The Raaka Tote is made using thick raw vegetable tanned leather, this leather is super durable and sturdy. The bag has a stiff base which helps give the bag structure and an internal zippered pouch to secure important items.
Each of Elks leather pieces is handmade in India by family owned and operated factories. They visit these factories two to three times a year to assess working conditions, manufacturing processes and to see our goods being made. The leathers used are selected for their appearance, suitability and hand feel. Every component and element of their pieces are chosen for a reason. Linings, trims, findings and leathers are all carefully selected. Each design is both independently tested and internally tested by their production team, at Elk HQ. They use different types of leathers for different bags and the source of the skins varies from piece to piece.
