The most luxury of the Trugs, our Sedgewick 1900s Bowdon Trug is made of the finest British made leather with a beautiful satin finish in a whiskey tan, and lined with Italian calf, both veg tan leather that will look even finer with age.
Rolled handles and traditional hand saddle stitch throughout construction. It comes with an internal D ring and bridle loop key holder, and all the brass hard wear is traditionally sand cast in Britain's last remaining factory in Walsall.
Veg tan leather changes colour and patinas with age and due to its lengthy and skilled production it accounts for a smaller percentage of leather sold compared to the more common chrome tan. This makes it more expensive, but it is supporting historic industries and staying true to a way of manufacturing that has existed for centuries.
Veg tan has many qualities that chrome tan does not, it shows the natural character of the hide rather than chrome tan finishing which achieves a uniform finish. High quality veg tans like the Sedgewick 1900s brings out these markings beautifully and makes it a lovely feature on items like this.
