~ Materials and composition ~
Because I value our planet and our traditions I only use natural vegetable tanned leather, a process which unlike mineral tanning is carried out with great respect for the environment while giving the leather an outstanding look & feel. It’s full grain which is the most prized layer as it is made of the densest fibers.
The thread is made of beeswaxed wired linen, which means it passes into a starch bath into which beeswax is added. It is then brushed with horsehair and stretched. These operations give the thread a smooth and durable aspect combined with a strong hold.
The stitching is a hand made saddle stitch, a technique used for generations for the making of saddles as well as luxury leather goods for its durability over time and its unique aspect.
