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. Also worth noting, due the nature of leather, it is expected that your products may change colour over time (for the better, we think), so we do not guarantee for the exact colour exhibited on the website, but an approximation.
