Orgill Original bags are not made to look perfect, they exude rustic flair with every cut, rivet and stitch created by hand. Each bag is completely unique in this way that can never be replicated, you will see the true craftsmanship it's taken to make our bags, step out of the crowd, leave behind machine made accessories, be original with Orgill Original leather goods.
Made with a thick natural cream Italian hide that we have then hand dyed in our workshop to a bright and bold yellow which gives our bags a stunning finish. You will see unique marks - the hides patina - from its previous life which only add to its character. Please note the colour of the dye may not be entirely even across the whole bag as the natural elements of the leather still show through but this is all part of the unique design of each bag.
Please note each bag is made to order and will take between 7-14 working days to be made before dispatch. If you need a bag sooner please get in touch so we can inform you of our current stock. Also note your backpack will differ slightly to those shown in the images due to the natural finish of the leather we use, this is all part of the handmade process and will make your bag even more unique to you!

Leather ages naturally over time, this is its natural patina, ingrained with all your memories and travels together. Try to avoid getting your leather wet, if it does, wipe clean with a cloth and allow to dry out naturally. If your leather begins to crack techniques such as using leather moisturisers or oils can help soften it. Be sure to test any product on a small area not easily visible as some may cause slight discolouring of your leather.
Colours may vary in real life due to computer screen settings.
