The Nuoli Mini Backpack has a vintage look due to the cow leather being vegetable tanned. It can be worn multiple ways depending on your needs; simply clasp the straps onto the metal loop to create a backpack or unclasp it for an across body bag. The strap is also adjustable and completely detachable for a clutch style. This bag features a wide base which narrows towards the top of the bag for ample packing room. Look inside to find a phone pouch and a zippered pocket and secure it closed with the main zip. Ideal for those who are always on the go, The Mini Backpack is versatile and functional.
Semi-Vegetable Tanned Cow Leather
Leather is a natural, renewable material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. Semi-vegetable tanned leather is tanned using natural plant tannins and then chemically finished, giving a soft finish.
We select our leathers based on their individual properties and the intended application.
Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Unlike many synthetic materials, leather develops patina over time and gets better with age. Buying a well-made leather product can be considered an investment and supports the slow fashion ethos of “buying less, buying better”. Leather can be recycled or upcycled, and once it reaches the end of its lifecycle it is biodegradable.
Chromium VI is not used in any tanning processes for our leathers.
