"Tufty" Mini Ginger Calvert Leather Crossbody Bag in Natural


Sorry, this is out of stock

"Tufty" is the name that we have given to an edition of only 10 bags that we have made to celebrate the I Love Linen campaign. They are in themselves, a labour of love.

We commissioned Hazel Stark, a designer developing sustainable fashion alternatives, to make a fabric with plant dyed linen. Sourcing pre-consumer waste linen yarn from Northern Irish mills she has used avocado stones left over from Ally Capellino lunches, to develop this delicate pink colour. The soft exaggerated pile, reminiscent of 70s shag pile carpets is applied strand by strand to the linen backing fabric.

The bag is based on our Mini Ginger style using a natural colour vegetable tanned leather. Behind the linen face the bag has all the attributes of a Mini Ginger. A crossbody zip up bag that has a surprising amount of space inside. There is a secure zip opening and nude colour bridle leather top handle and strap. The leathers may darken in time especially with handling and exposure to light, while the colour of the linen may fade little with sustained light exposure.

Protect the tufted linen panel from spills and dirt to avoid staining. Store the bag in a dust bag or drawer when not in use as the yarn colour will fade if left in bright light. Gently comb down the pile to keep it straight.

Our signature Calvert Leather group uses an Italian hide that has been washed and oiled to bring out the natural grain and touch of the leather giving a relaxed as well as luxurious look. This leather is strong and resilient and will build up a patina that is individual to each wearer. A bit of hide food or leather polish will help to keep it clean and supple. Beware of colour transfer from darker leathers onto lighter coloured clothing and vice versa, denim can be a particular enemy.
