Designed for everyday use, this small tote works for both casual and more formal occasions. This little back my look fragile, but it's anything but. Made from vegetable-tanned leather from the U.S.'s oldest tannery, Wickett & Craig.

Vegetable tanning is the world's oldest and most labor-intensive tanning process. It utilizes environmentally safe, natural tannins found in a select few plants throughout the world. Each region has particular methods for their process. By using the barks, branches, leaves, and even some fruits of the selected plants, tanners can create a beautiful, durable, and environmentally friendly material that we and countless craftsmen dating back to the ancient greeks have used to create objects of beauty and utility.

Alec and Mara Zemper began making bags in 2013 after they couldn’t find the perfect leather backpack – so they made one themselves. It was then that Zemper was born. Zemper ignores trends and instead builds timeless, simple, elegant bags and wallets that are rugged and guaranteed for life. Zemper uses only sustainable, natural materials like 100% vegetable tanned leather from two tanneries: Wickett and Craig in Pennsylvania and Conceria Walpier in Tuscany, Italy. Zemper acts as an educational resource on leather tanning, helping to bring to light the negative impacts that chromium tanned leather has on the environment and people. All Zemper products are made with 100% linen thread and use solid copper and brass hardware. All Zemper are cut and stitched by hand in Portland, Oregon.
