching, no two backpacks are exactly the same but you can be guaranteed of our high standard and classic style.
Our backpack consists of one large section and a slim internal pocket to keep smaller items close to hand such as your mobile or train tickets. Secured with a tuck lock clasp under the buckle for that extra security and finished with the coloured metalwork of your choice. The straps of the backpack are adjustable using the buckles and also completely removable by simply unhooking the lobster clasps to give your bag a whole new look!
Add the finishing touch by deciding which coloured thread you would like your bag to be sewn in. The bag shown in the images is finished with golden brown thread.
Your options are:
Dark Brown - A classic deep colour
Golden Brown - The golden hue of this thread shows well against the black as seen in our images!
Cream White - A natural and bright thread that really shows off each stitch!
Pure White - A stark contrast against the black leather that creates bold lines of stitching
Black - Blends into the black leather for a subtle finish
Choose the colour of the metalwork you wish your bag to be finished with, choose from Antique Brass Colour - as shown in the images. Or Silver Colour.
This backpack is made from a beautiful black leather. Thick and sturdy with a smooth corrected grain which adds unique texture to the leather showing creases, scratches and curves, theses only add to the character of each bag! The underside of this leather is also mainly smooth, there may be small sections of softer suede like areas due to the cut of these hides.

Leather ages naturally over time, ingrained with all your memories and travels together as part of its patina. Try to avoid getting your leather wet, if it does, wipe clean with a cloth and allow to dry out naturally. If your leather begins to crack using techniques such as leather moisturisers or oils can help soften it. Be sure to test any product on a small area that isn't easily visible as some may cause slight discolouring.
Please note due to computer screens colours/ brightness real colours may vary slightly.
