Reserved for Marie - Custom Backpack Version of Hazel
🍂Sultry Hazel - she has all the tactile pleasure you could want - the most sumptuous and thick oil tanned leather for her front and sides, and a macrame strap - you’ll want to run your fingers all over! Plus, she smells great, all the leather goodness will hit your nose as soon as you unwrap her! Oh Hazel🤎
Acorns, pine cones, fall foliage and flowers painted in swirling, rich Autumnal colors adorn the flap with a darling, totally vintage feeling button closure. Hazel has a hand strap up top if you’d rather carry her briefcase style, or clip on her should strap and go! She has a full width interior pocket in addition to the back pocket.
✨The body of the bag measures 11" wide by 8.75” tall. She’s 3” deep.
👉How do I care for my handmade leather pieces?👇
Why isn't your leather waterproof?
All leather is a natural skin, it retains moisture, gets dry and can warp and crack without proper care.. Just like us ;)
For our tooled and painted vegetable tan pieces we use only the best eco & health conscious finishing products - eco-flo environmentally safe stains and varnishes. These varnishes are water-resistant but by no means waterproof.
For any of our pieces, remove before bathing, swimming, showering or hand washing. if your piece does happen to get a splash on it, blot it dry with a soft absorbent cloth immediately in order to lessen any adverse affects, then condition.
On all pieces, I add a conditioning creme to keep it supple and flexible. This is a wax based polish that really helps protect the piece from the elements.
You will want to condition your pieces over time as the coats I've applied wear away. You can use conditioning cremes like Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner to keep your pieces supple and to rejuvenate them... This cream is a combination of natural and synthetic wax emulsions (with bees wax) and does an amazing job!
