Our story

We are Daniel and Christoph and live our dream. We founded DRAKENSBERG because we want to inspire people to recognize the true value of travel and to strive for it.

To understand the path as the true goal and to grow on it. A good journey means learning. About life and about yourself. We know that a good journey can change a whole life. Our travel bags are silent reminders of the travel spirit of the 19th and 20th century, when traveling was still an adventure and travelers were adventurers.


Maybe you have already noticed, our bags are different. Each product is an elaborately manufactured unique piece with its own little story. The bags are almost completely handmade. We only use high quality leather and natural materials. Paying attention to sustainability and environment.

Leather is a natural material and can have small irregularities. Each leather product is also patinated by hand. This elaborate process makes our products trademarked. No bag can be exactly same as another. Thus, small colour deviations are unfortunately unavoidable and are not a sign of poor quality, but uniqueness.

FAQs: Frequently asked questions about our Backpack »Archie«

<h3><b>Can I take the commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green, on the airplane?</b></h3> <p>This commuting backpack complies with the dimensions of common airlines and IATA. The commuting backpack is the ideal carry-on luggage for almost any mode of transportation.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Is the commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green, rigid or rather soft?</b></h3> <p>Our canvas commuting backpack falls under the category of soft luggage and is partially made from soft olive-green cotton canvas. Therefore, the shape changes somewhat based on the fill level. The advantage is that the vintage commuting backpack can be stored more easily if not needed. We consciously avoid using plastic lamination for our bags, which is required for a rigid form.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Is the canvas commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green, waterproof or water-repellent?</b></h3> <p>The commuting backpack made of canvas and leather is designed in the style of classic mountain or hunting commuting backpacks from the 19th century. To be as authentic as possible, we exclusively use materials as they were used 100 years ago and strive to minimize the use of plastics and chemicals. Unfortunately, our standard canvas commuting backpack is not waterproof or water-repellent. However, a brief rain shower won't affect our bags. Alternatively, the commuting backpack can be treated with waterproofing agents against moisture.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Can the commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green, be made waterproof afterwards?</b></h3> <p>The commuting backpack can be effectively waterproofed afterwards using a common colorless waterproofing spray (e.g., Impru00e4gnol). Alternatively, an impregnating wax can be used (e.g., Dr. Gee's Impregnating Wax). It should be noted that this may alter the color and texture of the bag. It's best to test the waterproofing on the back side.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>How can I clean and maintain my commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a vintage-style commuting backpack should show how intensively it has been used. That's how it should be. However, if you still feel the need to clean your bag, we recommend three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Free the commuting backpack from dust and dirt particles, e.g., with a brush or a handheld vacuum cleaner</li> <li>Dab and gently rub stains with a clean, damp cloth. If stains are stubborn, you may try a mild detergent solution.</li> <li>Occasionally, lightly condition the leather (e.g., leather care with beeswax or carnauba wax). Take care not to touch the canvas to avoid stains.</li></ul> <p></p> <h3><b>What type of leather is used for the commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green?</b></h3> <p>For the commuting backpack, we exclusively use vegetable-tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. The particularly robust leather originates from India. During production, our leather is additionally hand-treated with a colored wax based on carnauba, which gives it a unique vintage patina. A perfect complement to our cotton canvas.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Where and how is the commuting backpack "Archie" olive-green, manufactured?</b></h3> <p>Our products are manufactured in India. Our workshop is a small family business, and its long-serving employees passionately craft our bags. Over time, a genuine friendship has developed from our long-standing collaboration. The production conditions are socially responsible and meet BSCI standards. We regularly confirm this through personal visits. Our leather and cotton fabrics are sourced directly from India. When dyeing our cotton fabrics, only dyes that are free from AZO colorants are used. Our leather is fundamentally vegetable-tanned, meaning it's plant-based and free from harsh tanning agents. Our standards are socially and ecologically sound and above average. However, it's our goal to continue improving ourselves and further enhance our ecological and social footprint.</p>

Our leather production is LWG certified

Our leather tannery is certified to the LWG standard and we use only vegetable tanning agents for tanning. The Leather Working Group (LWG) is an initiative to make conditions in tanneries and intermediaries more transparent and to bring about sustainable change. To implement its goals, the Leather Working Group has developed an audit protocol for sustainable and responsible leather production.
