One of the first things you might notice about your new bag is that it has a noticeably "earthy" smell that you have never smelled before. That is the smell of the real one vegetable tanned leather.
As you know, our leather comes from the traditional Moroccan tannery in Marrakesch. Eine der wenigen Gerbereien der Welt, die noch immer alte Techniken zur Herstellung von pflanzlich gegerbtem Leder verwendet.
This chemical-free process is time-consuming and requires manual skill and perfect conditions, such as the hot Moroccan sun, to turn skin into a processable material.
This traditional tannery has been using the same methods and natural products for over 800 years to complete this long and undoubtedly tough process. The people of Morocco are very proud of this.
Since we work with small family businesses and do not produce very large quantities, your bag may still come fresh from the leather craftsman.
How do you get rid of the smell? Wear as often as possible! How do you get rid of the smell? Wear as often as possible!
The smell will definitely disappear in the fresh air after a while. There are also some tricks for this, such as treating the leather bag with leather grease or the bag with a professional leather cleaner of your choice.
The leather bag under no circumstances should you perfume!
Please note that this "earthy" smell is characteristic of real vegetable tanned leather and is not considered a mistake.
