Code Postal ‘Mandate’ shoulder bag: also known as ‘financial bag’, this little bag that dates from the early 20th century. Even now, it still inspires many collections of leather goods and can be found in current fashion trends. In earlier days, this small postbag was reserved for the collection and the distribution of mandates. The postmen used it for payment at home. It was also used by the motorised mail men in the countryside.

Details: rounded shape, front flap with riveted central buckle, adjustable shoulder strap 140 cm with a buckle, completely saddle stitched, inside zip pocket.

The shoulder bags by Code Postal are accurate reproductions of the postman bags in the 1930’s. Besides distribution of mail, letters and postcards, the mail organization supported other departments with the delivery of the administrative documents, mandates and telegraphs. For each of these jobs, smaller satchels were created. The form of these bags still exist almost a century later as fashion accessories by large and well-known brands. These bags however are the authentic ones! The Code Postal bags are made from sturdy cow leather, waxed and tanned in Italy at Mastrotto to Arzignano ( Vicenza). All satchels are made in France.

Technical characteristics The leather of these bags is supposed to develop a patina and age beautifully over time. Nevertheless, some care might be necessary in some cases:
Do not expose the leather to direct sunlight or direct heat sources
Sweat stains should be left to air dry slowly in a moderate climate
On places where the colour has faded, use a clean cloth with a small amount of shampoo or Marseille soap.
The leather has been waterproofed. After a few years, it might be a good idea to waterproof again using a special leather spray.
Please avoid all other 'grand-mother recipes'.
