We select our materials based on a balance of functionality, durability and their ability to age gracefully. We are also committed to making them environmentally sustainable – using fabrics made from recycled and plant-derived materials, and sourcing leathers with the least environmental impact.
We use leather for things like wallets and zip pulls, because it feels great in hand, and stands up to the test of time. And we only use the best leather we can source, from Leather Working Group gold-rated tanneries.
Sourced from specialist tannery, ECCO Leather, these leathers are tanned using their revolutionary DriTan™ technique. This innovative method harnesses the moisture in the hide, saving water and reducing chemicals. The result is a rich, durable leather that’s better on the environment.

BLACK / DARKWOOD / NATURAL / ARAGON
All of our leather comes from tanneries that have earned a gold rating from the Leather Working Group, meaning they’ve achieved excellence in environmental and labor practices. It also means our leather is premium quality, so it feels great, and ages beautifully.

Caring for your leather
WHEN LEATHER GETS WET
Whether you spill a drop, a drink or a bucket on your leather, gently wipe the excess moisture away with a clean cloth and let the leather dry on its own away from sunlight.
WHEN LEATHER GETS DRY
Rub an uncolored leather cream or conditioner through your leather to bring softness and depth back into it. Options made from natural ingredients only are best.
WHEN LEATHER GETS DIRTY
For stains, use a leather cleaner only. It’s also a good idea to apply leather conditioner after cleaning, and whenever you feel like the leather needs a bit of TLC. Remember to use conditioners that are suitable for aniline or semi-aniline leather.
Caring for your fabrics
To clean your fabric product, simply wipe it with a damp cloth. For more serious stains, look for a high grade multi-purpose fabric cleaner like you’d use on your sofa. Avoid detergents or bleach. And as tempting as it might be, never put it through the washing machine.
While our fabrics are durable and pretty excellent at resisting water and wear, it’s a good idea to keep sharp objects packaged up properly, should you need to carry them. Small cuts in the lining or exterior fabric will weaken the overall durability and resistance.
