All in one phone case and stand
This multi-use laptop bag has the perfect proportions to be as versatile as possible - you can easily carry a 15" or 17” MacBook Pro in the bag as a briefcase, shoulder bag or backpack. Beautiful simplicity outside with a detailed composition inside featuring green canvas twill side pockets and tan leather detailing...
Our vegetable tanned leather matures and alters gradually over time, different from one piece to another depending on how you handle the product. An iPhone Case will go darker faster than a bag. Tan goes darker and warmer, ocean goes darker with a green undertone, black stays black.
Supple Tuscan Semi-Veg Tan Leather
Our Neutral grey semi-vegetable tanned leather is colourfast and doesn’t change. We especially developed this colour and finishing with our tannery as we want the neutral grey to stay neutral. It’s not lively. It’s stable, grounded and reliable. No matter what.
Soft Tuscan Washed Leather
Our washed leather is in a league of its own. The ash grey leather matures softly and gets a slightly different tone over time. It’s called washed leather because it actually gets washed in the production process. When our tannery puts it through the wash it shrinks up to 30% and acquires a pebbly wrinkled look. It’s softer than the other leathers we use yet still has a rich and rigid stand.
Dense German Wool Felt
Right from the start we developed a 100% pure new wool felt with our factory in Germany to exactly fit our requirements. This 3mm felt is carefully made from fine selected merino wool fibres and then compressed, giving it excellent characteristics to protect your precious tech - sturdy yet soft, water repellant, shock-absorbing and natural. It’s a special blend with a refinement that is unmatched.
Fine Italian Wool Felt
Italian made to keep it close to home, we use this wool as a lining for a number of our leather products. We've mastered this technic over the years and we think it’s a match made in heaven.
Robust Portuguese Wool
This is a medium thickness woven wool we use for our more rugged bags. It’s strong enough to hold the test of time and it couldn’t be a better material to work with.
Rugged British Cotton Canvas
For our built to last British heavyweight cotton canvas twill we found a partner that follows years of expertise through from the construction of the yarns to the finished fabric.
What we’re made of
Thoughtfully curated materials that work hard together, juxtapose, create a tension and balance each other out
Hard Graft is a well oiled machine. Calmly working behind the scenes - every person that gets in touch with our designs, from our suppliers, workshop, tannery and shipping team to our very own in-house gang believe in the good. We pour our hearts into you having an inspiring experience with us.
The leathers, wool and canvas can be softly cleaned with lukewarm water and a mild soap. Keep them away from makeup, food, or any other oil based products which can stain. All liquid stains should be dealt with quickly, and blotted gently with a clean, dry cloth. Don't forget, leather is a skin, and should be cared for in a similar way to your own.
1 Don't keep your hard graft in the rain for long periods of time (keep it under your umbrella). If the product becomes wet wipe away excess moisture and then leave to dry naturally in room temperature. Do not attempt to dry with a direct heat source.
2 Try to avoid the leather coming in contact with light coloured clothes and vice versa: some clothes (especially denim) lose colour and might rub off onto your Hard Graft. Avoid the contact or embrace the developing patina. Your choice.
3 If in doubt or you are experiencing some pretty bad staining (yep, you should have closed the fountain pen before you threw it into the bag) go to a special leather cleaning expert. They are still around and can do magic!
To keep the leather on your product looking its best you can apply natural leather wax, balm or oil. They all have a different effect so please apply on a small corner first. Ask a specialist in your area to recommend the best product to use. The leather tends to go darker if you treat it and does not need to be treated very often.
As our leather is not synthetically treated there is a slim chance that the tannins from the leather could transfer to your clothing the same way that the dye from your jeans can transfer to your Hard Graft product. Please consult your local specialist who will be able to advise you on the best way to colour fast your product.
We choose and balance the materials very thoughtfully, the leather is strong and rich, the wool is dense and soft and the canvas rugged and can take quite a bit of beating... and don't get us started on our colours which have a fascinating life of their own!
Most of our products are straight forward but we also have a selection of online 'how to' videos. For the more complex products check out our 'How To' videos.
