The Leather

Leather is a natural product. That means it develops various looks depending on the particular lives of the animals. Hence, most of our products will have minor imperfections, stains and scratches. That is the look we love, as it is proof of the animals having lived free lives where they were able rub themselves against trees, rolling around in the grass and being bit by bugs. Just like us humans – sometimes we get bruises. 

The skins in our Core Collection comes from farmed but unleashed buffalos, giving the bags a characteristic rawness, texture and distinctive look. After tanning, the skins are given a light colour treatment that allows the natural surface to be visible.
The leather in our seasonal collections varies in treatment and looks, depending on the particular design. We love to nerd out and innovate new ways of leather expressions, making material and design come beautifully together.

Good Advice

- Keep your bag away from heavy rain and direct sunlight for a long period at a time.

- Avoid contact with light colored garments and furniture, as the product may loose color.

Leather Treatment

There exist many different kinds of leather. Giving your bag a harmful kind of treatment can ruin the bag. At still nordic, we have given all our bags a treatment that protects them from getting permanent marks and stains. If you want to give your bag an additional treatment, we recommend clear leather cream. Leather cream can never harm your bag and can be used with advantage if the leather appears dry over time. However, we always recommend trying the treatment on a less visible place on the bag to make sure that it works as desired.
If you get a stain on your bag, wring out a cloth and carefully wipe your bag. If your stain will not come of, please do not hesitate to contact us for further advice. To take extra good care of your bag, please keep it away from direct sunlight and heavy rain for longer periods at a time. NB: still nordic do not take responsibility for incorrect treatments of bags.

What to expect from products made of genuine leather

There is no doubt about how much we love leather as a material. It's a natural material, it's durable and with good care it can last in a lifetime. In a way, every bag we create is unique. Every bag is made of its own hide coming from one individual animal - which by the way is a bi-product from the meat- and dairy industry. Therefore, we want everyone to know what to expect from leather goods like ours.

Of course we aim to create uniformity across all bags we produce of the same kind. But we need to stress the fact that leather is in fact a natural material, and therefore the look of the leather may differ from bag to bag and on each individual bag.
We have tried to visualize what to expect in the pictures above. The leather varies across each individual bag. That's a part of how the material is supposed to look. If you have any questions in this regard, please do not hesitate to contact us.
