The Goodstead Satchel
Adventure awaits. This ethically-made, hand-stitched leather satchel is a go-anywhere travelling companion. Durability to accompany the adventurous traveller on the dusty trail with cargo of camera, journal and matches. Enduring simplicity to double as a work-horse, carrying your daily work essentials.
We believe in keeping it real and simple. Minimalists at heart, this is a decluttered design, with only the bare essentials. This thing is legit.
LEATHER Bag Chassis 2.2mm full veg-tanned cow leather produced using a unique eco-tanning technique; tough, resilient sturdy, and ethical. Straps 2.6mm & 3mm buffalo leather; heavy, durable and stretch resistant.
The Leather we have selected has been chosen for its strength and durability but also for its natural full grain look. The veg-tanning process allows the full character of the leather to be exposed, honestly displaying the patina accumulated over a lifetime already lived. In its second lifetime as a Loyal satchel, it will darken slightly and develop more character. This heavy stiff leather has the substance to protect your cargo and maintains its shape.
HARDWARE Naked, polished stainless steel roller buckles and rivets; sturdy and tarnish resistant.
THREAD Hand stitched .8mm Gauge woven polyester; super resilient, stretch proof and UV resistant.
VEGETABLE TANNING ADDS TO THE BEAUTY AND AUTHENTICITY OF OUR PRODUCTS. WE LOVE TO SHOW OFF THE NATURAL CHARACTER OF OUR LEATHER. AS WELL AS BEING ECO-FRIENDLY, EACH AND EVERY SATCHEL IS UNIQUE AND DISTINCTIVE IN ITS MARKINGS. WE HOPE YOU WILL LIKE IT AS MUCH AS WE DO
