All of our products are hand stitched, using the time-tested Saddle Stitch technique, for longevity and beauty. Choose Imported French Lin Cable (Linen Thread) for it's beautifully rounded stitches & rich matte tones. Choose Ritza25 Tiger Thread for its bold colours, thick stitch & smooth, flat appearance against the leather. Choose premium, locally manufactured Polyester Thread for a classic twisted stitched luster.
Our cow & calf leather products are handmade from the finest full-grain, vegetable tanned leathers. The colour chosen for your leather item, is stained by hand into the leather and sealed with natural oils, rendering the leather supple and ready to age with a beautiful patina.
We believe in using hardware that will last the duration of the product's life, if not longer. Therefore, we only use solid metal hardware, in brass or stainless steel, with various finishes. This means no rust and no unexpected breakages.
