If you cant find what you want, then make it yourself. That’s pretty much how we got started. We started life in 2012 with a range of classic vintage inspired satchels crafted in goat hide which are beloved by our customers. 2016 saw us release the first of our own small leather goods in cow hide. Our mission has always been to create beautiful products whilst keeping prices fair and accessible.
For our range of satchels, we only use real goat hide with quality that speaks for itself and just looks great. It doesn’t need treating and it certainly doesn’t need colouring. It’s strong, durable, hardwearing and ages beautifully.
When it comes to building the bag, our craftsmen age our satchels and bags the old fashioned way, using only natural oils and good old sunshine, which seals the leather and makes it tough and water resistant. They double stitch them, line them, rivet the leather and give each one its own personality. And that’s basically it. Sounds easy? Well, just like everything that looks simple, there’s years of craft and technique behind that work and every time you put that bag on your shoulder that’s what you’ll take with you. Consider it your new buddy.
Our new release of premium cow hide products range from beautifully made wallets and card holders to smart laptop covers and washbags, they're great additions for daily use and make fantastic gifts for family and friends. We hope you like them and much as we enjoyed designing them!

"I just wanted to drop you a line to say thanks so much for my new bag! I've been looking for a leather duffle bag of this style for ages but they were either massively expensive or not that well made..and then found you guys. Love the vintage look of it and the leather is beautiful - will no doubt become a staple on future road trips! Thanks for delivering so quickly also, didn't expect to receive it so soon."

"The satchel arrived this morning and just wanted to say thank you for getting it to me in time for my sisters birthday! You were correct the 13" one was definately the right size for her, and its looks even better in real life than on the website. Thank you for all your help with my emails, I will certainly be buying again in future and recommending Urban Safari"
"A quick thanks for my new leather satchel, it is the perfect leather for me, I love the aged feel to it, it is very individual and well made and I have already received compliments! You guys are very good value indeed - now I have to buy your weekend bag!"

"Massive thanks for sorting this out so quickly - as you know I'd purchased a satchel from another seller of goat hide bags and I was so disappointed when I got it, not at all like what was advertised. It seems there really is a massive difference in quality as you said - mine arrived yesterday and I'm delighted with it, a fantastic bag. I'm a photographer so wanted something a little different to the usual canvas look bags for my laptop and this really ticks all the boxes. Thanks again."

"I just wanted to say thank you for such a personal service, Ben I spoke to was extremely helpful and helped me make the right decision - it was a tough call between 3 satchels, but now its arrived its definitely the right one. Its so nice to receive something so individual and well made - and well packed too! The whole experience buying from you was a pleasure from start to finish - thanks again."

Just to let you know that the duffel bag arrived at the weekend, it's great quality and beautifully made. Many thanks I'm sure that my husband will be chuffed to bits with it."
