Vachetta leather trim details
Vachetta is a vegetable-tanned untreated leather with a buttery soft feel. When first purchased Vachetta leather is a light beige colour, but it is designed to age (a process called Patina), so it will go a honey golden brown shade over the years and with use and is what makes Vachetta so unique. Patina is an unavoidable process as Vachetta is susceptible to water, stains and exposure to sunlight. Handles made from Vachetta leather can go very dark due to the grease and natural oils from your hands penetrating the leather (particularly if you wear a lot of hand cream!) The upside to Patina, is that each item which has Vachetta leather will develop its own unique characteristics. Furthermore, no two bags will age the same way. Our Vachetta has been treated with a fine wax coating to protect the Leather from deep staining, and to preserve its natural look over time. Our Vachetta comes from xxx

Seek advise from an expert before attempting anything yourself.
Protect your bag against water and dirt with a protective silicon free guard. Repeat this regularly to avoid having to clean your bag. If you do have to clean use a damp cloth to carefully remove dirt. Cleaning is an irreversible process and therefore, thorough consideration should be made before any such attempt.
Avoid contact with water, heat, perfume and cleaning agent. A characteristic of the organic cotton canvas is that it will age and also fade with time and prolonged exposure to sunlight. Best stored in a dust bag when not in use.

Meet The Designer
Crafted Society was formed by fashion industry veterans Martin Johnston and Lise Bonnet in 2017 with a goal to take the unknown makers of luxury goods out from the shadows and place them back firmly in the limelight. The duo have sourced some of Italy's finest family run ateliers to produce their exquisite leather sneakers, bags and small leather goods, denim, headwear and cashmere scarves and throws. Only through transparency do the last remaining master makers have a chance to find new apprentices to preserve their craft for future generations.
The 'Made in Italy' label is synonymous with quality and craftsmanship the world over. Yet unless a brand openly communicates its entire supply chain, how will you know if what is on the label is actually true?
Crafted Society's commitment towards transparency ensures every Italian artisan who crafts our products is acknowledged and remunerated fairly for their craft and expertise. We don't just label our products 'Made in Italy', we 100% prove they are, from the finished goods to the components to the raw materials.
Help us preserve a crafted society and demand transparency for a fair chain for all involved.
