HYDROPHOBIC LEATHER — WHAT KIND OF LEATHER IS THAT?
We love leather and we know a lot about it. We created the first FS Bike bags with vegetable-tanned full grain Juchten leather — exceptionally noble, but also very specific in use. This type of leather requires adequate care and is more susceptible to external factors such as rain, stains, etc. Undoubtedly this is highest-quality material and it is simply beautiful, that is why FS Bike still offers bicycle bags and accessories made of this type of leather.
However we wanted to expand our offer and add bicycle bags with unique functional and practical features, perfectly tailored to the needs of urban cyclists and the way they are used, which is obviously more extreme than in the case of classic shoulder bags. Based on these ideas and conclusions we created the “weather-friendly” collection. The bags from this collection are made of hydrophobic leather produced by one of Polish tanneries specifically to our order. Bags made of this material are more resistant to weather conditions and do not require any special care or maintenance. They better stand contact with water, dirt or sun exposure, etc. Usually its enough to wipe them with moist cloth to restore them to their original condition. In no way does this belittle other remarkable leather materials that are also available in our offer, however surely this special collection will meet expectations of some cyclists.
