We have managed to source from our British suppliers our favourite Crazy Texas cowhide in a brand new range of colours!

Watch this space to see Nelson producing some of our classic pieces such as wallets, double hide stitched belts as well as messenger bags, wash bags, bottle holders and other small accessories in a brand new range of colours to include admiral blue, cherry red, cinnamon tan, sand yellow, dartmouth green. This is in addition to our standard dark brown and black that we already use.

This leather has a natural grain with a smoothed buffed finish. Wax is then applied to the leather during production to enhance the leather fibres so when the leather is scratched, rubbed or manipulated in any way the natural appearance changes giving it an antique, vintage appearance. This then develops later into a characterful patina over time.

Nelson has already produced messenger bags and travel/ wash bags in these new hides which are available to buy in our bagbus shop and online.
