The weekender can be comfortably carried over the shoulder or held in hand using the leather strap. With »John« you are ready to experience new adventures.

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.

Handmade

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 Weekender »John«

<h3><b>Will the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown be accepted as carry-on by airlines?</b></h3> <p>This Weekender is quite closely sized to the dimensions of common airlines. Depending on the airline, especially with low-cost carriers, the dimensions might be tight. Therefore, it's better to inquire beforehand whether the bag is allowed as carry-on luggage. So far, we haven't encountered any issues with this size, particularly on regular flights.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Does the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown maintain its shape or can it be stored flat?</b></h3> <p>Our leather Weekender belongs to the category of soft luggage. Hence, its shape changes based on the amount of items inside. If you're not on an adventure, the Weekender can be stored flat and space-efficiently in the closet. We deliberately avoid using plastic lamination, which is needed for a rigid structure.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Is the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown waterproof or water-resistant?</b></h3> <p>The leather Weekender is designed following the style of classic 19th-century travel bags. To remain as authentic as possible, we exclusively use materials just like they did a hundred years ago and aim to minimize the use of plastics and chemicals. Unfortunately, our standard leather travel bag is not waterproof or water-resistant. However, a brief rain shower shouldn't pose a problem for our bags. Alternatively, the bag can be treated with a water repellent spray.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Can the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown be made waterproof afterward?</b></h3> <p>The Weekender can be effectively treated with a commercial colorless water repellent spray (e.g., Impru00e4gnol) afterward. Keep in mind that this treatment may alter the color and texture of the bag. It's best to test the water repellent on an inconspicuous area first.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>How can I clean and care for my Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown?</b></h3> <p>We believe that a vintage travel bag should show the marks of its use, reflecting how intensively it has been enjoyed. That's how it should be. However, if you feel the need to clean your bag, we recommend three steps:</p> <ul> <li>Remove dust and dirt particles from the bag, e.g., with a leather brush or a handheld vacuum.</li> <li>Gently dab and rub stains with a clean, damp cloth. You can try a mild solution if stains are stubborn.</li> <li>Occasionally apply a light coat of leather conditioner (such as beeswax or carnauba wax). Always test on an inconspicuous area first to avoid any surprises.</li> </ul> <p></p> <h3><b>What type of leather is used for the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown?</b></h3> <p>For the Weekender, we exclusively use vegetable-tanned and full-grain buffalo leather. The particularly sturdy leather comes from India. During production, our leather is hand-finished with oil and wax to achieve its unique vintage patina.</p> <p> </p> <h3><b>Where and how is the Leather Weekender "John" in Espresso-Brown produced?</b></h3> <p>Our products are crafted in India. Our workshop is a small family-owned business where experienced artisans create our bags with heart and passion. Our longstanding collaboration has developed into a true friendship. The production conditions are socially acceptable and adhere to BSCI standards, which we personally verify regularly. Our leather and cotton fabrics are sourced directly from India. The dyes used for our cotton fabrics are free from AZO dyes. Our leathers are fundamentally vegetable-tanned, meaning they're plant-based and do not use aggressive tanning agents. Our standards are socially and environmentally responsible and above average. However, it's our commitment to continue working on ourselves and further improve 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.
