Our Hairy Hide Tote Bag
Own a bag that tells a story!
Our cowhide comes from cows that have spent their lives on a farm that is nature friendly. They are exclusively pasture fed which means low food miles and minimal carbon emissions, compared to the environmental impact of conventionally feeding concentrates. The cows are outside grazing lush pastures as much as possible, year after year. There are wide hedges to nibble and woodlands to explore. The cows and calves stay together until the calf’s digestive system is mature enough to allow the calf to enjoy grazing independently. Due to this extended nurturing period we often witness special bonds existing between mother and daughter when they are reunited together in the milking herd again. We know each cow individually. When the time comes for the cows journey with us to end, we ensure that this process is as low stress as possible. To ensure that their life is respected, we believe in utilising as much as we can from the animal and this has led to us producing this leatherware range.
Our cowhide tote bag has been made with functionality in mind ensuring it is not only a statement piece to look at but also a useful and versatile bag to use. Each bag seals with a magnetic catch and has a practical, zipped pocket inside it’s canvas lining. It is the perfect size to carry all your essentials whether it be your laptop for a day at the office or some treasures from the local market.
Louise at LG Leatherworks, a local and traditional leatherworker, combines our cowhides with Devonian Oak bark leather to produce a luxurious and durable bag. It is the perfect gift for someone special or a conscientious addition to your own collection of slow and sustainable fashion.
Thoughtfully sourced and lovingly hand-made – just like fashion should be.
