N°009 leather shoulder bag by Michael Sans Berlin
is hand-made in Germany using natural, sustainable and eco-friendly materials and processes. The leather bag is manufactured to the highest quality with careful attention given to an every detail. The bag is compact yet can fit many of the everyday essentials like your phone, wallet, small sketchbook (both Passport Traveler's Notebook
, Regular Size Traveler's Notebook
and A5 size Roterfaden
fit!). Proportionally it is a great size to carry on or across your shoulder. Think European in style (for men and women)!
Metal accents combined with hand stitched details on the leather make this bag very utilitarian yet stylish. The leather on the bag is tanned using natural materials. The colors are not spray-applied but massaged in and the edges of the bag are finally treated in a traditional style in dark brown (natural grease). Not only does this dark brown protect edge of the leather, but it also makes a nice contrast to the shade of the leather. Southern German calf leather measures between 3.2 and 3.5 mm - too strong to be sewed by machine. Thus each item is elaborately prepared at a Brandenburg saddlery and hand-stitched afterward. The specially waxed sewing thread in white is extremely robust and tear-proof.
The bag opens/closes using two metal rivets (one on the front panel and another on the bottom). Shoulder strap can be fastened through two aluminum rings which are attached to the bag's main compartment by leather tabs. The shoulder strap can also be looped through the leather tabs on the back panel in order to use it as a waist bag. All fittings, metal pieces and rivets are made of rustproof aluminum or stainless steal and are obtained exclusively from Germany and Switzerland.The Michael Sans Berlin's logo is embossed into the leather on the right bottom corner of the bag and the phrase "with lots of love and care, hand-made in germany" is embossed discretely on the back panel of the bag. An aluminum badge, on which the individual serial number is stamped by hand, makes every shoulder bag from
Michael Sans Berlin unique.
All the materials, especially the leather, do age very nicely and get a beautiful patina. The longer you use your bag, the more beautiful it becomes. You can really see the contrast between new and used (4 years)
