When my Dad came home from Vietnam, he held on to his old canvas military duffle bag. We used it for years and even as a kid I had a fascination with the top-load style. We've recreated this bag, but sized it down to make it more appropriate for a few days away, rather than a military deployment. We've also employed vegetable tanned leather that will only get better with age.

We are using full grain leather - it’s one the most expensive leather as it is made from the topmost layer of the cow hide. It does not (like cheaper leathers) have a synthetic leather coating to be noted. It retains all of the texture of the original hide and is therefore flexible and more durable
Vegetable-tanned leather absorbs all the traces of our living, it matures, gets softer and darker depending on your lifestyle and how you use your product. The natural ageing does not compromise its resistance and gives it a vintage look with warm colour shades showing evidence of being a natural product.
To keep the leather on your product looking it's best you can apply natural leather wax, balm or oil. They all have a different effect so please apply on a small corner first. The leather tends to go darker if you treat it and does not need to be treated very often, We prefer to keep the leather on our THE COBBLEROAD goods untreated.
Treasure it and it will last. Our leather is sturdy and hard-wearing, it will last for many years but it does have limits so please avoid extreme temperatures overly harsh use and direct contact with wet and moist surfaces. We encourage you to love and use you re THE COBBLEROAD goods often and daily,
