The Wardour Extra
THE WARDOUR EXTRA - NAVY
From the Badalassi Carlo tannery in Italy, this beautiful soft vegetable tanned leather has a patterned/raised grain which is natural, not printed and which varies across the hide. It has created a bag full of fabulous character. Coupled with all hand stitched saddle stitching in contrasting silver tigre thread, this really is a stand out piece.
This bag shares many of the dimensions of the popular standard Wardour but in addition has two main compartments plus a very useful zipped middle pocket. The high quality, simple and popular flip catch is not only attractive but very easy to use. The grab handle has a strip of reinforcing leather sandwiched between the two outer layers for strength and added comfort. The shoulder strap is infinitely adjustable using the brass tri-glide and is easily removed for extra versatility. Wear this bag across your body or on your shoulder when shopping but in the evening, use it as an elegant handbag.
Solid brass sail eyes, rivets and tri-glide shoulder strap adjuster, gold coloured flip lock, ‘D’ rings and ‘O’ rings.
Hand stitched using 100% polyester ‘Tigre Thread’ for durability. Approx. 1200 saddle stitches.
