Triple City Bag . Tan
Our Triple City Bag, now in classic tan leather, is one of our favourite ELK styles. The compact yet functional design has room for all of your day-to-day essentials, with three internal zipper compartments, a detachable wrist strap (allowing the style to double as a clutch) and a cross-body strap which is both detachable and adjustable. The Triple City Bag is equally at home while travelling or for an evening out - seamlessly combining classic style and everyday functionality in one convenient design.
100% Goat Leather
Leather is a natural, renewable material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. We select our leathers based on their individual properties and the intended application.
Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Unlike many synthetic materials, leather develops patina over time and gets better with age. Buying a well-made leather product can be considered an investment and supports the slow fashion ethos of “buying less, buying better”. Leather can be recycled or upcycled, and once it reaches the end of its lifecycle it is biodegradable.
Chromium VI is not used in any tanning processes for our leathers.
MATERIAL & MAKERS NOTES
BN have been a long-term supplier of ELK starting with a small collection in 2013. They are now one of their main suppliers of leather goods. All leathers are sourced from LWG tanneries which is an association that sets high industry standards and audits tanneries for environmental performance. Additionally, all products are passed by REACH standard regulations, meaning they are made with restricted levels of specific chemical substances in their goods.
They are a family business with all members of the immediate and extended family playing key roles. Elk visit BN at least twice a year and they have ELK agents on the ground working with them on transparency, quality and operational standards.
Vegetable Tanned Leather
Each hide will vary in finish. The vegetable tanned leather is washed which exposes the natural grain and variations in each hide.
To maintain the beauty of your ELK wallet we recommend protective sprays and using a good quality leather conditioner to treat the product, which will increase its longevity. Do not put leather pieces on the ground or rub against abrasive surfaces. Leather is a natural material and will wear with age and use.
