We purchase high quality fabrics from trusted, Guangzhou Large leather market based sources.
Our years of manufacturing and carrying our bags have helped us hone in on what works best for our bags and holds up to daily use. Here's what we are currently using:
Vegetable tanned leather
Based on the craftsmanship and careful use of traditional techniques developed over centuries, the vegetable tanning process results in leather with a distinct appearance and unmatched durability. One of the best features of vegetable-tanned leather is that it develops a patina over time with prolonged use and exposure to the environment. Due to the gentle processes involving several weeks of treatment, the vegetable-tanned leather has a much longer life than chrome-tanned leather. It is breathable and products such as bag made with it get more comfortable the longer you use them.
Usually this kind of leather is stiff in the beginning but gets more supple with time and use.
Water resistance: The longer the use time, the higher the waterproof performance(The first month can not be damp)
100% cotton canvas has wax integrated into the fibers during the weaving process and finished with a top coat of wax for added water resistance. Waxed canvas has a distressed look that will age and change over time. Waxed canvas was originally developed in the late 1800's for long shore fishermen who needed to stay warm and dry. We like that legacy.
Water resistance: High
100% cotton canvas. Much like waxed canvas, a water resistant coating is integrated into the fibers during the weaving process but, there is no top coat wax finish. This results in a surface that is only slightly distressed and will look the same, day in and day out. It has a water resistant coating which makes it extremely durable and able to withstand the elements, keeping the contents of your bag dry.
Water resistance: High
100% cotton canvas with a corded weave. Corded canvas is similar to corduroy only it has no pile, does not pill and breaks in like your favorite denim. Corded canvas has not been treated with any water resistant coatings.
Water Resistance: low
100% cotton canvas with a slightly brushed surface. Soft to the touch. Our brushed canvas has not been treated with any water resistant coatings.
Water resistance: low
Cordura® is a high performance, highly water resistant fabric. It is light weight, extremely durable and will not absorb water.
Water Resistance: High
Our leather comes from the largest leather factory in Guangzhou. They are a large factory specializing in the production of leather. We have been working together for many years. Because it is the most concentrated place for leather production, it also greatly reduces our production costs.
Our products are not expensive when they are high quality, which may be exciting for everyone.
