THE SHAFTESBURY WEEKENDER BROWN
Leather doesn’t really get better than this beautiful vegetable tanned leather with a soft waxy feel from the Tempesti tannery in Italy. This single main chamber holdall is made from one piece of leather with a re-enforced base and has contrast veg tanned strapping to support the bag itself and carry handles. This bag can be carried into the cabin on most airlines and will hold all you need for a weekend or overnight stay. One external pocket will keep your mobile and passport safe and can be accessed by un-clipping the Sam Browne stud or releasing the buckle. Two leather covered rope handles sit easily in your hand and the comfortable two-inch cotton shoulder strap is adjustable using the tri-glide.
Solid brass spring hooks, ‘D’ rings, Sam Browne studs and buckle all hand cast in England. Luggage grade YKK zip.
Hand stitched using 100% 'Tigre Thread’ for durability (Tigre is a brand name). Approx. 1500 saddle stitches and eight days in the making.
DYE and PROTECTION
Tannery dyed-through leather with tannery protection. Maintain as required with ‘Renapur Leather Balsam’ from shoe shops or Amazon. Try to keep the bag dry but if it gets wet, let it dry naturally away from heat. When dry use a little Renapur or Vaseline to soften.
