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.

Authentic compagnon Waxed Canvas
Genuine compagnon waxed Canvas is traditionally crafted in Scotland by a manufacturer looking back on a history of cotton and canvas crafting for British Royal Navy sails. Therefore, compagnon canvas also provides strong protection against the elements.
For compagnon, this stunning material is made in doubled thickness compared to other canvas products on the market. This way the sturdiness and durability matches the compagnon leather, staying your faithful compagnon for decades.
To our knowledge, authentic waxed Canvas is the only vegan, natural material able to retain a ‘patina’ from its use, similar to our beloved pull-up leather.
compagnon canvas is a natural product, thus non-toxic and safe for all children and adults, even in intense use and prolonged skin contact.
If the material is under intense use, especially in warm/hot weather or wet/humid conditions, we’re recommending to add some wax to the fibre after 12-24 months. This is a fairly simple process which merely requires some pure wax and a hairdryer. To maintain the unharmful quality of the fibre, make sure to use pure, organic wax. Genuine pure canvas care wax, made specifically for by us for use with our products, is available in our webshop.
