A highlight for this year-end is the full leather venture for OGL 9981 Bag Collection, the well-tested OGL 9981 Explorer Leather Bag. Spending one year of testing and experimenting on leathers, Obbi Good Label finally selected the Full-Grain Cowhide Leathers for this series. A total of 3 colours, Black, Brown and Flax (pale-yellowish) grainy surface finish. Being Full-Grain, all natural marks visible and fiber strengths are retain for long-lasting properties. And instead of turning old, Full-Grain leathers aged with beautiful petina with time.
The design is a 'bin-like' shape, with OGL 9981 wings and Brass Tag on the front. Its tubular body is carefully thought through to minimize stitching joints, hence product durability will be rely more on inherent leather strength and quality. Another advantage of lesser stitching lines is to show the leather's full gracefulness of natural grains in its continuous, circular body.
The idea of this Explorer Leather Bag came from an explorer's point of view. A bag that is tough to withstand long travels ruggedness but not compromising gentlemen's style. Easy to use with ample storage capacity and versatile carrying ergonomics.
Selecting Full-Grain Cowhide Leathers for this Explorer Bag not only does it give elegant, stylish gentlemen look, but also very much with functionality in mind. Most of the time, bags that are built for travels uses tough materials but they are equally too heavy to use, extremely thick.

Their natural characteristic of extremely breathable properties allow moistures to dry up faster, thus maintaining its supple and dense conditions most of the time.
