The Kurva Messenger is a small ‘festival' style all rounder, handcrafted from supple vegetable tanned leather. A contrasting adjustable saddlery leather strap creates a signature Elk style and completes this compact, versatile accessory to carry around your daily essentials. This bag has a full zippered closure, an internal pouch for your phone and zippered pocket for smaller items. The Kurva Messenger has been an Elk favourite due to its organic finish and convenient size and is now available in a range of new summer colours.
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, we do not use Indonesian sourced leathers.

Vegetable Tanned Leather
Each hide will vary in finish. The vegetable tanned leather is washed which exposes the natural grain and variations in each hide.
To maintain the beauty of your Elk bag or wallet 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.
