Pull-up leather is carefully selected from the finest Kenyan hides and then tanned using a technique that gives a distressed appearance that improves with age.With a rugged, luxury aesthetic, the natural oils in this leather give it an exquisite patina without requiring much maintenance.
The solid brass fittings and double-stitched stress points complete the safari-grade specification for long-lasting premium quality. The robust carrying handles and solid brass studs complement the overall styling of the bag and enhance its ruggedness.
About Sandstorm luggage:
Only the finest materials are used to make Sandstorm travel bags: from specially tanned camel and cowhides to safari-grade 100% cotton canvas and solid brass fittings. The range brings these materials together to deliver a striking combination of luxury, style, and durability. Furthermore, the Sandstorm range of travel luggage is handmade by Kenyan craftsmen and women who are highly skilled at stitching and finishing. Their skill is learned from years of experience working with their hands - weaving baskets and mats or making and maintaining fishing nets. This attention to detail will ensure that your luggage is unique. Sandstorm also offer a 12 month limited liability warranty for their bags.
A note about leather: We stand by the quality of the construction of Sandstorm's leather range and the quality of the leather used to make their bags. Leather is, however, a fabric and, as with all fabrics, it has its limitations. While cases are few and far between and we have not experienced puncturing on our own safaris and expeditions, fabric, by its very nature, is able to puncture or tear if subjected to force, sharp objects, if thrown along an abrasive surface, or other forms of harsh handling.
