Exclusive handmade of exquisite leather bags

Dudra East is located about 5 km from the Kashmir border in the Pakistani province of Punjab. The Punjab is known for the best leather hides worldwide. This is due to the special animal breeds, their way of life and the climatic conditions. The buffalo, cattle, sheep and goats are rather small. Each animal travels dozens of kilometers a day to find enough food. It is exposed to barren nature. It must bear up to 50 °C temperatures in summer and minus temperatures in winter. The temperature differences between day and night are also very serious. It all affects animal skins. So they remain relatively thin but extremely strong.

Light as feather but tough as saddle leather. Our selected types of leather are so extremely durable that we assure a 3-year quality guarantee on every bag. In contrast to the usual leather industry, Dudra East avoids any splitting: our master bag makers decide by carefully examining the skins, which skin is best suited for which small leather goods- wallet, evening bag or the most beautiful leather bags- briefcase, handbag, backpack, travel bag. Even thin leather is very robust and durable if it consists of an entire skin layer. We use the largest possible pieces of leather for our luxury leather bags, because the starting points are always the weak points.

Responsibility for people and the environment is very important to us: the selected fine hides are tanned by experienced tanners with biodegradable treatment agents — no environmental pollution. These skins are through dyed with water-soluble aniline dyes. It is not „glossed over“ with plastic opaque paints.

Finally, the upper side is carefully tamped with wax by hand. This gives the leather a unique look and unfolds its natural beauty. Every skin, even every part of the skin, has its own shimmer – 100% natural leather. It is particularly supple, wet and heat-resistant. The aniline leather is of course chrome IV, PCP and AZO colors free.

We avoid any unnecessary lining: instead, the backside of the leather is finely buffed in a special way, so it is velvety soft and absolutely lint-free.

100% Halal Leather: Leather and lining of the Dudra East products comply with the Islamic Halal law. Our leathers are skin friendly and do not cause allergies.
