The First limited Edition of 50 Butts and Shoulder bags saw the light on December 1st, 2013.
It all started a year ago when Hans Boons couldn’t find the perfect travel bag for his several travels through Europe. He decided to make his own bag with his most beloved material, leather. After he made his own bag, he received pleasant comments about his bag during his many trips.
After a while he decided to take it a step further. He asked Wouter Munnichs, Dirk Hens and his wife Jose to join him and he suggested to make the ultimate travel bag. He wanted to integrate their experience into the process and offered them the opportunity to be a part of the team. Neither of them hesitated, and Butts and Shoulders was no longer a one man show.
A Butts and Shoulders bag is made of 100% natural vegetable leather. They call it virgin leather. The moment you unpack it, you are starting the unique ageing process. By using it, touching it and even by exposing it to daylight the looks of this unique bag will change. The more you will use it, the more beautifull it gets. Like a true friendship that will grow over time.
Every bag will be delivered with a leather certificate with the unique bag number. The certificate reminds you to the start of the ‘virgin’ leather and it’s also the testimony of the registered original. The bag is 100% made in Holland. I love the logbook inside the bag - that's a great idea!
