Michelle designs and makes these fun-yet-hardy bags from locally-sourced kangaroo leather, the strongest leather in the world, and arguably one of the most sustainable (at least in our corner of the globe!).
The bags are available in three sizes, and a variety of colours. They're long-lasting, and ideal for weekend markets, picnics, water bottles, or our favourite, wine with a side of cheese and crackers.
We source our hides from Packer Leather, located in our own Deception Bay. You can read about Packer's long family history and green credentials on their site, though suffice to say the leather would be wasted if not tanned and used, as the roos are culled each year, and the animals do much less harm than their hooved counterparts. We also strive to source the leather Packers cannot sell to larger producers, as we can work around small flaws and imperfections in ways production lines cannot. It's an incredibly durable leather, and we have pieces we made over a decade ago that are still going strong. We pride ourselves on making pieces that last, and pick out any that show flaws during their crafting, though please reach out to us if you experience any failings during reasonable use.
