About The Leather
The Oak Bark Tanned Leather we used to make this bag is undyed. The colour is a natural leather colour a very light tan coloured only from the oak bark liquor in the tanning pit. With time UV light rays will react with the oak bark tannins in the hide and darken the appearance. Over time it will get darker until it reaches a mid brown colour similar to the old leather trunks and briefcases. In the past leather was never dyed, leather goods were all supplied this natural colour.
This Devon Messenger Bag is a one off - we only found enough leather with the right markings for a Baja Travel Bag and a Devon Messenger.
