Our timeless designs and use of full grain leather and quality material are what makes our leather goods last a lifetime. Purchasing leather accessories for personal use or as a gift for someone else are an investment that should last a lifetime.
Our leather passport cover, handbags, leather crossbody bags, leather iPhone wallet and leather clutches are made from oil tanned leather with braided thread and all edges are finished with a burnish, dye or edge paint. All of our leather products are stitched by hand using a saddle stitch with waxed braided thread/cord which means the stitches will last a life time.
Oil tanned leather is buttery, soft and durable; the result of a variety of oils being added during the tanning process. Oil tanned leather is water resistant, wrinkle resistant and very strong yet soft to the touch, which makes it the perfect material for the bodies of the majority of our bags and purses and many men’s and women’s accessories.
Oil tanned leather is easily cared for by wiping with saddle soap (Fiebing’s Saddle Soap) or Ivory Soap. To restore the look of a like new briefcase, apply a very light coating of Mink Oil paste. All of these products can be purchased locally at most brick and mortar establishments that sale shoes. Ivory Soap can be purchased at most grocery stores or drug stores.
Over time, the leather will become shiny and smooth and a little darker, particularly in the spots that are worn next to your body. The patina becomes more beautiful with the passing of time and frequency of use. The oil tanned leather we use is made in Springfield, Missouri. We use oil tanned leather in our Crossbody bags, wallets, key chains, men’s and women’s accessories and slender tote among other products.
We select our materials with great care and use them in ways that ensure optimal performance that will last a lifetime.
Our handcrafted leather goods start with the best possible raw materials. We use only the highest quality U.S. sourced leather.
