I created two cross shoulder bags lately, one is more simple while the other one is more complex, this simple version is basically a rectangular shape of cross shoulder bag with hidden snap button as closure, while inside there is a long wallet with zipper which can be snapped on and off inside of the bag, which is in style and also practical at the same time ~

LEATHERS WE USE
all leather we used are high quality vegetable tanned leather imported from Italy. the tanning process took more than two months, and finished with blend of oils and waxes which make it durable. the card wallet will age the way you use it, as it will adsorb human fat when you are carrying it, making it even more beautiful by time.
p.s. all leather pieces were hand cut from full grain vegetable tanned leather, there may be minor markings on the surface owing to the life of the animal, but all the leather part we use were carefully selected and we would never use leather surface which have holes and cuts.
our leather are vegetable tanned leather which the surface is ready to be used and finished, if by any chance the leather touches water please let it dry out naturally, if any crack appears afterwards, you can put on any leather conditioner to moisturise the leather.
In general if you keep carrying it from time to time, or if you store it in your drawer, do remember to take it out and use it sometimes, then the leather will always look great as it absorb human fat which makes it shine.
