"Ethically sourced, British made leather bags and accessories Hawthorn eco leather, organic cotton bags and accessories are inspired by the simplicity and beauty in nature. Combining natural eco leather and organic materials with simple, classic, understated shapes, our British made bags are designed to be worn everyday and anywhere life takes you. Our bags are handcrafted across the South west of England, close to our Hawthorn HQ in Devon, supporting our local heritage and skilled crafts people. Each of our leather bags comes with an organic cotton lining and a unique number printed inside to show its authenticity. Our Materials Eco Leather The leather we use for our products is a natural, vegetable tanned leather, using plant extracts for the tanning process, instead of harmful chemicals. Vegetable tanned leather shows natural marks and can be more prone to mark in use, this forms part of its charm and character. The leather wears nicely with age, with its own unique story and patina. If you wish to clean your bag you can wipe off any dirt with a damp cloth and use a natural leather cream or a scotch guard to protect it. Organic Cotton The organic cotton is certified by GOTS the Global Organic Textile Standard. The cotton stripe has been hand woven and is Fair Trade by WFTO and the dyes are also AZO‐free. If you have the bike tote bag option, this will have been sprayed with a light eco water proof spray to help protect your bag and its contents. If you wish to clean your bag you can gently wipe off dirt with a damp cloth."
