The Henge shoulder bag
THE HENGE SHOULDER BAG – DOGGED (Dark brown)
Looking for something uniquely different? You’ve found it. This leather is the hide of an African Kudu. The skins show all the signs of a tough life in the African bush. Scars and tears in the skin are evident and probably caused by fighting in the rutting season or perhaps accrued escaping predators, who knows for certain? Like all antelope skin the finished product is soft, tactile and overflowing with character. In the case of this Kudu the leather is 2.0 – 2.2mm thick and extremely strong.
Named the Henge because I imagine the first bag made by man may have resembled this, in shape at least. Certainly, the design could not be simpler and that’s where the beauty lies. The eye is drawn to the beautiful leather and not distracted by unnecessary detail. If you like simple practicality, this is the bag for you. Beautifully finished leather, soft and tactile yet strong for the purpose of holding day to day essentials. The single chamber has a YKK zip closure. The 30mm wide 100% cotton webbing strap is soft, strong, flexible, comfortable, generous, infinitely adjustable using the brass tri-glide and attached to the bag with sturdy copper rivets. Wear this bag across your body or hang it on your shoulder, it will be your friend for very many years to come.
Solid brass tri glide and copper rivets.
