Care & Packaging

We recommend treating your leather accessory once a month with our Premium Leather Cream. First, remove any dirt or dust from the leather with a cloth. Then apply a thin and even layer of the cream on dry and clean leather with a cotton cloth in circular movements. Allow to dry and then polish.

When ordering from us, you’ll receive everything ready to be gifted. Our bags come with a handmade cotton dust bag. Please use it when storing the bag to help the leather remain in good condition and develop a rich patina over time.Additionally, all smaller items such as wallets and belts will arrive beautifully wrapped in tissue paper, a gift box, and a gift bag.

PREMIUM ITALIAN LEATHER

Von Baer products are crafted using premium vegetable-tanned Italian leather. Because we believe in the importance of sustainability, each of our product comes with a certificate of leather origin. The trademark Pelle Conciata al Vegetale in Toscana (Tuscan Vegetable-Tanned Leather) guarantees the quality and origin of the leather. It encompasses not just the material itself but also how it has been treated and by whom.

MADE IN ITALY

It is not without reason that Italy is known as the land of true artisans. All our products are made in Florence, Italy in family-owned studios, where the tradition of leather craftsmanship has been passed down generations. Believing that our customers deserve the best and showing our appreciation for this masterful heritage craft, we are ready to pay honest production prices for the high-quality work being put into each product.

FINE ITALIAN COTTON LINING

We ensure that all our products are beautiful inside and out. We use natural thick and robust Italian cotton canvas lining. Unlike synthetic materials, it is sustainable and pleasant to touch. Moreover, the cotton lining is long-lasting thanks to the well-known Italian grasp of impeccable textile manufacturing. Due to this, an ordinary fabric like cotton is turned into something that will serve well to those who expect the highest quality.

JAPANESE YKK ZIPPERS

Your product is only as good as its weakest link. You don’t want to throw away your bag after a couple of months of use simply because the zipper didn’t hold up. That’s why we only use the renowned YKK zippers for our products.

SUSTAINABILITY

When choosing Von Baer products, you can be sure that you’re not only getting something stylish and high quality but are also supporting a sustainable business and traditional craftsmanship. We do our business in a way that supports local communities and does not harm the planet.

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS

Ask a Question
  • Will a laptop with the dimensions of 396 x 262 x 32,4 mm fit into that bag? With 40cm width the bag seems just big enough to accomondate it.

    Thank you for your question, Christoph B.

    This laptop will not fit into the Essential bag. For big laptop computers we have designed the City Large laptop bag. Your laptop will definitely fit into the City Large.

  • For the engraving, where is it engraved onto? The face of the bag?

    When it comes to bags, we can engrave anywhere you want. After you make an order, we will send you the visualizations for your confirmation before we actually start engraving.
    One of the most popular places, where the customers prefer to engrave, is on the back of the bag, on the opposite side of where VB logo is. Some customers prefer to have their engraving on the front side, in the bottom left or right corner.

  • Can you emboss the strap with my initials?

    Yes, we provide embossing as a personalization service.

  • Will a 15'' HP laptop along with its charger and an iPad fit together in this briefcase? It seems big enough.

    Yes, all of it will fit together and the bag is designed to fit a laptop up to 15.6".

  • Are there really two separate main compartments there? I can see two compartment zippers outside.

    Yes, the Essentsial has two main compartments. You can get see it in detail in the product video.

  • What paper size can fit in the outer back pocket? Can I put some of my documents there?

    The front compartment will be better for A4 documents as the outer back pocket is strictly A4 size itself.

  • Will this bag still stand firm and structured when not fully loaded with items?

    While this model is slightly softer than some of our other bags, it will still hold its form nicely even when not fully loaded. If loaded properly, it will stand as well.
