As modern life and technology drains our energy, sometimes we need a holiday, or return to nature to just relax. Whether you are going camping, spending time at your cottage, or going on that long destination get-away, disconnecting from civilization still requires you to bring along your essentials, clothes and that book that you have been dying to read but just not had the time to.

Wipe the leather with a dry cloth (only use a damp cloth if completely necessary)
Apply a natural leather balm regularly (every few weeks if you use the bag daily). If the weather forecast shows rain or snow, we recommend to treat your bag with leather balm to give your bag extra protection. Check out our leather balm for detailed instructions on how to treat your bag.
If your bag gets wet, let it air dry. Wait until it is fully dry before applying a leather balm or wax.
If you bag gets a scratch or scuff, apply leather balm as soon as possible. But don’t panic, scratches and scuffs tell a story and will gradually wear in over time.
The exterior of this bag is handcrafted from premium black vegetable tanned cow leather, which is the most sustainable option of real leather available on the market. It is extremely durable, gets better and more supple with age, creating a beautiful patina over time. The paints and glues used are non-toxic and not harmful to the environment.
At Karu Atelier we use traditional leather craft techniques and hand stitch all of our bags and accessories. We use locally sourced materials and hardware. We use almost no machines which means we can limit the amount of energy we use and Co2 we produce. We make most items to order to prevent dead stock and waste. These factors make our production line as sustainable as possible.
As our leather is a natural resource, each hide will be slightly different from each other. The leather has undergone an entire other journey before it became your bag. Small scars, scratches and color differences may appear. This adds to the ‘Karu’ character of the products, and should not be seen as a flaw. It makes each item unique.
