Where does the leather come from?
Once you receive our product, you will instantly realise how soft and light weight it really is. Not only that, but it is highly durable aswell. Only reason for this being is that the cattle, which is typically small – in order for it to find food, it needs to travel great distances in harsh climate. This nomadic behaviour exposes their skin/fur to intense weather conditions which makes it thick and really light weight.
As a result we are able to create beautiful leather products with no extra seams, cardboard or plastic – which are guaranteed to last you a life time!
We believe in products which stand out in the crowd. As a result, the beautifully handcrafted leather we produce is free from any defects, artificial colouring or unwated processing – its just natural! Due to this, as a customer, once you will start using one of our products, over time you will notice how the leather will change its appearance to a more mature and an aged look. This ageing of the leather, not only makes it more flexible, but also toughens it up. Due to this natural property of leather used, our products are not only waterproof, but also dust proof and can withstand rough usage as well.
If for any reason you notice that the leather breaks or you experience any kind of hardware related issue, Contact Us and our craftsmen will repair it or we will replace it depending on the issue. That’s our lifetime promise!
