Made with Deadstock Leather
We source our leather from fashion industry leftovers.
Every year, 6.3 million tons of textiles are wasted during the design and production process. Because leather is a natural product, full of defects, off grain, stretch/ growth/ injury marks, 12-15% can be wasted during the production and manufacturing process. For one single medium size tannery, for example, that could mean 20,000 square feet of "deadstock" leather every month. We work with these skins to keep them in circulation and out of landfills, delivering a product you'd never know was made from waste.
I almost didn't buy this because it's a hair smaller than what I was initially looking for. The thing is, I generally prefer to not carry a bag if I can get away with it. Whenever I do carry a bag, I tend to overstuff it. This small bag works great for me because it forces me to carry only the essentials (and hence spares me a backache). It's perfectly fits my ID, credit card, migraine meds, gift cards, birth control, chapstick, phone, keys, and sun/glasses kept in a soft case. I may see if I can get the strap shortened a bit so that I can wear it as a belt bag as well. Great purchase - glad I went for it! Only downside is the leather is already showing a little wear after carrying this bag pretty much nonstop for the past 2 months. I hope it lasts!
Very nice material, but to send it to Europe, is very expensive. The cost is almost the same as the bag. Is was not mentiond
Thanks so much for your feedback! Shipping is charged at actual at checkout and as per our International Shipping Policy, all duties and taxes are the responsibility of the customer. We don't make the charges! So sorry if that was not clear.
Even more beautiful in person, looks and feels very high quality. Shipping was super fast and easy to track. I will definitely be purchasing from Hyer Goods again.
