The Forde Leather Backpack has been created with versatility and functionality in mind. Crafted from cow leather, it is incredibly soft. The opening of the backpack is wide to accommodate larger items and closes with a zip. A curved handle at the top of this leather bag allows you to grab hold of it on the go and is just one of the three ways it can be carried. In addition to the handle, the straps can be used as a backpack and can also be adjusted to be used as an across the shoulder bag. A zippered section is located on the back to keep any precious items safe.
Each of our leather pieces is handmade in India by family owned and operated factories. We visit these factories two to three times a year to assess working conditions, manufacturing processes and to see our goods being made. The leathers used are selected for their appearance, suitability and hand feel. Every component and element of our pieces are chosen for a reason. Linings, trims, findings and leathers are all carefully selected. Each design is both independently tested and internally tested by our production team, at Elk HQ. We use different types of leathers for different bags and the source of the skins varies from piece to piece. Most leathers come from New Zealand, India, South America or China.

To maintain the beauty of your Elk bag we recommend protective sprays and using a good quality leather conditioner to treat the product, which will increase its longevity. Do not put leather pieces on the ground or rub against abrasive surfaces. Leather is a natural material and will wear with age and use. Please avoid overloading this fashion bag.
