Handmade Leather Hip Bag - Kaufmann Mercantile

When you're biking around town or traveling to European captials, this clever leather hip bag will keep you essentials close at while keeping your hands free so you can hold the handle bars or snap a photo. The zippered pouch has an interior pocket with a peg closure to store cards or cash. An adjustable belt allows the bag to be secured snugly around your waist. The strap can also be rotated so that the pouch can be worn as a shoulder bag. The leather will patina over time and with use, deepening the hue and increasing the suppleness of the leather. 

The design of this bag was inspired by ammunition cartridge pouches from the 19th century. The craftsman who makes each pouch by hand like to use his on canoe trips, so he can keep wallet, keys, and other needed items with him, while leaving his hands free to paddle the boat. 

Use & Care

Care for the leather by conditioning periodically with neatsfoot oil or wax as well as our Beeswax Leather Conditioner. Keep away from moisture and direct sunlight to prevent cracking.

Production & Design

An intrepid traveler, Andrew McAteer found that the available bags, carriers and accessories on the market didn't properly suit his on-the-go gear requirements, so he began to design and make his own goods. Working out of a small workshop in Astoria, New York, Andrew creates products that he needs and, by extension, that others might also find useful.
