Each bag is made out of a unique combination of leather leftovers. The fancy term for these leftovers is ‘overstock leather’. This leather was made by a tanner for a certain top-notch brand. But then they decided not to buy it when the process was finished. This can happen because there is a scratch in the leather. Or because the colour deviates just a little from what it should have been. Perhaps the leather was not evenly spread or was too perfectly spread. Whatever the reason, they don’t want it anymore. Luckily we definitely want it! We welcome small imperfections and or deviations. The grains, scars and colour of this living material is what makes your bag unique. What we do is, we use the imperfect leftovers to make the small compartments within the bag and/or process the leftovers in the bag in a manner in which they are not visible.

We are more than happy to tell you about how best to care for your sak. So it will stay beautiful for years to come. 

  • (rain) drops can cause discoloration, especially on lighter colored leather. Those can often be wiped off with a clean, damp cloth. It’s best to do this as soon as possible.
  • a sak is fairly water resistant, but I cannot guarantee your things will stay dry after heavy downpours. Our saks are not completely waterproof and or water resistant so make sure you spray your leather bag every couple of months with a leather protection spray.
  • wet leather needs to dry at room temperature. Don’t put your sak to dry on or near any heating system because it could shrink or harden the leather
  • the leather I use is not suitable to be maintained with leather oil or other types of grease or conditioners.
  • be careful and mindful with lighter colored leather and darker colored jeans or pants, they can transfer.
