Description

Hand-made, natural/nude color leather hip bag. This is one of my favorite leathers: veg-tanned and certified by Europe's Bio Kreis, which supports and promotes organic farming. It's thick so it holds its shape and has a suede-softness. It does not have any chemical coating and thus will darken over time, reacting to sun and your body. Note that because it has no coating, it may show water stains and dirt more than leathers you might be used to...but that also means it take on a look of its own with time.

Original design, and no two are exactly alike. Length from end to end is 43.5" and ideally fits about a 36" hip, but has room to go an inch tighter or 2 inches looser. This matte leather has a super soft, buttery feel. Sized to be worn around the hips, so you might want smaller if you like to wear it high (*see last two photos for reference fit and capacity). Also lays nicely across the chest as a holster type bag. Either way, you'll be hands free!

Shiny nickel hardware includes a heavy duty, sling lever clip for clipping keys. Front pocket is approximately 7"X5"X1" and but stretches somewhat due to the nature of leather. Snap closure in front pocket, which is unlined. Additional, unsnapped, unlined, flat pocket in back. Pack sits on your side (does not move), with buckle in front, under belly button. Can be worn with pack in front, but buckle will fall on side of body, in that case.

My goal is to work with organic materials that are durable, show some of the nature of their source and just like you and I, age and change with time. Many of the leathers I use are not highly processed with chemicals, so they may darken or lighten over time. They'll also stretch to fit you perfectly over time. I like rugged edges and character so each bag might have unique character, imperfections and rawness. Just like life in the real world, these will not be pristine and plastic. But they are made to thrive and endure.

Life on Mars seeks to find practical and beautiful solutions for everyday living that connects us back to the land, the water and the beings around us, through materials like leather, cork leather and other organics.

    This hip pack is an amazing work of art, the perfect blend of function and beauty. It fits the scene no matter what you are doing. Around town it is a unique but trendy look. On a hike, it becomes the trusted, hardy companion. In costume, it becomes an intriguing accessory of depth and detail. It is always easily the best looking bag in a crowd, and the care that went into every inch of it is readily apparent. It has enough space to hold a large smart phone, wallet, and a few other small items without any bulkiness. Just as important, LifeOnMars Goods was an absolute pleasure to deal with, answering questions and just being awesome through the entire process. Invest in something that is artisan made and built to last. This is one of those items that just sparks joy constantly.

    Perfect! Better than I could have imagined. I love the color combo of the leather and finishes and was able to customize to my needs.
