Small Bag Robin
But what is the story behind this product?
DOA COLLECTION - High quality products with more than one good purpose.
"The name DOA is clearly connected to the people who taught me the values of responsibility, commitment, steadfastness and the principle of "give and take" in life. My mother Dorothea, my grandpa Oskar and my grandma Annelotte." - Tim Beier, CEO Bearpaw Products & Founder DOA Foundation. Starting in 2019 with small steps, the DOA Foundation will take a big step in 2020 - together with Buckle & Seam. Of the total revenue generated by the DOA Collection, 3% will go directly to the DOA Foundation's donation account. The DOA Foundation will use these donations for various activities, thus trying to make the world a better place for children/young people and students. But this is not the only part that creates something good. Through the partnership between BEARPAW and Buckle and Seam alone, 3% of the revenue generated by Buckle and Seam has also already gone to the girls' school in Karachi.
Why does the product have this exact name?
Robin is a very young man whom we were allowed to take by the hand for a short time. Robin has already completed his first professional internship at the age of only 11 - with us. The task of caring for such a young person in a way that does him justice was extremely important to us. So Tim (CEO BEARPAW PRODUCTS) personally took care of Robin's internship. He accompanied him, explained & showed him everything and already gave him the first "small" values. This way we managed to create an environment for Robin, where he felt extremely comfortable and could ask all the questions he had. Robin was allowed to participate in meetings, expressed his opinion and made a small contribution to the company. Because it is important for BEARPAW to believe in every person that there is hidden potential in them. For this reason we, Robin, would like to dedicate the small bag "Small Bag" and are very curious about the path he will take.
The perfect place for "small stuff" - Small Bag Robin

They put a lot of emphasis on the conscientious manufacturing of the products and care is taken that the employees can work under good conditions, which is normally a rarity in the country of manufacture.

Premium Cowhide Leather
Every product from the Buckle & Seam brand is unique. Our men's collections are handcrafted from leather in its highest quality form. This form is referred to as 'Full Grain,' which means the leather is processed in its full thickness. This creates an exceptionally durable end product that you can carry by your side for years. The way our models are crafted also ensures that each of them develops its own patina over the years. Just like you, your bag only becomes more beautiful with age.

Therefore, we regularly review the working conditions under which our producers work at the production site in Pakistan and pay them almost three times what they would normally earn in their region. We aim for equal opportunities.

How can I maintain the leather?
Your new leather bag doesn't initially need any special care. The natural oils and waxes incorporated into our leather after the tanning process provide enough protection and make the leather supple. To ensure you enjoy your Buckle & Seam product for as long as possible, we recommend treating the leather with our leather care once a year. If you see rough and dry spots on the leather, then leather care is urgently needed.
Why is the leather so special?
Our bags are made from premium cowhide leather. It is carefully selected and processed by skilled craftsmen. We chose cowhide leather because it meets our high standards for quality, durability, and naturalness. It is strong and supple at the same time, making it an excellent raw material for manufacturing our high-quality products. We use the leather in its most natural form - Full-Grain. This means that the leather is processed with all its layers in its full strength, which averages 1.7 mm and is thicker than the material of most leather bags. It is characterized by great
resistance and naturalness. The hides come from animals in Northern Pakistan.
Can I remove scratches from my bag?
You will quickly notice that removing minor scratches is possible by rubbing them with your finger or a cloth. If you discover deeper scratches, we recommend applying our Colorless Beeswax with a soft cloth on the bag. This will make the scratch disappear, and your bag will be protected for future adventures.
The leather of my bag is lighter than shown on the website.
As leather is a natural product, each piece of leather is unique and may have natural variations in color. Additionally, leather can change its appearance over time due to external factors. Prolonged exposure to sunlight, for example, may cause the leather to dry out and lighten. In such cases, we recommend using our leather care products, which can help restore the color and suppleness of the leather.
Why is the color of my bag changing?
Leather develops a unique patina with frequent use, causing the leather to darken. However, over time, your bag may show signs of drying out, characterized by rougher and lighter leather. In such cases, we recommend using our leather care product to restore your bag to its former glory.
