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 Shoulder Bag »Milo«

<h3><b>Is the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige, Structurally Stable or Rather Soft?</b></h3> <p>Our canvas briefcase, referred to as the Messenger Bag, falls under the category of soft luggage and is partially made from soft khaki-beige cotton canvas. As a result, the shape may change slightly based on its contents. The advantage is that this vintage men's shoulder bag can be easily stored if not needed. We intentionally avoid using plastic lamination in our handbags, which is required for a rigid structure.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Is the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige, Waterproof or Water-Resistant?</b></h3> <p>The canvas and leather men's shoulder bag is designed in the style of classic courier and postal bags from the 19th century. To maintain authenticity, we use materials similar to those available 100 years ago and strive to minimize the use of plastics and chemicals. Unfortunately, our standard canvas bag is neither waterproof nor water-resistant. However, a brief rain shower should not affect our bags. Alternatively, the shoulder bag can be treated with water repellent.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Can the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige, Be Made Waterproof After Purchase?</b></h3> <p>The canvas shoulder bag can be effectively treated with a commercially available, colorless water-repellent spray (e.g., Impru00e4gnol). Alternatively, you can use a water-repellent wax (e.g., Dr. Gee's water-repellent wax). Keep in mind that this treatment may alter the color and texture of the bag. It's best to test the water repellency on the underside of the bag.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>What Kind of Material is the Canvas Used for the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige?</b></h3> <p>Genuine canvas is a densely woven cotton fabric with a weight of about 8oz or 225g/m2. This fabric was historically used in maritime applications for sails (canvas) and in industries for work clothing and leather goods. It's equally popular in the realm of art, with almost all famous paintings in the world created on canvas. "Canvas" is also another term for "painter's canvas." Canvas played a crucial role in the early days of cinema as well, serving as an ideal projection surface. Unfortunately, canvas was gradually replaced by plastics in many applications. In the leather goods industry, many plastic materials are incorrectly labeled as canvas. Genuine canvas is made from 100% cotton.</p> <p>For our DRAKENSBERG bags, we exclusively use authentic cotton canvas. This decision is rooted in tradition, sustainability, and formal aesthetics. Our cotton fabrics weigh 16oz or approximately 450g/m2. Additionally, our canvas is hand-dyed and washed to achieve the authentic DRAKENSBURG vintage look.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>How Can I Clean and Maintain the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a handbag with a vintage design should be allowed to show signs of its intensive use. That's how it should be. However, if you still feel the need to clean your bag, we recommend three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Clean the handbag from dust and dirt particles, for example, using a brush or a handheld vacuum cleaner.</li> <li>Gently dab and rub stains with a clean, damp cloth. If the stains are stubborn, you can try a mild soapy solution.</li> <li>Periodically apply a light layer of leather conditioner (e.g., beeswax or carnauba wax). Be careful not to apply it to the canvas to avoid stains.</li> </ul> <p></p> <h3><b>What Leather is Used for the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige?</b></h3> <p>For the men's handbag, we exclusively use vegetable-tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. This exceptionally robust leather originates from India. During production, our leather is additionally treated by hand with a colored wax based on carnauba, resulting in its distinctive vintage patina. It perfectly complements our cotton canvas.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>How Should Men Carry the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige?</b></h3> <p>A shoulder bag can be worn simply over the shoulder or diagonally across the body. We recommend carrying our men's canvas and leather shoulder bags diagonally across the shoulder, as this distributes the weight more evenly. It is less strenuous when carrying the bag over longer distances. In general, it's advisable to switch sides when carrying bags over longer distances to evenly distribute and relieve pressure on the back and spine.</p><p>In addition, it's recommended not to overload briefcases and shoulder bags. Before embarking on a journey or heading to work, consider which items are truly needed for the day. This helps preserve both your back and the bag's material.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Where and How Is the Briefcase "Milo," Khaki-Beige Manufactured?</b></h3> <p>Our goods are manufactured in India. Our factory is a small family business where longstanding employees craft our bags with passion and dedication. Over time, our long-term collaboration has evolved into a genuine friendship. The production conditions are socially responsible and meet BSCI standards. We personally verify this regularly. Our leather and cotton fabrics are locally sourced in India. When dyeing our cotton fabrics, we exclusively use dyes that are free from AZO colorants. Our leather is fundamentally vegetable-tanned, meaning it is based on plant extracts and devoid of aggressive tanning agents. Our standards are socially and environmentally acceptable, surpassing average expectations. However, we are committed to continuously improving 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.
