Made in Belfast Since 1962

The reason to care

All our satchels are made from natural leathers. The leather may show slight imperfections, but this is a testament to the handcrafting techniques used. Due to the very nature of leather, it will age with time. The ageing process is further accelerated through use as our hands will absorb the moisture and oils from the leather. However, with regular care and attention, your satchel will last a lifetime.

How to care

  • When not in use, keep you satchel stored in the dust bag provided in a clean, dry place.
  • As a general rule, you should take care to avoid rubbing your satchel against rough or sharp surfaces to minimise scratching. 
  • We recommend applying a leather protection cream to improve the water resistance of the leather. We advise doing this before your first use and thereafter at least once a month, regardless of usage, to keep the leather moisturised. 
  • If your satchel gets wet, remove any residual water immediately with a dry cloth. Remove any large or heavy objects from the interior and allow it to air dry naturally at room temperature and away from direct sunlight or direct heat.
