This leather hails from Seidel Tannery in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. During the tanning process, Navigator leather is infused with oils that not only give it a rich, creamy hand feel, but allow it to take on a personality of its own as you carry it. Scratches rub out easily and the color variation that naturally occurs with wear only enhances its character — making it the ultimate no-fuss leather.
Canfield Relaxed Messenger
The Shinola Canfield Leather Collection takes its cues from its namesake. Clean, crisp, and classic, the Canfield’s simplicity belies an inner complexity and sophistication. These leather pieces are staples with style, everyday bags that are anything but basic.
The Canfield Relaxed Messenger is business in front, party on the strap. The durable flap snaps into place with a magnetic closure. Lift the flap to find a cotton-lined interior with two slip pockets for your phone and accessories, as well as a 14” padded laptop sleeve.
Finished with durable brass hardware in a gunmetal finish, the Relaxed Messenger is a bag that lets its hair down—but only after a hard day’s work.

For everyday care:
Use a dry, clean, and soft cloth to dust or remove debris from surface. Avoid long-term exposure to direct sunlight. Color transfer may occur due to friction against clothing and other surfaces. If leather becomes wet, blot with a dry, clean and soft cloth to remove standing water, and then air dry. Note that leather is susceptible to water damage/stains.
To spot clean:
Use a soft, dampened cloth to gently clean the surface using a light circular motion. Do not scrub or rub in one spot for an extended period of time or apply too much pressure when cleaning as this may damage and discolor the leather. Allow leather to air dry; never apply heat to leather. Note that some stains may not come clean from the surface of semi-aniline and aniline leathers.
Annual Cleaning and Conditioning for longevity:
Prior to conditioning, follow instructions for everyday care and spot cleaning to ensure surface is free of dirt and debris. Use a leather balm/cream, such as Chamberlain's Leather Milk Healing Balm or Chamberlain's Leather Formula No. 1, annually or as needed to condition the leather item, lessen scuffs/scratches and prolong product life. Using a clean cloth or soft sponge, apply a small amount of balm or conditioner to the leather surface in a light circular motion. Spot conditioning may cause uneven color as leather balms or conditioners may darken leather. For best results, follow conditioning product instructions. Over conditioning may leave undesired residue on leather surface. Always test all creams and balms in a hidden area first as leather will darken.
