Picnic Bottle Cooler

A collaboration between Black Cow & Bill Amberg


Black Cow has collaborated with Bill Amberg, one of the most respected names in contemporary British leathercraft, to create a limited-edition Black Cow Picnic Bottle Cooler. Made with textured, natural wool-felt and vegetable-tanned leather with Black Cow detailing, the cooler is designed to hold a bottle of Black Cow and a small truckle of Black Cow Deluxe Cheddar.



The materials used to make the carrier were chosen for their durable and functional properties, as well as their sustainable qualities. The wool-felt is made using waste wool from the fashion industry. It is a natural insulator, keeping things either hot or cold by absorbing the moisture in the air. This particular leather, a calf skin used for lining shoes, is a remnant from shoe-making industry. It ages beautifully, subtly patinating and changing character over time.


The cooler is crafted from textured wool-felt and vegetable-tanned leather, both materials have inherent properties that make them wonderfully durable. Wool-felt is a natural insulator. Leather is incredibly strong.

Available to buy from Black Cow and exclusively in Selfridges.
