Crossover bag in sand, Boro bag

This is a nice, spacious leather bag.
The bag is suitable both for everyday use but certainly also other events such as. holidays and parties. It can hold everything from larger purses and mobiles to a water bottle or spectacle case.

In addition to the magnetic closure at the front of the bag, the large space of the bag is secured with a zipper.
In the large room, there are also two smaller rooms - one with a zipper.

More features

The strap on the bag is adjustable, so you can get exactly the length you like best. In addition, the strap is also completely detachable, so the bag can be used as a handbag. Boro can also be transformed into a backpack, by clicking off one carabiner, pulling the strap through the d-ring on the back of the bag, and then clicking on the strap on the same side again. There will now be two “loops” that make it possible to have the bag on your back.

Where does the bag come from?

The bag is sewn in a small workshop in the center of Ethiopia's capital, Addis Ababa.
The workshop is owned by two Ethiopian sisters who take great social responsibility. The employees are mainly uneducated, vulnerable women. Nevertheless, they receive salaries 100% above the industry average, enabling them to live a comfortable life.
Fair conditions such as this will in the long run reduce poverty, child labor, exploitation, crime, and not least ensure better health for employees and their families.
In addition, 1% goes on sale in their own design store to Zewdity Meshesha Charity. This is an organization that helps children living in extreme poverty.

By purchasing this particular bag, you are contributing to the growth of the workshop and to more equitable jobs in Ethiopia.

As a result of a handmade process, variations occur on each bag - this ensures you a unique product and is a sign of quality.

Many colours

The shoulder bag is also available in black, cognac, olive and brown.

Care

This bag is sewn from personality-filled leather.
This means that the surface and appearance of the bag will change over time. It is normal for the bag to get marks and patina when you start using it - this is a desired and natural effect, and exactly what makes your bag special.

When this type of leather is tanned, the most beautiful skins are actually selected. This is because the finish is done with wax instead of opaque pigments, paints and topcoats that are usually used to cover damage to lower quality skins.

To extend the life of the leather, we recommend wiping your new bag with a clean cloth, applying leather grease and letting it dry. If you want to minimize unwanted stains and create a more water-repellent product, you can also treat the bag with leather impregnation.
We recommend protecting the product from direct sunlight, heat and a very dry environment.

Crossover bag in leather, Boro bag - About the name.

I have traveled a lot with my parents as a child, but the destinations were often in developing country areas and warm skies. None of us have had the urge to put on three layers of clothing, big boots and cumbersome equipment and therefore we have never been on a ski holiday before.

But in the winter of 2019, I could feel the curiosity creeping in on me. I actually wanted to try what “ski vacation” everyone was talking about.
Therefore, in one single day (yes, it was not that difficult), I persuaded my boyfriend that our Christmas present to each other should be a ski holiday to Borovets in Bulgaria. An untraditional destination for Danish ski enthusiasts and therefore a bit of a rate in our eyes. However, I had read really well about the area on several UK media and local websites. At the same time it was super cheap, so skiing was not something for us anyway, it would not be the whole big loss.

Borovets ski resort - arrival

The ski area was called Borovets and was only an hour's drive from Bulgaria's capital and Sofia Airport.
When we landed and could not see the shadow of snow in Sofia, we were quite excited, to say the least, about how the ski facilities were. We were picked up by the hotel car and otherwise drove up towards Borovets. Just as quietly, the clouds began to show through the car windows, and when we again had a clear view, there was snow everywhere! So far so good.

We had three full days at Bulgaria's oldest ski resort. Borovets is a translation of "pine forest". The area was also characterized by the large beautiful trees - and several of the trails stretched through dense pine trees. It was so beautiful.
The highest point "Musala Peak" is 2925 meters, and is Europe's 6th largest mountain.

We started on the smaller hills, but quickly caught the concept and literally threw ourselves down the larger mountains - or so I did. Despite a few crashes, it was a really fun, challenging and not least a physically demanding experience. The area offered both beginner hills and condos all the way up to the main mountains. It was absolutely amazing!

Crossover bag name

I definitely think we are going on a ski holiday again, maybe not every year, but we should try it again.
Most of my bags are named after hot areas, but I think this bag has a perfect look to be named after a cold area, so it became the beautiful Borovets.
