This is a two-layered waxed cotton tote with premium leather handles, traditional copper rivets, and two different orientation possibilities: it can be rolled down to keep the rain out or the top can be folded down to create an open top (the snap buttons to seal it are still accessible)! The waxed cotton is very water resistant, and even if the outer layer's wax wears down there's a good deal of wax sandwiched between the layers, which keeps your stuff dry. The cotton can be rewaxed like a Barbour jacket. Materials: British Waxed Cotton, Copper Rivets, High Tensile Strength Thread
We produce leather goods right here in Malmö using organic natural vegetable tanned leather from Tarnsjö Garveri in Sweden, fine British waxed cotton, 100% copper rivets, and 100% brass hardware. Everything is carefully handmade; we hand sew using waxed linen thread or use an old Husqvarna sewing machine from the thirties with high tensile strength thread for long lasting quality.
In terms of design, we try to use the fewest stitches possible and only add the most basic decorative details. Simplicity and functionality is key in our aesthetic. Dieter Rams (the German functionalist genius that revamped the entire Braun product line in the 1960’s) developed ‘the ten commandments of good design’, which we try to honour as much as possible.
The leather used will get more supple and darker with age, making each piece very personal for the user. The patina comes to represent the user’s journey through time, perhaps through a rainstorm or perhaps through sunshine!
