Thanks to the natural water-repellent properties of the wool, this bag can withstand a light rain. However, if your demand for weather resistance is higher, you are welcome to use an impregnation spray of your choice (please pay attention to the materials for which this spray is intended before buying / using it). You can also buy a suitable spray here in the shop.
For the care of sensitive vegetable-tanned leather, we also offer a high-quality agent that does not stain clothing. You can also use neutral, non-dyed leather grease. However, allow the grease to soak into the leather for a day so that the grease residue is not transferred to the clothing.
When choosing our materials, quality, sustainability and transparency come first, which is why we only use vegetable-tanned leather from Italy and pure merino wool felt from Germany. The vegetable tanning process is very time-consuming and environmentally friendly in comparison to conventional industrial processes, in which for the most part harmful substances, such as Heavy metals. Leather made in this way maintains its natural liveliness. Small scars and color differences are therefore quality features and not a flaw. Due to the natural origin of the tannins, a leather gains more character over time and usually becomes darker. Appropriate care with fat means that the leather and your bag are preserved for years.
All of the tanneries selected by Urstil meet the highest technical and environmental standards.
