KOMPANERO is a range of leather bags with a distinctive weathered look, vintage appeal and a contemporary design inspired by the concept ‘Leather is a Timeless Companion’.
Every Kompanero collection is piece-dyed – a process which significantly reduces leather wastage and water consumption. Instead of crafting their bags from large pieces of tanned leather, Kompanero pieces are constructed from ‘crust’, which is leather that has been tanned and dried, but not yet treated with coloured dye. The bags in this raw state are then individually dyed and hand-finished, which not only saves the environment, but also contributes to the uniqueness within each piece that has become our signature appeal.
Kompanero is partnered with ASG Leather; India’s most respected manufacturer and exporter of leather products. Together they are able to save over 20,000 square feet of leather each month, which other manufacturing methods would otherwise see wasted.
