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, which mostly use 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 flaws. Due to the natural origin of the tannins, a leather gains more character over time and usually becomes darker. Appropriate care of leather parts with special fatty products will make those bags long lasting and serve you for many years.
All of the tanneries selected by Urstil meet the highest technical and environmental standards.
The 100% wool felt is manufactured in Germany and due to its high density and thanks to the natural properties of wool, it is water-repellent.
The bag will stand the light rain. However, if your demand for weather resistance is higher, you should use an impregnation spray of your choice. Please pay attention to the materials for which this spray is intended or buy a bottle here in the shop.
For the care of sensitive vegetable-tanned leather, we also offer a high-quality agent that does not rub off on the clothing.
