The Henge Shoulder Bag
THE HENGE SHOULDER BAG – WILD DEERSKIN - RUSTIC
Small artisan tanners and curriers working in the valleys of mid Europe, produce this beautiful leather from animals that have lived a wild and free life in the surrounding higher altitude scrublands. Using pure mountain stream water, they pit tan the skins over many months. The skins produced are amongst the most natural you will find and retain the cuts, grazes, insect bites and natural growth wrinkles that define the character of each skin. Every skin of course being different.
Super soft to handle and absolutely full of character. The exceptional colouration and grain of this leather is a joy to study and everyone loves the oily feel of this beautiful soft leather.
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 matching leather strap is soft, strong flexible, comfortable, generous, infinitely adjustable using the brass tri-glide and attached to the bag with attractive metal swivel hooks. 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 sail rings, swivel bag hooks in painted/plated metal.
