Classic goat leather saddle bag, back from the old days.
This goat leather saddle bag has an old school appearance, yet it presents a modern design – probably one of our most metropolitan looking goat leather bags.
The magnets hide clips underneath to facilitate opening and closing. The 9” bag has a one front pocket below the flap, whilst the 13” is equipped with two, and big enough to fit a small laptop. Additionally they also have a zip pocket at the bag, good for keeping documents and other slim items handy and secured, close to your body.
The interior is fully lined with canvas, which combined with leather make for a pretty sturdy bag. Inside you will find extra smaller pockets and compartments to keep your items well separated.
The shoulder straps are long and adjustable.
INDIANA GOAT LEATHER BAGS
The Indiana range of goat leather bags was the collection that introduced Boheme/Rust into the world of satchels, messengers, duffels and other adventurous travel accessories of the kind.
Imported from various regions of India, Indiana Bags use full-grain, high-quality, 100% genuine goat leather as its core material, whilst using brass and canvas as secondary components. Naturally, the strength of these materials together make for strong and sturdy bags, that if taken care of, are made to last a lifetime.
A few tips for taking good care of your goat leather bag:
- Goat leather tends to age really well, with no treatment required. However, rubbing a little beez wax on a cloth can give it a little rejuvenation, plus it gives it a water proof layer;
- If caught in the rain, goat leather can protect your items, however if it gets soak wet do not attempt to quickly dry it near a heater or anything of the kind, as this will harden the leather. Just hang it and let the leather naturally dry.
- Use it! Keeping your leather bag stored in a dark closet may cause it to go mouldy. Beez wax can clean the mould if it’s not excessive, but the best medicine is to wear it – let breath, let roam, let it be free!
Please note that all of our bags are handmade. Unfortunately, this means that (sometimes) small pieces may give in over time, especially the brass components if you carry a lot of weight in the bag. On the other hand, fortunately, generally, this small breakages are easily fixed. If you have any issues with your bag, please do not hesitate in contacting us.
