Pepper Leather Crossbody Convertible Backpack

Color: Whisky Raw Leather

Brooke's Design Notes:

Spring and summer are all about adventures and travel for me, whether that be riding camels in the Sahara Desert in Morrocco or riding a bike through ancient temples in Angkor Wat Cambodia or a bike ride to the zoo (more my speed these days), you need a small-ish, versatile bag to carry all the things from kids' snacks, water, a notebook, wallet – and so the Pepper is here for all your adventures!

Leather Types

Raw Leather

Our classic, high-quality full grain leather. Each piece of leather is perfectly ‘imperfect’, carrying unique grain patterns with no surface alterations or splitting, and an elegant matte finish. Over time these pieces will develop gorgeous individual patinas. 

Oil Leather

Our classic raw leather which has been oiled for a more uniform color appearance. This process provides a touch of water resistance and gives the bags a gorgeous glossy finish. These bags won’t develop patinas.


To keep bags looking fresh give them a wipe with a damp soft cloth. Our raw leather also benefits from being moisturized every now and again, read more here.
