Fabrics & Production


Unique compagnon leather
Genuine compagnon bull leather is tanned and toned according to our strict specifications by a traditional family run tannery in Northern Germany. Maintaining the natural qualities of this wonderful material is the main focus in this process. Traditional craftsmanship and the use of organic ingredients like various waxes and oils result in the unique ‘pull-up’ characteristic. This feature is a permanent quality that allows for the leather to retain distinctive patina from the individual use of the bag, backpack or camera strap. Therefore the owner and his surroundings have an immediate influence on the looks, feel and character of the product and its change over time. Just like vintage leather armchairs found at an old colonial club room, a compagnon product will tell stories about its life and the adventures its been on together with its owner. Unlike any other bag, a compagnon will grow on you and will become a part of your history and your emotions.
compagnon leather is non-toxic and safe for all children and adults, even in intense use and prolonged skin contact.
This is one of the reasons why we’re strictly recommending our compagnon ‘the beewax’ as the preferred leather care product. In most other leather care products, toxic chemicals or additives are used, which will compromise the unharmful quality of compagnon leather.
The ‘beewax’ is handmade by compagnon using solely organic ingredients. The ‘beewax’ is available at our webshop.
compagnon products are handmade in Europe.

tolles Notizbuch

In Zeiten des Smartphones finde ich es auch mal schön meine Gedanken auf Papier festzuhalten. Besonders wenn dieses dicke, hochwertige Papier von so tollem Leder eingebunden ist wie hier.
Ich nutze es um meine Ideen für zukünftige Fotoprojekte festzuhalten um auf diese bei passender gelegenheit zurückzukommen.
Mit Sicherheit kein Must have, aber wer ein Buch Edeles Notizbuch sucht, dass am besten auch zu seiner Tasche passt ist hier genau richtig.
