This accessory is made of vegetable-tanned leather, a process of slow and traditional tanning derived from natural and biodegradable substances. Unlike tanning using heavy metals such as chromium, this leather is ethically and ecologically responsible, non-allergenic and is not harmful to the health of the farmers and those who work with it. This quality leather has natural colors, and will soften and develop a patina over time. Its authenticity can create slight irregularities on the surface of the leather (i.e. scarring, change in color and/or texture), giving each piece richness and uniqueness.
Vegetable-tanned leather strikes a balance between tradition, design, authenticity, quality and comfort.Your bag is made of fabric and leather. To protect it, Noujica recommends periodically applying a protective spray (available at a cobbler). If your bag gets wet, let it dry away from any heat source.
