For each product we make, we carefully source premium full-grain vegetable-tanned leather. Examining each hide to find the right spots to begin tracing and cutting out the pieces by hand.
Each product is saddle-stitched by hand using traditional techniques. Saddle-stitching is the preferred method still used today by saddlemakers for its durability and strength. Even if the thread snaps or gets cut the stitching won't unravel.
To finish each edge we use a combination of techniques to achieve a smooth rounded edge. Each edge is finished with locally sourced natural beeswax providing a clean, water-resistant shine.
Before we ship each product we treat our leather using all natural Smith's Leather Balm. Made from only three natural skin-care ingredients, it is safe enough to use as a hand salve or lip balm. The added step of conditioning your leather begins the patina process as well as enhancing the natural grain of each piece.
