Lovely case fits the phone perfectly. Promptly shipped & nicely wrapped with recyclable packaging. Owner was amazingly polite. Because it is made with all natural materials, I really like that I can toss it into the compost bin when Apple changes the phone size again in a few years;)

About

Westerman Bags is a small family run business. We believe in slow design, functionality and premium materials.

There's something addictive about working with my hands. I use my hands every day to create functional, appealing and sustainable gadgets, that stand out from the crowd. I love slow design and each piece I make is made one at a time, by hand.

Way back, in 199-something, I learnt how to build a house.. and graduated. I realised I was not a builder of large strcutures with ditto numbers.. so in the new millenium I graduated from fashion school. I learnt how to create things with my hands. As I am not the crafty type of person, I study the function of things and my designs. This is how the clear and straight lines of my designs arise.
I take pride in working with premium natural materials. The cognac buffalo calf leather is vegetable tanned and is made exclusively for my brand. The undyed woolfelt is a genuine natural product and made in Europe. It has been a process in-depth work for years to find these wonderful materials.

The times that I worked alone are past. It is a great pleasure to teach and learn from the fashion students that reside here. In case you are interested in learning about even stitches, red details and running a small international business, please write me. I am always looking for "artisan" souls to share my passion with :)

Etsy has been of great influence on the development of me and my work. I am proud to be a Etsy Seller. My bags and covers are in use all over the world, because of Etsy.

When I have the time I like to run a few miles through the flat meadows with my dog Vinni or take my Bianchi racing bike for the long rides.

Additional policies and FAQs
QUALITY AND MAINTENANCE

Leather.
We use vegetable tanned leather. The surface is porous and not flawless. Small scratches will come & go. If the leather dries out you can put some natural (no color) shoe shine on the leather for conditioning. We use Fiebings natural wax for a subtle satin shine. The leather will darken overtime and become more shiny.

Woolfelt:
The felt we use is produced in Europe & carries the Woolmark label: 100% virgin woolfelt, with a density of 250. Due to this density, the felt is highly waterrepellant, however not fully waterproof. It is durable, dirt- and water repellant. In case you still need to clean the felt; first bristle it with a very soft bristle brush. A baby brush works best. Don't rub. You can then carefully rinse it with luke warm water and some (soft) soap. Lay flat, on a towel, to dry. Use a cool and dry iron.
When pills (small felt balls) occur, cut them off with sharp scissors. The sharp cut will prevent the felt from forming new pills.

The felt we use is produced in Europe & carries the Woolmark label: 100% virgin woolfelt, with a high density. Wool is naturally dirt- and water repellent. Lanolin, the naturally accorring waxy coating on wool fibers, is responsible for this. We advise the following methods of maintenance:
Dry stains and dust → vacuum occasionally
Wet spills → directly blot with dry cloth or paper towel. If necessary, rinse with Cold water and blot again until dry
Grease stains → clean with K2r
