What types of leather do you use?
Shonga bags are made from the finest Canadian sourced vegtan and oil tanned leather. Weights range from 3 up to 6 ounce leather depending on the application. Most leather mountaineering and hiking boots are made with similar weight leather.
Why hand-stitched versus machine stitched?
Hand stitching using a saddle stitch creates a stronger seams which will not completely unravel should a thread fray. It is more time consuming, but is the only way to ensure our bags last a lifetime.
Explain your price point?
Quality leather combined with hand crafting make for a product that will last a lifetime. This takes time.
Do you ship overseas?
Currently we only ship within Canada, the continental United States and the EU.
