Versatile- This versatile leather toiletry bag was designed to be used and used all of your life and all of your descendants' lives too. Through the years, it will be used as a:
- Specialty tool bag
- Cosmetic bag
- Emergency first aid kit for the car
- Sewing kit
- Cable and battery storage
- Essential Oils Storage (I'm still up on the air on my wife's claims about her oils)
Unbreakable- Please don't try hard to challenge this idea of this leather toiletry bag being unbreakable, but it was designed to be that way with no breakable parts and out of just one solid piece of leather. The fewer seams the better. The closure is a steel Gladstone Bag closure and there's just a simple strap and buckle to keep it closed. No zippers, velcro, buttons, snaps or magnets.
Leather- We built this leather toiletry bag like we build everything, with full grain leather. This is the determining factor for how long a leather toiletry bag will last. The "Grain" on leather makes up the top layer of the hide. It's super tough, water resistant and ages nicely. The hide off the cow is thick and at the tannery, they usually split it in the middle and separate the top from the bottom and now they have two hides. The upper hide with the full amount of the grain on it and the bottom hide with no grain on it. Quality companies pay high dollar for the full grain leather and low quality trash companies make leather toiletry bags out of the bottom dwelling stuff with no grain on it. It's like building a house with no shingles on the roof.
Lining- Tough pigskin which is actually stronger than the cowskin. It's way stronger than some shiny pretty fabric liner.
Thread- The thread we chose is very very strong industrial marine grade UV resistant polyester thread. And the thick version of it too. Watch out for the cheaper NYLON thread!!! It deteriorates with exposure to heat and sun.
Hardware- We only have one piece of hardware on this bag and it's incredible. It's made of 316 Stainless and we think it could withstand a nuclear bomb. Google it and you'll be really impressed. It's expensive, but it's the metal of choice for when your life depends on it.
