MARA folded handmade leather cross-body bag - Natural / Nude

Small cross-body bag made of undyed vegetable tanned leather, using an interesting seamless construction. The bag is made of one piece of leather folded and maintained by metal rivets.
The MARA, thanks to its simple shape and quality genuine leather, will last for many years to come.
Wear it on the shoulder or cross body.

Vegetable tanned leather:
With time this very special leather will wear in and a patina will develop. The leather will darken to a gorgeous tan colour and a pattern, unique to each bag, will appear. This process can't be avoided and should be welcomed as it will make this bag even more unique.
If you prefer a bag that won’t change colour you might like the MARA Light Pink/Peach.
