This handcrafted satchel style bag has been made from an old leather sofa and a lining using an antique map print but you could get one customised to a colour scheme you prefer.

Our leather colours are burgundy, black, tan, green or dark brown – you decide…

The bag is made with a stiffer interfacing to keep it’s structure so is more satchel like.

Lining can be upcycled canvas tent in it’s neutral colour or dyed green, or a print using vibrant colours, earthy colours or just a plain dark colour or a light colour, state your preference and we shall check what has just been salvaged or rescued – remember it’s all upcycled so stock vary all the time!

If you just want to say that the bag is for a fella or a girly and leave it to us that is fine too.
