Oberwerth extends CASUAL LINE with "Richard" – Casual effortlessness and well thought-out functionality mean more room for creativity

Premium bag brand Oberwerth bag has extended its CASUAL LINE to include the Richard camera bag and messenger bag for Leica SL and DSLR systems

(Koblenz/Germany, 09/06/2017) Premium bag maker Oberwerth has expanded its range of handmade camera bags with a new model crafted from 100% leather. RICHARD completes the CASUAL product line with a generous design conceived specifically to meet the needs of those with a Leica SL or an extensive DSLR system.

Functionality re-imagined. Versatility reinvented.

Handmade in Germany from 100% silky-soft tumbled cowhide leather, the RICHARD camera bag boasts a beautiful feel and a soft grip. Its design is both classic and understated, yet at the same time has a casual and sporty feel.

The generously designed interior provides plenty of space to accommodate an extensive camera system, whether this be a Leica SL with Vario-Elmarit 90-280mm telephoto lens or two DSLR camera bodies with interchangeable lenses. The customizable upholstery offers the wearer a wide array of convenient layouts options, while the spacious inner compartment also safely accommodates a 13" laptop or 15" MacBook Pro. Additional pockets on the front and back of the bag offer even more storage options.

RICHARD boasts an extremely high level of comfort – even when fully packed. The velvety soft cowhide leather adapts ergonomically to fit the wearer’s body shape, while the adjustable shoulder strap, crafted from finely woven cotton, features a cushioned leather shoulder pad which evenly distributes the weight of the bag when packed, ensuring it rests gently on the shoulder.

With its casual elegance and laid-back sporty feel, RICHARD combines style with functionality. Handcrafted with love.

The RICHARD camera bag can be bought for $899 including VAT (RRP) from selected photo retailers or direct from www.oberwerth.com. Available now in black and dark brown cowhide leather.
