SOS Paper Bag
SOS Paper Bag
Our all vegetable tanned leather version of an SOS (Self-opening sack) bag is all natural, durable, as well as domestically and sustainably sourced (as a natural bi-product of the meat industry). We believe this time-tested design is timeless and our version is built for long term use.
Inside, there is a removable wood base for additional structure. We've added a folded bottom detail like paper bags with a minimally stitched handle detail. Vegetable tan leather will darken with age and use (see last photo of example of bag used after 3 years). One standard size made to the dimensions of a paper bag.
12" wide, 14" tall, 6" deep
Vegetable tanned leather is the only leather that is still tanned in America because it is not treated with caustic chemicals, rather the tanning process is slower and is plant based. Due its raw nature, it darkens and develops its own patina with use and exposure to nature’s elements: oil, sun, water. We encourage you to embrace what may come with time and use (a beautiful and unique patina). We precondition all of our leather with pure Neatsfoot oil. We also recommend periodic oiling (approximately every six months) to maintain its longevity. Oiling can be done with a fine-fibered cloth, sheepskin, or horsehair brush using even circular strokes, and a little oil goes a long way!
