Elk Jalmara Backpack
ELK backpacks have a reputation for combining function, style and durability, and our Jalmara Backpack is no different. Crafted from buttery soft leather in two stylish shades of Black and Mushroom, this style is perfect for tackling whatever the day has in store. The main body features a cleverly designed expandable gusset which easily fits small laptops, as well as a front pocket secured with subtle magnetic closures and is lined in cotton for peace of mind. The belting leather strap can be worn three ways: as a backpack, a shoulder bag or as a crossbody.
100% Cow Leather
Leather is a natural, renewable material made from animal hides that have been preserved and softened through a tanning process. We select our leathers based on their properties and the intended application.
Leather lasts a long time, ages well and is easy to care for and repair. Unlike many synthetic materials, leather develops patina over time and gets better with age. Buying a well-made leather product can be considered an investment and supports the slow fashion ethos of “buying less, buying better”. Leather can be recycled or upcycled, and once it reaches the end of its lifecycle it is biodegradable.
Chromium VI is not used in any tanning processes for our leathers.
