The Silton Backpack
THE SILTON BACKPACK
Veg tanned, luxuriously soft leather with a waxy feel from Italy’s Tempesti Tannery. Sufficiently strong and large enough to carry your essentials for a gentle stroll or to hold your everyday work essentials. The two-inch (50mm) cotton shoulder straps are so comfortable you will hardly know you are wearing this backpack. The simple design coupled with the natural beauty of the leather epitomises the meaning of less is more.
Solid brass buckle, tri-glides and loops hand cast in England. Brass rivets.
Hand stitched using 100% 'Tigre Thread’ for rot resistant durability (Tigre is a brand name).
DYE and PROTECTION
Tannery dyed. Protection includes ‘Aussie Leather Protection’ for water and weather temperature resistance.
