Our leather comes from the finest hides and tanneries in the country. Reducing the tanning process to the minimum, every hide showcases natural markings, blemishes and an heterogeneous grain, making every piece special. A reminder of how leather really is. Full-grain leather, like most finer things in life, improves with age, developing a patina over time and use.
