Sudara is partnering with fellow do-good brand, Loyal Workshop, to offer a curated collection of leather goods. Together, we are employing and training even more women who are at a high risk or survivors of sex trafficking.  

Adventure awaits. This ethically-made, hand-stitched leather satchel is a go-anywhere traveling companion. Durability to accompany the adventurous traveller on the dusty trail with cargo of camera, journal and matches. Enduring simplicity to double as a work-horse, carrying your daily work essentials.

LEATHER - Bag Chassis 2.2mm full veg-tanned cow leather produced using a unique eco-tanning technique; tough, resilient sturdy, and ethical. Straps 2.6mm & 3mm buffalo leather; heavy, durable and stretch resistant.

The Leather has been chosen for its strength and durability but also for its natural full grain look. The veg-tanning process allows the full character of the leather to be exposed, honestly displaying the patina accumulated over a lifetime already lived. In its second lifetime as a Loyal satchel, it will darken slightly and develop more character. This heavy stiff leather has the substance to protect your cargo and maintains its shape.

HARDWARE - Naked, polished stainless steel roller buckles and rivets; sturdy and tarnish resistant.

THREAD - Hand stitched .8mm Gauge woven polyester; super resilient, stretch proof and UV resistant.
