100% Merino Wool Felt Insulates Perfectly and Allows Water Droplets to Just Roll Off
Our tote bag, York, has been created and manufactured in Hamburg using only ecologically sustainable materials. Our raw wool comes from the Merino sheep, famous for its fine wool. It is processed to superior quality wool felt here in Germany. We use this product because we are convinced of its beautiful surface feel and of its quality. It acts as an antistatic,insulates perfectly and also repels water. With a thickness of 3 mm it is a very strong material. Thanks to the wool felt it is also exceptionally easy to clean York. Simply use a damp cloth to dab it clean. Even heavy dirt can be easily removed with a mild soap.
The Leather for the Straps has undergone a Vegetable Tanning Process
The straps of York have been made from natural leather obtained from original Bavarian cattle hides which have undergone a vegetable tanning process. It is true that it is time-consuming and more expensive but it is also better for you and me and the environment. Only natural tanning agents such as bark or rhubarb are used. Leather is a naturally changeable material that darkens a little with time. The Bavarian leather which we use is one of the finest on the market and it maintains its appearance. If however a tiny scratch should appear, simply use a damp cloth and small circular movements to gently polish the affected area. If bigger scratches and the like should appear these are also easy to remove by using a slightly waxed cloth for polishing leather.
