Perfectly practical and proportioned, our Return to Nature Cross-body is an everyday solution that accommodates daily necessities - from the book you can’t put down to an umbrella and diary. Crafted from biodegradeable leather outlined with contrasting stitching, it has interior slots to keep cards within easy reach and is stamped with its collection name and composition information on one side. Metal free, an adjustable strap closes the top without the need of a zip.
The Return to Nature collection is created to never end up in landfill, instead it will biodegrade, compost and return to the earth at the end of its useful life nourishing the soil in the process. Responding to our climate crisis, and inspired by a quote from environmentalist Arizona Muse, the project is the result of two years of research and innovation.
Using a new tanning and finishing technique we have created a leather that is chrome, heavy-metal and aldehyde-free and is finished with Activated Silk™ Technology to allow the bag, should you wish, to biodegrade, compost and nourish the soil at the end of its useful life. This means that it could never end up in landfill. This collection supports Dirt, Muse’s foundation for the regeneration of the earth, with £10 from the sale of this bag going to the organisation.
This specially tanned leather is a natural product and as such any imperfections are considered natural features of this material. The leather will age in its own unique way. To keep it protected from rain spots and water marks, and to feed and enhance the leather, it needs a little more love than other bags: please use our specially developed Chambers Wax included with the bag to protect the leather and also to soften any day-to-day scratches or marks.
