The last backpack you'll ever buy
The beauty of a Bati bag is how it evolves over time and comes to fit you like your favorite pair of jeans. The leather is stiff at first, but softens over time with use, exposure to the sun, and proper conditioning. The more you wear it, the more the leather becomes a canvas for your favorite memories - whether it was that time you backpacked through the mountains of Peru or got splashed while whale-watching in Patagonia. Solempowers that voice inside you that yearns for adventure and the unknown. So try something new and bring your Bati bag along for the ride!
Conditioning: To improve quality, tone and feel of the leather, condition twice a year or as needed by applying Vasoline to a microfiber glove or cloth and massaging it evenly onto the leather. Bati's vegetable-tanned leather absorbs moisture and natural oils and takes on a darker, richer tone afterwards.*Conditioning is a great way to blend together the various marks and imperfections of the leather and bring out the natural patina.
Liquids:Bati leather can get wet! Our leather is treated with organic ingredients that make it water resistant. Before making the goods, we actually wet the hide with a sponge and stretch the leather out to make it softer. So don't worry if the leather gets wet, just let it dry out.*Condition the leather from time to time after exposure to water.
Spills & Stains:Bati leather is durable and tough to stain. Stains appear more prominently on lighter leather colors. Treat stains promptly with a damp cloth and wipe clean. If treated quickly, most spills will not leave a stain. If marks or stains do persist, soak a sponge in lemon juice and rub the affected area with force.*After cleaning, you can condition the stain and the surrounding area to even out the tone.
