Afar collection is made in Ethiopia of sturdy multiple ply canvas. Using a high number of fine Ethiopian cotton threads twisted together increases the strength of the fabric without adding weight. The warm natural look of the products is obtained by tinting with natural pigments extracted from the colorful african soil.
The leather is made of zebu cow skins, the ancestor of all bovines that is raised to work on the ethiopian highlands. The leather is a by-product as is collected only at the end of working cow's life. It has a very dense fiber structure and is tanned with vegetable auxiliaries to preserve its ancestral beauty.
The horn accessories also come from zebu cows. The horns of the zebu are stengthened by a long life in the harsh ethiopian environment and come with the beautiful veins in a variety of colors.
We recommend gently spot cleaning the bags and pouches.
