Pure cotton & fine saddle leather

Our Kimberley collection is made of extra-robust cotton canvas, which is produced in Germany. The production is particularly resource-efficient, as only recycled water is used for the dyeing process, which is then reused in a closed purification process. The dyeing is of course azo dye-free.

Our saddle leather, which is particularly thick and robust, comes from water buffalo and is vegetable tanned. It comes from an LWG silver-certified tannery. Our leather gets its special patina from a special wax that is applied by hand.

Pure cotton lining

Our lining is made of pure cotton twill, a soft and natural material. Its special weave gives it a fine, diagonal structure that creates a particularly elegant look. This high-quality lining underlines the luxurious character of our Kimberley collection and at the same time ensures high functionality. This means your valuables remain well protected and you can enjoy the comfort that only natural materials can offer.

The value of a good trip

The story behind the bags

We are Daniel and Christoph and we are living our dream. Although we are both completely different, we share a great passion: traveling. We founded the DRAKENSBERG label because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it. To see the journey as a destination and to grow from it. Because we believe that a good trip can change your whole life. The trip that changed our lives took us across South Africa almost 20 years ago. When we wanted to drive from Cape Town to the Drakensberg. But we never got there.

frequently asked Questions

FAQ

The canvas shoulder bag is part of the so-called soft luggage and is partly made of soft cotton canvas. Therefore, the shape changes slightly depending on the amount of filling. The advantage is that the vintage shoulder bag for men is easier to store if it is not needed. We deliberately do not use plastic lamination on our canvas handbags, which is necessary for a firm shape.

What kind of material is canvas used for the shoulder bag »Milo«?

Real canvas is a tightly woven cotton fabric with a weight of around 8oz or 225g/m². This fabric was previously used primarily in shipping for sails (canvas) and in the industry for work clothing and leather goods. The material is equally popular in painting. Almost all of the world's famous paintings have been painted on canvas. A "canvas" is therefore another term for canvas. Canvas has been an indispensable part of the early days of cinema. Screens served as an ideal projection surface. Unfortunately, canvas was eventually replaced by plastic in many areas of application. In the leather goods industry in particular, you can now find many plastic materials that are incorrectly referred to as canvas. Real canvas is made of 100% cotton. For our DRAKENSBERG bags, we therefore only use real cotton canvas. For tradition, for reasons of sustainability and also for formal aesthetic reasons. Our cotton fabrics have a weight of 16oz or approx. 450g/m². Our canvas is dyed without azo dyes in a German textile factory. Our supplier is very innovative and is certified according to ISO 9001-2015 (quality management) and ISO 14001-2015 (environmental management).

Which leather is used for the canvas shoulder bag »Milo«?

For the men's handbag we only use vegetable tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. The particularly robust leather comes from India. During production, our leather is also refined by hand with a colored carnauba-based wax, giving it its special vintage patina. A perfect combination with our cotton canvas.

How do men best wear the canvas shoulder bag »Milo«?

A shoulder bag can be worn over the shoulder or across the shoulder. We recommend wearing our men's shoulder bags made of canvas and leather across the shoulder, as the weight of the bag is distributed better this way. It is then less strenuous if you have to walk long distances with the bag over your shoulder. In general, you should change the carrying sides on longer journeys in order to distribute the load evenly and thus relieve the strain on your back and spine. In general, you should not fill briefcases and shoulder bags too much. Before setting off on a trip or going to work, you should check which things you really need that day. This protects your back and the material.

A lovely bag, it feels like it will take a bit of time for the leather to soften up a bit but that's to be expected with this sort of sturdy leather. I initially had some trouble getting the leather guard on the strap to sit properly but the seller reached out to help me and the issue was resolved quickly.

I came across the Drakensberg brand by chance. After a long search for a backpack, initially for my studies, I came across the Henry model. I couldn't find comparable products in terms of appearance, workmanship, quality and sustainability anywhere else. I was probably one of the first customers to decide to buy it. In addition to my studies, I also had a look at the shoulder bag, which I bought for my laptop including the cable compartment. The workmanship was very convincing and the look was great. Later on, I also bought the Steve travel bag and a duffel bag. I use the duffel bag when I travel mainly for used laundry, which it is ideal for, although you can certainly also store clean items of clothing neatly in it.
Unfortunately, a rivet on my shoulder bag came loose, so I contacted customer service. I received a response less than a day later! The bag was completely replaced without any problems. The customer service is excellent and is certainly very, very rare. The communication was very friendly. 5 stars+ for the overall package from the Drakensberg brand. Good luck to you in the future!
