Vegetable Tanned Leather Pouch - Xela

$38.00

Our weavers' sophisticated artistry combines with the refined leather-making tradition of experienced craftswomen based in Xela.


The result is the creation of these unique coin pouches, whose valuable quality comes from their local natural materials such as organic cotton and vegetable tannins, used to tan the leather hides and gift them a precious aroma and deep earthy tones.


Natural tannins also make each pouch 100% biodegradable, but that is not all!
Indeed, their durability, resistance and fashionable design make these accessories the perfect keepers for the miscellany of tiny items that inevitably end up at the bottom of your bag or backpack.


Do not waste any more time hunting for the right change to pay for your groceries: check these lovely pouches out!
