CAST MADE goods are made using high quality materials that stand the test of time.
We use vegetable tanned leather from a traditional British tannery – This old age technique uses the natural tannin’s found in tree bark and other plants extracts, meaning the waste product can be recycled back into the ground. This slow and careful process creates beautiful leather, free from harsh chemicals, that will develop an original patina telling the story of you and your bag.
Our straps are made from hard wearing bridle leather and the bags feature brass fixings produced in the UK. We worked closely with a local maker, Michael, who runs a foundry in North Devon to create the solid brass brass button on the front of our bags. The design is based on the shape of a thumb print making it both functional and incredibly tactile to use.
