Small Cow Leather Handbag
Article Number 12463
More than meets the eye. Handbag from Hack.
This sleek little leather bag might look rather modest but its craftsmanship is all the more sophisticated. The body of the bag is made from a single piece of strong saddle leather (2.5 mm thick) which is pared down and folded into shape. Each side is held together by a single seam, with one more securing the bag flap. This rear seam also holds the strap, which is positioned in such a way as to keep the bag close to the body when worn diagonally across the upper part of the body.
The undivided interior is big enough to hold a small tablet and has an integrated side compartment made of soft goat suede with two pockets to keep contents organised. To close the bag, a small leather flap is inserted through a metal slot. Such fittings are usually used on trailers to hold tarpaulin belts and straps in position. The bag is made by Hack Lederware in Cologne.
Hack Lederware. Lasts Long, Ages Gracefully
The man behind Hack Lederware is Christoph Hack, founder and fine bag-maker, who runs his own studio in Cologne. For over 30 years, he has been making hard-wearing, functional garments and simple accessories out of natural leathers from Germany, Italy and Scandinavia and robust cotton canvas.
The vegetable-tanned, aniline-dyed leather is processed without an additional finish, irregularities are not concealed by dyes, leaving the surface open-pored and the structure clearly visible. Production takes place at the Hack workshop in Cologne or on the premises of a partner company in Poland.
