The beauty of veg tanned leather is that it will change colour quite naturally just through exposure to the sun. It also has a very smooth finish and to begin with is quite stiff. All this changes with use and in fact, this type of leather is known for its durability and is the standard leather used in traditional saddlery. This bag is lined with a West African Java waxed kitenge printed fabric. All buckles, ‘d’ rings and adjusters are locally sourced artisan-made brassware.
