OUR LEATHER The leather has 1st grade, so it naturally has good quality and with proper use, it can last for a lifetime. With time the leather will gain it's own unique patina, as a result, you'll get a more rustic and vintage look. The more you wear the strap - the better it gets.
The leather is a natural material. It is not waterproof. Please, don't swim wearing a leather watch band. In case if leather got wet please, dab off the excess of water with a towel and let it dry.
SADDLE STITCH Saddle stitching is the benchmark for handmade stitching of any kind. Saddle stitching by hand requires more than one meter of cord in the average length strap, two harness needles, two hands, and a keen eye. An average strap has over 100 individual handmade stitch holes. A saddle-stitch offers a unique look that is to be found on very few products of today. It has a distinctive handmade look.
We use high quality waxed Irish linen thread.
Tärnsjö Tannery Our Leather comes from Tärnsjö Tannery and is described by the tannery as follows:
The art of vegetable tanning leather is thousands of years old. Since 1873 Tärnsjö Garveri has been using these time-tested methods. Industrialization has allowed tanneries to offer standard hides at lower prices and many tanneries have chosen that path. We have not. Why?
Because the aesthetic of vegetable tanned leather is unparalleled and the patina that it develops with use over time cannot be produced any other way. It is also the only way to produce premium leather of desired quality while at the same time respecting our environment.
