One of our first deliveries this season comes from classic Laplander brand Kero. Founded already in 1929 in the village of Sattajärvi in the northern most part of Sweden, Kero is a company that defines authenticity & quality. The Kero family still runs the company, which is now part tannery, part shoe- & accessory-makers. Although strictly a tannery to begin with, the company expanded in the 1950's setting up it's own line of peaked shoes & accesories.
Here's a closer view of some of the beautiful pieces we've recieved from Kero so far.
The Skalman key pouch/card holder is made of the most supple reindeer leather. The pouch is ment to be worn around the neck & comes with Kero's signature reindeer lining, key ring & a removable cardholder.

The classic Råstojaure back pack is made up of super high quality 100% tree bark tanned reindeer leather. Wonderfully soft to the touch, we are sure that this bag will only continue to become more beautiful as it ages. The Råstojaure design is as classic as it gets featuring one large main compartment, two side compartments & a smaller front compartment.
