men's vintage styled backpack, made of genuine vegetable-tanned Tuscan leather.
Vegetable tanning is an ancient technique that dates back to the medieval period and developed in Tuscany in the lands located along the Arnò river. The skin is placed into the barrels with water containing tannins (natural dyes, coming from plants and tree bark).
The peculiarity of the creation of this backpack: first the backpack is completely assembled from raw leather, then a dye bath is carried out during which it loses 30% of its volume. Then it is slowly dried in the open air, and treated by hand with natural beeswax. This last step gives to the leather a softness and a beautiful aged effect.
This type of coloring is 100% ecological.
