The Silton Backpack
THE SILTON CLASSIC BLUE BACKPACK
English aniline chrome tanned leather combining beautiful, luxuriously soft leather with a waxy feel and a distressed, rugged appearance on the outside. Charles F Stead & Co are famous for their suede leather and innovative methods of tanning which produce such high-quality suede leathers unique to them. The inside of this bag show cases their skill with suede and is truly luxurious. Sufficiently strong and large enough to carry your essentials for a gentle stroll or to hold your everyday work essentials. The two-inch (50mm) matching leather shoulder straps are comfortable and adjusted using the solid brass tri-glides. This simple design coupled with the natural beauty of the leather epitomises the meaning of less is more.
