All of our products are hand made with traditional leather crafting techinques. They are cut, saddle stitched and burnished by hand. Each product will have slight variations from one another due to this hand made process. Our stock of leathers are sourced from the finest tanneries around the world. They are full grain which tend to have different characteristics within each hide. The combination of this process results in a unique feeling between every product.
