Our timeless designs and use of full grain leather and the highest quality materials are part of what makes our leather goods last a lifetime. Purchasing leather accessories for personal use or as a gift for someone else is an investment that should last a lifetime.
Our leather passport covers, handbags, leather crossbody bags, leather iPhone wallets and leather clutches are made with oil tanned leather using waxed braided thread and saddle stitched. With proper care, the stitches will last the lifetime of the piece. All of the leather edges are finished with a burnish, dye, or edge paint.
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 or touched frequently. The patina becomes more beautiful with the passing of time and frequency of use. We use only the highest quality U.S. sourced leather. The oil tanned leather we use comes from a tannery in Springfield, Missouri.
