Return to Nature Tote Small
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.
The Tote is supple and spacious, featuring signature organisational pockets for your cards and pen. Free from hardware, it features a metal-free closure and an exterior belt to draw the bag closed. Using a new tanning and finishing technique we have created a leather that is chrome, heavy-metal and aldehyde-free and is finished with liquid silk to allow the bag, should you wish, to biodegrade at the end of its useful life. This means that it would 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 and may react and darken over time. 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.

The leather used in the Return to Nature collection uses a pioneering tanning and finishing method, developed with Nera Tanning and Richard Hoffmans (est. 1899), resulting in a product that is chrome, heavy-metal and aldehyde-free – and thus if desired, they are able to biodegrade at end of life. The skins are sourced from Scan-Hide Swedish farms with some of the highest standards of animal welfare.

I Am A Plastic Bag
There are 8 billion tonnes of plastic on the planet but when you throw a piece away, there is no away. In a small step towards reusing what we already have, we’ve created the I Am A Plastic Bag collection. Each bag is made from an innovative new cotton canvas-feel fabric that’s created from 32 half litre recycled plastic bottles. The fabric is then coated with recycled windscreens. Each piece is designed to never be thrown away.
