About the product

The Messenger Bag "Nate," compact and ideal for everyday use, leisure, and travel, offers just the right amount of space for essentials such as wallets, mobile phones, cameras, and keys. Drawing on the design of classic courier bags, "Nate" combines protection and style through the use of durable, waterproof, waxed canvas and buffalo leather. Inside, it features an open compartment and a zippered pocket, with another zip pocket on the back for quick access. The adjustable, padded shoulder strap ensures comfort.

Especially suitable for riders and hunters, "Nate" proves to be a practical companion that unites quality, sustainability, and craftsmanship. Each bag is a handmade unique piece that goes through over a hundred steps in its creation, convincing not only with its functionality but also with its durability.

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.

The Heritage Collection

Our most sophisticated collection is specifically designed for intensive use in all weather conditions. Crafted to perfection from 22oz waxed cotton twill and toughened buffalo leather. Each bag in this collection is water resistant and offers protection for your gear, even in bad weather.

Over a year of development was required to get this collection right. Every detail was perfected. On the one hand, to emphasise the authentic character of the bags and, on the other hand, to ensure a high level of suitability for everyday use and robustness. For example, all stress points are secured with copper rivets that are individually hammered in by hand and are considered indestructible. In addition, these copper rivets develop a beautiful turquoise-green patina over time, which underlines the charm and uniqueness of this collection.

In general, the design is a declaration of love to all those who, like us, have a passion for adventure, nature and nostalgia. The bags are meant to inspire you to explore our breathtaking world, to discover new things, to understand, to find yourself and to grow from it.

Note: Leather is a natural material and may have small irregularities. Each leather product is also patinated by hand. This elaborate process makes our products unmistakable. Small colour variations are unfortunately unavoidable and not a sign of poor quality.

FAQs: Frequently asked questions about our Messenger Bag »Nate«

<h3><b>Is the messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green waterproof or water-repellent?</b></h3> <p>The men's briefcase is water-repellent due to the wax layer on the canvas. Water beads off and does not penetrate the material's interior. However, the bag is not completely waterproof and should not be submerged in water. The briefcase reliably protects its valuable contents from rain and splashes.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>Is the messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green structured or rather soft?</b></h3> <p>Our new Heritage collection is made from heavy 22oz cotton twill that is additionally waxed. As a result, the products have a natural structure and stability. The most significant advantage is that this effect is achieved without the need for additional plastic lamination. We love this look!</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>How can I clean and maintain my messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a casual vintage-style briefcase should show signs of use, reflecting its history and character. However, if you still wish to clean your men's briefcase, we recommend three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Remove dust and dirt particles from the briefcase, using a brush or a hand vacuum cleaner.</li> <li>Gently dab and rub stains with a clean, damp cloth. If stains are stubborn, you may try a mild detergent solution.</li> <li>Occasionally, lightly apply leather conditioner (e.g., beeswax or carnauba wax leather care). Be careful to avoid applying the conditioner to the canvas to prevent stains.</li></ul> <p></p> <h3><b>Does the men's messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green need to be re-waxed?</b></h3> <p>The wax is permanently incorporated into the canvas material, and the waxed cotton should retain its water-repellent effect and material properties for at least 10 years. However, if you still wish to re-wax the bag, you should only use designated textile waxes (e.g., Dr. Gee's waterproofing wax) for this purpose.</p> <p></p> <h3><b>What type of leather is used for the messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green?</b></h3> <p>For the briefcase, we exclusively use vegetable-tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. This particularly durable leather originates from India. During production, our leather is additionally hand-treated with a colored wax, sealed, and thus acquires its unique vintage patina, creating a perfect interplay with our waxed canvas.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Where and how is the messenger bag "Nate" in Forest-Green made from canvas and leather?</b></h3> <p>Our products are crafted in India. Our manufacturing facility is a small family business, and their dedicated employees passionately create our bags with great care and craftsmanship. Over time, a genuine friendship has developed from our longstanding collaboration. The production conditions comply with socially acceptable standards and adhere to BSCI criteria. We regularly visit the facility in person to ensure compliance. Our leather and cotton fabrics are locally sourced directly from India. When dyeing our cotton fabrics, we use only dyeing agents that are free from AZO dyes. Our leather is fundamentally vegetable-tanned, meaning it is treated with plant-based tanning agents without the use of aggressive chemicals. Our standards are socially and ecologically responsible, surpassing average norms. Nevertheless, we continue to strive for improvement, aiming to enhance our ecological and social impact even further.</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.
