Handmade Captain Santors Leather/Wool Bags

Captain Santors is a brand that started in 2014 by Gianluigi Santoro in Italy. Born in the South of Italy at the seaside, the brand refers to their roots, their land, and their sea. Their heritage collection is a reinterprets working clothes from seaman, fishermen, and sailing pioneers.

Within the collection of the brand they use fabrics from small handicrafts, selvage denim fabrics, and cotton from Japan, but also Irish and Scottish wool, Italian and English cotton, and hemp. All their products are made in Italy to achieve the highest quality.

Handmade Bags

Part of their collection are these handmade bags which are made with genuine leather and wool. The wool is coming from Italian navy blankets with patterns. Each bag is a unique item, as all the blankets are different cut with the patterns. So each bag may have small differences compared to another one. The Captain Santors bags have outer pockets, inner pockets, and a shoulder strap. And some of them showing the classic anchor on the front too.

Perfect for everyday usage, wether you’re going to school, work, or just a day out. The leather will age, and will be softer, and more beautiful after each day.
