We're asked all the time about the materials we use, where they're from and if it's all above board. Here's the lowdown so you can tell your vegan friend...

What's so good about leather anyway?
For starters, it’s natural. That's what makes the grain and colour of every piece unique and unrepeatable, and give it the ability to develop in character as it ages. Leather is soft but strong and unlike those horrible synthetic materials, they last.
How very European of you
You should know, there’s leather, and then... there's leather. We use predominantly premium Italian, French and New Zealand leathers, and although they cost more, the hand feel and the way in which they wear, is far superior to the more commonly used and cheaper Asian leathers. Our tannery’s develop our leather just for us, some are washed, others shrunken, and some embossed.
Like mum always said, if you're going to do something, do it well. We don't envy this job... but even the string, swing card and knots have to be done just so.
