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.

" Nano messenger " - Idealer Begleiter für die street Fotografie

Seit der Photo+Adventure in Duisburg habe ich, in Ergänzung zum "medium messenger", nun auch meinen "nano". Die kleine Tasche ist der ideale Begleiter für die street Fotografie und bietet hinreichend Platz für eine Fuji X-T2 Kamera mit zwei Wechselobjektiven. In den Seitentaschen lässt sich zusätzlich noch etwas an Kleinkram unterbringen. Wie bereits der "medium messenger" ist der "nano" bestens in der Verarbeitung.

Perfect bag for my use

I bought this amazing leather camera bag for my daily carrier. The leather is softer than mainstream competitors and the inside is sturdy enough to protect my gear without being overly boxy. This is the perfect inbetween size that isn't commonplace. Others are either a little wider with a single flap/buckle (the common messenger style) and are too cumbersome to carry around daily; Or they look like fat, square tumblers. I carry my daily mirrorless with 1 or 2 extra lenses, the couple extra pockets are useful too if you decide to utilize them. Might get the larger sizes as well in the future. Keep up the good work, I'm impressed.
